Developer Gary Rappaport, who is hoping to attract a Wal-Mart to his aging shopping center in Mount Airy, has become stuck in traffic -- at least for the time being.Told by the town planning commission Monday that his traffic plan for the project is inadequate, Rappaport must scramble to come up with an alternative that will satisfy town officials and undergo scrutiny from state highway authorities.Rappaport warns that the independent traffic study ordered by the commission can delay his plans for a project he says is vital to the health of his shopping center.

Tension between the Cordish Cos., which is planning a large slots parlor at Arundel Mills mall, and neighbors was evident when architects and engineers detailed the planned 200,000-square-foot casino during a presentation Wednesday night. Residents object to the casino in their neighborhood, saying it will worsen existing traffic and crime problems. Cordish says a groundbreaking for the slots parlor is just months away if county and state officials give final approvals for the casino design, which appears likely.

A traffic engineer hired by Granite residents who are trying to scale back plans for a 3,000-seat church in their rural community, testified yesterday that Old Court Road would be overcrowded - by state standards - when the church lets out on Sunday afternoons. C. Edward Walter's testimony contradicted a study presented earlier this week by a traffic engineer hired by Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church. The study concluded that the new sanctuary would not overburden Old Court Road, a two-lane thoroughfare.

After months of study, the city of Annapolis is moving forward with plans to build an often-discussed parking garage on the Inner West Street Corridor. The council voted late Monday night to follow the recommendations of a committee of residents and business owners charged with investigating uses for the garage and business complex at West Street and Colonial Avenue. The 11-member committee made its presentation at the council's regular meeting. Based on the group's plan, the city will soon begin accepting proposals to rehabilitate the five 100-year-old buildings at the site for small-scale retail and private development.
