For Lisa and Stuart Schabes and their family, Passover is a time to celebrate the tenets of their faith. It's also a time when Lisa Schabes spends several days preparing festive, sumptuous meals in her spacious kosher kitchen. These specialty kitchens have layout and design elements that aid Orthodox Jews in upholding traditional dietary laws. "I've had it about seven or eight years, and it was a long time coming — my husband was very generous to me," said Schabes, a mother of five and educator who resides in the Cheswolde community in Northwest Baltimore.

As a former resident of Reisterstown for many years and now a resident of Pikesville, I am very excited at the prospect of Foundry Row and the Owings Mills Mall revitalization and Metro Centre coming to our area. It has been many years since I have been able to shop in my own area instead of traveling to White Marsh, Columbia, Towson or Hunt Valley. It is very frustrating to see development in all other areas of Baltimore County and not the Pikesville, Owings Mills, Reisterstown area.

As a resident of Owings Mills for the past 10 years, I can tell you that I am very excited about the three planned developments ("No 'courtesy' for Wegmans," May 27). I am looking forward to taking my daughter to the Metro Centre's library. After years of becoming a ghost town, it is about time the mall receives a makeover. And with Solo Cup abandoning its factory, it makes sense that it become a retail center. I support all three projects because they will bring much-needed retail to the Owings Mills community.
