Tearing down the Dulaney Valley Apartments and building more than three times as many upscale apartments and condominiums in their place would be a fine idea, if not for the traffic it would bring, Towson residents said at a meeting last night. With its proposed brick and stone accents, courtyards and hidden parking, the $160 million development would look nice, community leaders have said. But at a community session at the Towson public library, residents expressed worries about the traffic that would be generated by about 900 units proposed at Dulaney Valley Road and Fairmount Avenue, across from Goucher College and less than a block from Towson Town Center.

County Councilwoman Diane R. Evans resigned yesterday from the citizen task force that will select a site for the new detention center, calling the group's decision-making process "flawed."At the same time, County Executive Robert R. Neall accused the task force of "playing games" after it eliminated the Ordnance Road site he favored and added other sites for consideration that he said clearly do not meet the county's criteria.Ms. Evans, a Republican from Arnold, said she was resigning because she feels the Detention Center Siting and Alternative Sentences Task Force has strayed from its original mission, which was to find a location for the new jail.

No one should be discouraged that Carroll County officials and representatives of West Shore Communications have failed to agree on a new site for the company's proposed telecommunications tower after a couple of meetings. Many more meetings may be required to settle on an alternative to a controversial site on Hollenberry Road, but both sides should persist in their efforts.Sykesville officials and neighbors of the Hollenberry Road site show no signs of abandoning their fight to stop construction of West Shore's 200-foot tower, which began last fall but was halted abruptly.

For the Les Jenkins Family Fun Park, the last six months have been a strange ride indeed. In May, when developer Jenkins proposed his project - to include go-cart tracks, waterslides, BMX bike tracks, a skate park and an arcade next to the Glen Burnie waste disposal site - he piqued the interest of county officials who thought area teen-agers needed more entertainment options. But this week, some of those same officials helped push through an emergency bill banning go-carts from commercial recreational facilities, abruptly scuttling the project hours before a scheduled Board of Appeals hearing on the issue.

Little to be gained from Lowe's proposal I oppose Lowe's coming to Montgomery Road for many reasons: quality-of-life issues (traffic, noise, pollution, early-hour deliveries, 25 tractor-trailers a day making deliveries) and economic issues (residential devaluation; no true need for another home improvement store -- why risk putting a small competitor out of business and creating yet another vacated commercial property in our area?). There is no benefit to bringing Lowe's to our community other than the YMCA (a quasi-public institution which receives grants from state and county funds)
