A Circuit Court judge has dismissed a multimillion-dollar damage suit brought against Baltimore County by the developers of Colvista, a proposed 3,000-unit development adjacent to the Loch Raven Reservoir.Security Management Corp., the developer, claimed its constitutional rights were violated in 1992 when the County Council turned down its request to change the zoning on 215 acres west of York Road during the comprehensive rezoning process done every four years. The council rejected Security's request because it wanted to limit large, high-density residential development to its two established growth centers, Owings Mills and White Marsh.
