The thrust of The Sun's editorial and the approach of public officials for decades for improving Liberty Road and other secondary roads with aging retail areas has been to treat the problems as economic development issues ("Life on Liberty Road," May 23). The solutions have been to update failing areas with new buildings without dealing with the core problems. People need to be connected to their neighborhoods. Suburban Baltimore County communities were built around the love affair with the car. They became commuting communities.

WHEN Baltimore County Executive James T. Smith Jr. designated Randallstown as a new community-based revitalization project last month, he set the bar high. Despite any number of such initiatives in the past, that area remains a textbook example of sprawl and congestion. Residents' expectations have been raised and dashed so many times in the past three decades that the only way for the county to restore its credibility is to finally do something about nightmarish Liberty Road traffic. The huge traffic volume is not surprising.

Finally, late last week the owner of the Rockdale strip-tease bar struck a deal, pledging to phase out nude dancers by July 10. After that, the premises of his "club" in the 8100 block of Liberty Road are to revert to a pool hall.This is a victory for the Liberty Road communities which fought Body Talk.

IN rain-splattered Randallstown yesterday, they joined voices to trumpet a bright new day of art and culture, and bicycle paths and pedestrian bridges, and theaters and playing fields. That day will take a few years to arrive, but so what? In Randallstown, it can feel like years just crossing from one side of cluttered Liberty Road to the other. This northwest corridor of Baltimore County is a collage of green and leafy residential neighborhoods divided by a kind of Berlin Wall of gas stations and fast-food joints, bail bond operations and liquor stores, and traffic that coughs and wheezes and sputters at its center.
