For the first time in about a decade, outdoor ice skating could return to the Inner Harbor with the creation of a temporary rink at McKeldin Square. Baltimore's spending panel approved an agreement Wednesday with the Waterfront Partnership, which hopes a temporary rink will bring more city residents and visitors to the harbor during the slower winter months. But the nonprofit must raise $250,000 by Labor Day to pull off the plans. Other efforts to revive skating at the harbor have failed since an outdoor rink at Rash Field in Federal Hill was closed when its aging equipment could not keep the ice cold enough.

About 100 residents packed a hearing yesterday and cheered when the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission denied a site plan for a 254-unit apartment complex in Eldersburg. County Commissioner Julia Walsh Gouge, who serves on the planning board, said crowded schools and roads and an inadequate water supply prompted the decision. She added that the strong turnout of those opposed to the complex signaled support for the commissioners' efforts to control growth. "The most important factor is that there are no adequate facilities in this area," she said.

The new owner of a longtime vacant lot located adjacent to the Oakland Mills Village Center plans to build a Dunkin' Donuts and a gas station. The 10,000-square-foot Dunkin' Donuts would be located on Stevens Forest Road between the intersections of Santiago Road and Robert Oliver Place, which runs through the village center. The 1.7-acre lot has been vacant for almost 15 years after a gas station closed in 1999. A series of more ambitious plans --including a a four-story, eco-friendly office building called Meridian Square and a 96-unit apartment building -- have been proposed for the site over the last decade.  According to Nandlal Gevaria, project manager of the site for land owner MKSP LLc, the new development is in the early stages, but could be completed as early as summer 2015.

On the matter of reopening Loch Raven Elementary School and moving the Halstead Academy population to Loch Raven, Baltimore County Superintendent of Schools Dallas Dance has been less than candid about the role that the Loch Raven Village and Knettishall communities and other stakeholders have played in the process ("Loch Raven Village residents protest outside Balto. Co. Board of Education," Nov. 5). Either that or people who advise him have been sloppy with their facts. An Oct. 30 notice on the Baltimore County Public Schools website reads as follows: "After six months of community engagement, Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance will recommend to the Board of Education, at its November 5, 2013, meeting, several proposals to relieve capacity issues in the central areas of Baltimore County.

The plan to redevelop the former site of Anne Arundel Medical Center - the first major residential construction project in Annapolis' historic district in decades - appeared to satisfy the city's Board of Appeals last night. The board expects to meet again to draft and vote on an official opinion on the proposed development. In its discussion last night, the board seemed ready to approve the 114-unit Acton's Landing development of condominium apartments, townhouses and single-family homes, despite opposition by a group of nearby residents who had pushed for fewer homes on the site than proposed by the developer, a limited partnership led by Virginia-based Madison Homes.

Greyhound Lines and the city are focusing on sites along a three-block stretch of Russell Street just south of Ravens Stadium in Southwest Baltimore as the location for a new central bus terminal.

The company's lease on its terminal on West Fayette Street expires in less than three years, and the property's owner, the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, wants to redevelop the site as part of the Westside Renaissance project.

Letter to The Aegis | August 29, 2013
Editor: Recently, the traffic company representing the proposed new Bel Air Walmart responded to the latest Harford County deficiencies of June 7, 2013. They continue to ask that the county approve the site plan. If this group was capable of providing acceptable traffic mitigation plans, one would think they would have already supplied them as requested. It is becoming increasingly apparent that traffic mitigation at the intersections of Routes 924 and 24 with Plumtree Road, Bel Air South Parkway, Wheel Road, Bright Oaks Road, Patterson Mill Road and the proposed Blue Spruce Road is not feasible or possible without compromising the safety of the public and the roadways.
