Ocean City's planning and zoning commission is scheduled to meet tonight about the possibility of banning short-term rental properties in some residential neighborhoods. The meeting was prompted by complaints from year-round residents in Mallard Island, an upscale community of single-family homes on the bay. The idea has also generated concern that a change will hurt investment by other property owners, who rely on rental income to subsidize maintenance and other costs. The commission is looking at the possibility of changing the rules for property owners in single-family neighborhoods considered R-1, including Mallard Island, Caine Woods, Montego Bay and Little Salisbury.

Construction of new homes is lagging around the country, and Maryland is no exception. Permits for new homes, which the U.S. Census Bureau tracks as a barometer of the home-building industry, fell 8 percent in Maryland in the first six months of this year compared to the same period in 2013. The number of single-family detached homes authorized for construction fell 15 percent. That's worse than the country as a whole, where multifamily structures lifted permitting 5 percent through June.

Thwarted by community opposition to its efforts to build semidetached and single-family homes, a developer has drawn up a new plan for 9 wooded acres in North Baltimore. The proposal by Struever Rouse Homes calls for 19 single-family homes starting at $295,000 near Falls Road and Lake Avenue, just south of the city-county line on one of the city's most desirable undeveloped tracts. Unlike the previous plan for 30 units, which would have required legislation to allow 12 semidetached homes, the new proposal needs no City Council action because the property is zoned for single-family residential use. The new plan is subject to approval by the city's Planning Commission, which reviews subdivision and development plans.

Gene Iager and Chris Pereira live on opposite sides of Scaggsville Road in Fulton, and take conflicting views of a 91-acre expanse of grass and woods that lies between them. Iager looks out his front window and across the road at the land and sees a future development of apartments, townhouses and single-family homes that would let his farming family cash in on years of hard work, while also suiting the goals of local and state planners. Pereira looks at the green field out her back door and sees a potential suburban mess - what she believes will be too many people on too little land, generating more traffic than roads can handle, packing schools and spilling runoff into a stream that runs through the property not far from Triadelphia Reservoir.

Anne Arundel County's stormwater fee hasn't been collected yet, but the County Council has already changed it. By a 7-0 vote Monday night, council members agreed to reduce the maximum fee that commercial property owners would pay and to phase in the fee for some property owners. The changes were made to make the stormwater fee more palatable to County Executive Laura Neuman, who vetoed the stormwater fee that the council passed earlier this spring. Owners of nonresidential properties still must pay based on the percentage of their lot that's covered by impervious surfaces such as parking lots and rooftops.

Baltimore-area home sales rose 15 percent in April compared with a year earlier, and newly pending deals soared as buyers kicked the spring housing market into higher gear, according to data released Friday. Prices remained largely unchanged at $238,000 for the typical home in the region — Baltimore and its five suburban counties. That remains well under the region's April peak of $275,000 six years ago, after the housing bubble pushed up prices but before the bust and financial crisis deflated them.

The word that best describes house hunters these days might well be hesitant, to hear the talk among real estate agents and new-home salespeople.Buyers look and look some more.

Seward, sales consultant for Silverbrook Wood, garden condominiums in Owings Mills New Town, priced from the mid-$80,000s to $113,000.
