Owners of a South River marina have asked the state Court of Special Appeals to strike down an Anne Arundel County zoning rule that is preventing them from expanding the marina.The attorney for Holiday Point Marina in Selby Bay says the county is overstepping its bounds in a 1979 zoning rule that bars new boat slips less than 2,640 feet from a shellfish bed.The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) imposes a less stringent, 1,500-foot buffer. According to plans submitted by marina owners Frederick and Maureen Mershon, the nearest slip would be about 1,800 feet from an oyster bed.For nearly a decade, the owners have been trying to double their marina to 299 slips.
