Members of the Glen Burnie Town Center committee have until Monday to suggest any changes to a request for proposals for plans to develop the town center.The committee met for the last time yesterday to review a draft copy of the request before the county prepares to send it out.Developers could know as early as mid-July what they need to do to win the job of developing the Town Center, county officials said.An attempt last year to develop the 5.6-acre gravel parking lot fell through because the developer, George Stone, said he needed subsidies to make the project financially feasible.

The Baltimore Development Corp. said Thursday it was reissuing a request for proposal to develop three properties, including the former Parkway Theatre, one of the most prominent landmarks in the city's Station North Arts and Entertainment District. The BDC in 2009 confirmed a proposal for the Parkway Theatre project by Cormony Development and Seawall Development Co. But due to "changing conditions" over "considerable periods of time," the city chose to renew the RFP process, according to M.J. "Jay" Brodie, president of the BDC. Samuel Polakoff, head of Cormony Development, said the BDC never told him and Seawall why it was no longer supporting them as developers.

Baltimore officials have abruptly called off their search for a private company to run a city-owned sports arena in Canton, but they say they are exploring ways to privatize the facility. The city had issued a request for proposals from companies interested in running the Clarence H. Du Burns Arena, with a deadline of today. But Monday, with one proposal submitted, the city withdrew its request. Officials declined to say who had submitted a proposal. "We did cancel the request for proposals at this time," said Robert Greene, marketing and media director for the Department of Recreation and Parks, which manages the arena.

The Baltimore Development Corp. is seeking proposals for two development projects on the west side of the city. The city's quasi-public development arm announced Thursday that it had reissued a request for proposal for redevelopment of the Liberty Park area, consisting of five city-owned properties along West Fayette and North Liberty streets in the Market Center Urban Renewal Area. A request last year to develop those properties drew no response, according to the BDC. The latest proposal is due Dec. 12. The second request for proposal is for Liberty Clay, two sites within the Market Center Urban Renewal Area.

It should have been smooth sailing: The Baltimore Development Corp. wanted Hollander Ridge off its hands, and seven companies wanted to take it. But the city's quasi-public economic development agency has scrapped applications for the 51-acre former public housing project and issued a new request for proposals this week, potentially delaying its sale or lease by eight months because of a legal snag. The agency said it wasn't told by the city housing authority until recently that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires Baltimore to consider financial return above all else when selling or leasing the Pulaski Highway site.

Seeking the "frugal" but "efficient" management of hundreds of public housing units, the Housing Authority of Baltimore City is inviting private firms to submit proposals to manage more than a dozen properties, including one of the newest and largest complexes built under the federal HOPE VI program. Lyle Schumann, deputy executive director of the authority, said the goal of the solicitation is to improve the agency's asset management. Although having the properties managed by private firms is nothing new, Schumann said this is the first time the properties have been put out for bid all at once.

More than 50 supporters of the Right Turn of Maryland drug treatment program lobbied the Baltimore County Council yesterday to reject a contract that would give a key piece of the company's business to another firm. Dozens of former addicts told councilmen that Right Turn helped them stay sober and become productive citizens, and many derided the treatment approach of the winning bidder, Pennsylvania-based Gaudenzia Inc., which relies on a "cognitive therapy" model instead of Right Turn's 12-step program.

McLEAN, Va. - Northrop Grumman Corp. plans to bid on a seven-year contract to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory, a Department of Energy facility now run by the University of California. The contract is worth about $2.2 billion a year and has extension options that could add 13 years to the management deal, putting the total value at about $44 billion over a 20-year period, the Los Angeles-based aerospace and defense company said yesterday. Northrop, with $29.85 billion in sales for 2005, said it has experience with many of the scientific areas under research at Los Alamos.

A meeting has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. tomorrow at the St. Paul Community Baptist Church, 1901 E. Federal St., to give city officials community input before they issue a request for proposals for possible redevelopment of the long-vacant American Brewery. Housing officials said they decided to issue an RFP after a developer expressed interest in the nearly 2-acre site in the 1700 block of Gay St. near North Avenue, which the city has owned since the late 1970s and which consists of an 1887 brewhouse and a separate bottling plant.

Preservation planners in Baltimore have found a temporary occupant to reopen the historic but shuttered President Street Station this spring, while the city seeks a long-term tenant. The office of Mayor Sheila Dixon has offered to lease the former train station to the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore, a three-year-old advocacy and service organization that needs work space near the downtown shoreline. The Waterfront Partnership will use the city-owned building at 601 President St. as its headquarters and base of operations for nine safety guides and 11 hospitality guides who patrol the harbor promenade, according to managing consultant Laurie Schwartz.

With little more than a week remaining before the auction of the historic Senator Theatre, Baltimore officials have agreed to purchase the mortgage on the property and either sell or lease it in the future. The city would use $600,000 in cash already guaranteeing a loan to the theater toward approximately $950,000 for the mortgage, held by 1st Mariner Bank, and legal fees. In addition, Mayor Sheila Dixon will seek Board of Estimates approval within the next month to make up the difference with economic development bond funds approved for capital projects, said Deputy Mayor Andrew Frank.

East Baltimore's vacant American Brewery campus could become the headquarters of a Maryland nonprofit social services provider or be restored as a beer-making facility targeting the Hispanic market under two proposals received by the city for the property. A third proposal by a Baltimore-based underground utility company offers to turn a bottling plant on the 2-acre city-owned site in the 1700 block of N. Gay St. into the company's headquarters. But the company said it is not interested in the 19th-century brewhouse that is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Four state legislators have asked the state attorney general to look into Towson University's effort to find a site for off-campus student housing - a search some community members claim favors the developers of a controversial plan proposed for the center of Towson. A request for proposals issued by the school last month came after the Towson Circle III development - a Heritage Properties and Cordish Co. project that includes plans for a 600-bed dormitory - received preliminary approval from the county.

Carroll County and Hampstead will jointly ask developers to submit proposals to redevelop the old elementary school at the town's center. "We're going to put out a request for proposals and see what the proposals would be," Commissioner Donald I. Dell said. "We'd like something everyone can agree on. In the meantime, the county will maintain ownership." The town is eager to find a developer before the two-story brick building deteriorates further, and municipal officials are eager to work with the county.

Leibowits Co. Inc., which hopes to build two office towers at the 500 E. Pratt St. site.The community college, which along with the state controls the 2.8-acre site, intends to issue a formal request for new proposals in the near future.

Taking the first official step toward replacing the 42-year-old 1st Mariner Arena, the Maryland Stadium Authority is soliciting proposals for a study on the feasibility of building an arena in downtown Baltimore. The new building would be on the site of the 1st Mariner Arena and would have a smaller seating capacity than would be required for an NHL or NBA team, according to the request for proposals, which are due Nov. 1. The current arena, built in 1962 as the Baltimore Civic Center, seats between 11,000 and 14,000, depending on the configuration.
