County Council Considers Changes to Route 3 Today


Crofton First
is an organization of concerned citizens in the greater Crofton area who keep their eyes on county zoning and development issues so the rest of us don’t have to.  
 
If we’re going to go about our own business while they’re taking the time to do this for us, the least we can do is listen when Crofton First shares their findings with us.  We owe it to them and ourselves to get involved when push comes to shove (as the saying goes).  One of those moments is NOW!
 
Here’s what’s at stake on Monday, May 2, at the regular meeting of the Anne Arundel County Council:  Council Bill #12–11 allows several “up-zones” in the greater Crofton area –  i.e., re-zoning Residential areas along Route 3 to Commercial.

Can you imagine what 75 acres of new commercial zoning along Route 3 in the greater Crofton area would do to Route 3 traffic?

That’s not all.  The bill also permits additional sand and gravel operations in the middle of the Evergreen residential neighborhood.

Crofton First has done the legwork for residents in the greater Crofton area.  Now it’s up to all the rest of us to email or phone our councilman and/or attend the meeting at Arundel Center on Monday night.  You should be there (44 Calvert St. in Annapolis) by 6:30 to sign up for testifying, or 7 p.m. to attend.  The nearest parking is at Gott’s Garage, which has an entrance on Calvert Street.

If you can’t attend the meeting, please email or phone your councilman, listed below: 

Many thanks to the folks involved in Crofton First for following up on this and letting us know about the May 2 County Council meeting.

 

NOTE:  Due to the urgency of this matter, Margaret’s Monday Morning Market Update for Gambrills, Odenton and Davidsonville will be posted later this week.
