It was the trees, rolling hills and solitude that attracted Loyola College to 53 acres of forest and farmland in northern Baltimore County as a potential site for the spiritual retreat center that college officials have long hoped to build within a short drive of their Baltimore campus. But those are the attributes that some farmers and homeowners near the Parkton property worry will be destroyed if the county allows the college to build the center on land zoned for agricultural use. "The area would be altered forever after they go in," Nedda Evans, an opponent of the project, said yesterday during the first of four scheduled days of testimony before county Zoning Commissioner Lawrence E. Schmidt.
