Edgewater homeowner groups have given tentative support to new commercial development at Lee Airport, provided the project adheres to strict design and building requirements. Although pockets of residents oppose a change in zoning that would allow airport owners to build a retail village along Route 2, the consensus among many homeowner groups is that a deal with the Lee family, which has owned property in the area since the 1800s, is better than no deal at all. "No one wants to see that land developed, but most people are savvy enough to know that it will happen, and if you have some control, it sort of allays your fears a little bit," Bill Edmonston, vice president of South River Park Community Association, said Tuesday.

Plans for a shopping and residential complex on the Lee Airport property in Edgewater have stalled after a county official said he will withdraw a bill that would have allowed the project to proceed after more than three years of negotiations between neighbors and the developer. The bill, originally scheduled to be introduced at Tuesday's County Council meeting, called for the state to transfer control of a service road running parallel to Route 2 to the county, which would swap it for an equivalent piece of the Lee family's land.

WASHINGTON - Let me see if I can write this column without getting sued. It has to do with my old pal Lee Kuan Yew, who prefers to be called "senior minister" rather than dictator of Singapore, and whose family members have been doing exceedingly well lately. In kowtowing to the Lee family, the Bloomberg News Service- the feisty, aggressive newcomer to coverage of global finance on cable and computers - has just demeaned itself and undermined the cause of a free online press. Early last month, Patrick Smith, a Bloomberg columnist, dared to take note of the elevation of Ho Ching, the senior minister's daughter-in-law, to head Temesek, the powerful state-owned investment company.

A disagreement brewing among Edgewater neighbors over development at Lee Airport, including plans to build a retail village along Route 2, could blow up at an Anne Arundel County Council public hearing tonight. The hearing will focus on the Edgewater/Mayo Small Area Plan. Expected to attend are residents who worked on the plan, which includes a commercial center at the Lee property, and others who object to the project. "All of the zoning aspects of the plan benefit one community," said Peter J. Quirk, a resident of South River Park, who also worries about the impact development would have on the "already compromised" Warehouse Creek.

Residents of the Edgewater area turned out for a public hearing at county government headquarters in Annapolis recently to discuss a proposed commercial development at Lee Airport. Although five homeowners groups recently wrote letters to County Council members endorsing a zoning change that would be needed to build a retail village along Route 2, pockets of resistance remain. Some residents worry that commercial activity could harm Warehouse Creek. At the meeting Monday night, Councilwoman Barbara D. Samorajczyk, an Annapolis Democrat, questioned the category of commercial zoning proposed for the site, saying it might encourage construction of a larger, regional shopping center rather than a smaller, local one. Residents who back the retail concept said they did so only after the Lee family, which owns and operate the airport in Edgewater, agreed to limit commercial space at the complex to 387,000 square feet.

Residents who sought to restrict commercial development at Lee Airport in Edgewater are asking Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens to take up their plight and veto a recent zoning decision. The Anne Arundel County Council voted 6-1 this week to assign commercial zoning to 30 acres at the airport, where the owners want to build a retail village. But some residents strongly oppose the idea, arguing that the shopping center will pollute Warehouse Creek and create traffic hassles on Route 2.
