Anne Arundel County Council members have heard what the public thinks about a developer's plan to turn a west county airport into a housing subdivision - and now they must decide if they want to allow RiverWood over the objection of local pilots and residents. Monday night's council meeting dragged into early yesterday morning, postponing possible action on the Polm Cos. proposal. Nearly 60 people spoke at the meeting, almost all of them opposed to the developer's plan for condominiums and townhouses.

The Anne Arundel County Council shot down last night a developer's plan to transform a small west-county airport into a dense housing development, ending a protracted debate that one member called the council's most contentious in more than five years. The decision announced by Councilman Bill D. Burlison late last night followed hours of testimony by some of the more than 250 people who packed the Arundel Center in Annapolis. Supporters went as far as to say approving the development would have helped save lives.

A few weeks ago, a local developer's plan to turn Suburban Airport in Laurel into a townhouse development called RiverWood sounded unlikely. The 54-acre airport on a sliver of land along Brock Bridge Road borders a flood plain. It would require major rezoning in an area teeming with development. And with small Washington-area airports hurting in the wake of post-Sept. 11 restrictions, county officials had pledged to keep the runway open. But tomorrow, the Polm Cos. plan for 641 townhouses and condominiums is up for a possible vote at the Anne Arundel County Council, buoyed by a need for affordable housing -- and Polm's shrewd marketing.

More support urged for RiverWood plans The Anne Arundel County Council will hold a very important vote on Feb. 2 to determine the future of the Suburban Airport located in western Anne Arundel County. Presently, this 55-year-old, 54-acre site is underutilized as a private airport and is in competition with the county-owned and heavily subsidized (approximately $300,000 annually) Tipton Airport at Fort Meade. Rick Polm, a longtime county resident, builder and developer, has proposed a "visionary plan" for this property to be named RiverWood that is a "win-win" situation for all involved.
