The state is planning a new building in Prince George's County to house the state Department of Housing and Community Development, Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Monday. The agency, which employs 385 workers, will move from Crownsville to New Carrollton next fall, O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown said. The new building, to be called Metroview, is to be built near the Orange Line and the proposed Purple Line of the Washington Metro. O'Malley called it a "modern investment" that will "allow us to do the right thing for reducing traffic and sprawl, the right thing for our quality of life, and the right thing for our land, our water, and our air. " Metroview is to be developed by Carl Williams of Grand Central Development, the governor's office said.

Republicans in Annapolis continue their push to get more information about what went wrong with the state's troubled health exchange website, and to scrap the site entirely. Maryland Senate Minority Leader David Brinkley called for an independent investigation, but was told in a letter from Attorney General Douglas Gansler that his office lacked the authority. Gansler, a gubernatorial candidate, said he too was concerned that "the taxpayers of Maryland had been poorly served by the executive branch's mismanagement of health care reform implementation," and reiterated comments he made earlier about exploring recovery of taxpayer dollars from contractors.

The Howard County Board of Education on Tuesday approved a new site to be considered for construction of an elementary school in Elkridge, giving an alternative to a previously proposed site that raised concerns about proximity to a MARC rail commuter line and a proposed CSX rail cargo transfer station. The new site, on Ducketts Lane adjacent to U.S. 1, is 10.1 acres and will include space for a ball field and multipurpose field. Howard school officials said a permit is required from the state Department of the Environment and the Army Corps of Engineers to fill in wetlands.

Every option is potentially fraught with more technical headaches and expense. Exchange officials are mulling five possible scenarios in the wake of the disastrous launch of the exchange, where technical difficulties have thwarted thousands of people from signing up for health insurance.

The frustrating, 18-month search for a north Baltimore County site on which to build a replacement for the burned out Sparks Elementary School may be nearing an end.Water testing and an environmental report on about 50 acres owned by the Archdiocese of Baltimore -- east of Interstate 83 and southeast of Old Belfast Road -- are expected to be completed by next month, says Gene L. Neff, chief of facilities for county schools.If the tests and report turn up no problems, the search for a site may be over because the land already passed sewage percolation tests -- and the archdiocese is willing to sell, said an archdiocesan spokesman.

With Beretta's plans to expand in Tennessee rather than Maryland, I guess we lost another business to a state with lower taxes, a better business environment and better, safer, more reasonable living conditions for its employees than Maryland ( "Beretta chooses Tennessee for new site," Jan. 29). The legislature better take note, because our governor won't. And Comptroller Peter Franchot had better wake up and realize that Maryland is losing more high-income taxpayers who can afford to leave this place.

Charles Lollar, one of the three announced Republican candidates for governor next year, said his campaign web site has been off line for four or five days but denied its absence is a sign of disarray in his campaign. Other Republican sources disagreed, with one respected blog on GOP affairs labeling the campaign a "train wreck. " In an interview Tuesday night, Lollar said the web site had been taken down to make revisions. "We made it a decision to do it that way purposely because we changed the whole look," said Lollar, a Charles County business executive and Marine Reserve officer.

Building a new Mayo Elementary School across the street from where it has stood for 64 years would cost more and take at least two years longer than demolishing the school and rebuilding it in place, according to an environmental review released yesterday. The 15 acres across the street is "developable," wrote consultants for KCI Technologies, but any one of several state agencies could deny the Anne Arundel County school board permission to build on the environmentally sensitive portions of land, now owned by the Mayo Civic Association and the St. Andrew the Fisherman Church.

Though an original deal fell through, Dave Benfield, the craft brewer's president, is bullish on the project, contrary to an early published report in a local trade. "I'm extremely confident we'll be producing beer starting in 2013 out of the new facility," he said.

Elkridge will get a new elementary school for the 2013-2014 academic year now that the sellers of a 10.1-acre site on Ducketts Lane have settled a dispute in court. The Howard County school system was supposed to close the deal with Ducketts Ridge LLC in October, but a shareholder refused to release a lien to the sellers. The $2.64 million deal was put on hold, leaving the school system without property needed to alleviate overcrowding in the northeast and causing the system to file a lawsuit in December.
