STURBRIDGE DEVELOPMENT CO. deserves credit for significantly improving its plans to build the Village at Waugh Chapel in western Anne Arundel County. More work and review is needed before the project receives final approval, but designs for the mixed-use center are looking more like the pedestrian-friendly place that county planners sought -- not the typical, automobile-oriented shopping center originally submitted.The legislation that created a new zoning category called "suburban community center" envisioned this type of a project, as well as the process that is shaping it. The law calls for community participation through a citizens panel and oversight by the county planning department.
