The shouting over a bid to turn 682 acres of Howard County farmland into the Waverly Woods development began this week before the county zoning board. Despite vociferous opposition, the weight of reason falls squarely in favor of this proposal to blend light industry, shopping and a golf course with a cohesive mix of apartments, town homes and single-family dwellings.Not surprisingly, the plan has met with loud cries from no-growth advocates, who scream about overcrowded schools and overburdened thoroughfares.

When you enter Julie Chang's world languages class at Waverly Elementary School in Ellicott City, you leave English at the door. Then, if you know the answer to a question and are told to " qing ju shou ," you raise your hand. If you're told, " bu shou hua ," then you must keep quiet. And if someone asks about the weather and it's sunny outside, you say, " yin tian . " Chang teaches Chinese, one of two languages offered in the Howard County school system's world languages pilot, which is in its second year at Laurel Woods and Waverly elementary schools.

Reuwer Jr. has done, but what he wants to do: develop a business, residential and golfing village on 682 adjoining acres during the next 20 years."We're not against growth," says Stough, chairman of a 2-month-old group called Citizens Allied for Rational Expansion.

Howard County's zoning board has dealt a stinging defeat to no-growth forces in the county by approving plans for Waverly Woods II, a 682-acre commercial, residential and golfing village straddling Marriottsville and Woodstock.The fact that the board softened the blow -- by slashing 41 percent of the office space that can be built on the property -- should not obscure the fact that the county as a whole can claim a significant victory here . . . at least for now.By holding their punches and offering a compromise to opponents of this project, the zoning board went about as far as compassion and common sense would allow.
