A recent column concerning the city of Baltimore's announced decision to sue me, individually, and other citizens was grossly misleading and incomplete. It failed to mention some important information that would reveal that there's another side to this story. The article claimed that the Canton Urban Renewal Plan requires that a land-based promenade be installed along the harbor. In fact, the only obligation set forth in the Urban Renewal Plan is that the promenade be "permanent."

It is very disturbing news to read in The Sun that the Citizen's Promenade walking area in Fells Point will be done away with by a decision coming from the Board of Estimates this coming Wednesday without any consultation with the Promenade Committee ( "Kevin Plank's Recreation Pier hotel plan moves forward," June 9). We know what the vote will be 3-to-2 because Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake controls the board and she always gets her way when it comes to "money over citizens.

The city's Board of Estimates is to vote Wednesday on a plan for a hotel on the historic Recreation Pier in Fells Point, calling for the city to alter an ordinance to allow the Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank-backed hotel to proceed without a public promenade around the property. Instead of the promenade, Sagamore Development Co., controlled by Plank and Chevy Chase developer Marc Weller, would be required to make improvements to Thames Street, from Ann Street to South Broadway and in front of the pier, according to the agenda for Wednesday's Board of Estimates meeting.

For better or worse, the dogs -- both hot and pet -- have been banned from Havre de Grace's waterfront promenade.The beer cans and plastic containers buried in the marshy shallows of the Susquehanna along the wooden walkway will not be subjected to the insidious pollution of half-eaten buns and scraps of mustard-smeared wieners. The sensitive digestive systems of Chesapeake aquatic life, from the waterfowl and scavenger fish to worms and algae, will be saved from the decomposing organic discards of human consumption.

A long-impassable section of the brick promenade that rings the Inner Harbor could soon be repaired if a settlement deal among Baltimore officials, a team of Harbor East developers and a design firm is approved by the city's spending board. The section of promenade, which spans the 1400 and 1500 blocks of Thames St., was built by the city with a state highway grant in 2004. It partially collapsed about three years ago, after "undetected soft soils" settled, shifting the bricks. City workers fenced off the damaged portion to prevent injuries.

Promenade Girl lived up to her role as the odds-on favorite when she caught front-running Princess Pelona in the deep stretch to win yesterday's feature at Laurel Park, the $85,000 Nellie Morse Stakes for fillies and mares. Promenade Girl, a 4-year-old filly, broke sluggishly in the field of seven, but, under Erick Rodriguez, worked her way forward and mounted a drive to win the mile race by 1 3/4 lengths in 1 minute, 38.58 seconds. Princess Pelona held onto the runner-up spot and Ask Queenie finished third.

The city expects to start construction this fall on one of the final sections of the seven-mile Inner Harbor promenade. The $6.6 million project will replace a temporary wooden walkway with brick to match the rest of the promenade. It will connect to the path at President and Lancaster streets and stretch about a quarter-mile, from East Falls Avenue to Katyn Memorial Circle. The work, which to minimize disruptions will be done from barges, is expected to take a year to complete.

The floating promenade that rings the Moorings, a collection of million-dollar Canton townhomes, was intended to be a peaceful spot to stroll, jog or gaze over the water. But for city officials and townhome residents, it's been the source of several years of headaches — and could soon be the subject of a lawsuit. With the promenade in disrepair, the city wants the developer and homeowners to build a brick walkway at the water's edge that would join the seven-mile promenade that wraps around the Inner Harbor from Federal Hill to Canton.

In the summer of 1989, the Baltimore Harbor Promenade opened officially. It began with a 3-mile walk from the Canton Waterfront Park and concluded at Rash Field in the Inner Harbor. "The Promenade was designed as a permanent public pedestrian walkway with accompanying landscaping along the harbor's edge. When completed, it was to be 7.5 miles long and reach the Baltimore Museum of Industry. " That quote came from Mayor Kurt Schmoke's administration. The Promenade in 2013 remains public property along the waterfront edges of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, but many questions still remain about its future.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration agreed to pay $400,000 Wednesday toward building a brick walkway in Canton, a project intended to close a gap in the promenade along Baltimore's harbor. The walkway in front of The Moorings, a neighborhood of million-dollar townhouses off Boston Street, has been a source of contention between the city and the site's developer. The developer built a floating walkway instead of the brick sidewalk the city is constructing along the rest of the waterfront.

Here is what the audience would have liked to hear from the developer about their plan for the mall. All we heard was about process, not about product. It would have been exciting to hear the developer say the following: "As you know, the overall Downtown Plan calls for a pedestrian connection between the Mall-to-Lakefront, a multi-phase project that could take some time to realize. We are excited to propose the first phase of the Mall-to-Lakefront pedestrian connection. Our concept is to remove the L.L.Bean building to open up access to a promenade leading to a new Mall entrance.
