A Howard County judge has ruled that the county elections board properly followed state law when disqualifying names on petitions that sought to block a supermarket that critics said would be too large. Judge Timothy J. McCrone ruled late Monday that the board acted in accordance with Maryland law when it declared the drive to block the Turf Valley market dead on March 12, 2009. The elections board had decided earlier that a first batch of 2,603 names was sufficient to allow the campaign against a zoning change to proceed.

Opponents of a large supermarket at a proposed Turf Valley shopping center in Ellicott City lost another court challenge in their two-year effort to revive a petition drive that sought to put the project's zoning approval on a Howard County election ballot. The 4th U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., upheld Monday an earlier U.S. District Court dismissal of a constitutional argument brought by Paul Kendall. The appeals court ruled there are no federal constitutional issues involved in the case.

The Turf Valley golf club and resort in Ellicott City won approval this week for extended hours for alcohol sales. The resort will have a country club license once the legal papers are signed, said Howard County liquor board administrator Denise King, which allows establishments to begin serving at 6 a.m. Its existing golf club liquor license has more limited hours for serving alcohol. The change comes as the Howard County legislative delegation is considering proposing a bill in the General Assembly to extend sale hours for alcohol under a golf course liquor license to hours nearly identical to those under the country club license.

In the never-ending tug-of-war over Turf Valley, another appeal has been filed in hopes of slowing, if not halting, expansion of the planned community. The latest appeal is of a state permit affecting less than an acre of nontidal wetlands. It was filed Tuesday, four days after an appeal and lawsuit were filed challenging the county's approval of plans to enlarge Turf Valley by 119 acres and construct an additional 267 housing units. The Maryland Department of the Environment issued the wetlands permit, almost a year after holding hearings on the matter in conjunction with the Army Corps of Engineers.

The Department of Planning and Zoning has modified a policy that required the public to file a Freedom of Information Act request when seeking information or access to files regarding Turf Valley, the planned community in western Ellicott City. Marsha S. McLaughlin, director of the department, said instead the public need only to make an appointment with her administrative aide to review the files or obtain copies of documents. "My intent is to ensure that you and other members of the public have full access to all available information about the various Turf Valley files, in a manner that allows us to ensure the integrity of the files, provides you with accurate responses to any questions, and minimizes the demand on DPZ staff resources, which are already stretched to meet their many responsibilities," McLaughlin said in an e-mail to Marc Norman, a critic of the planned expansion of Turf Valley.
