Staples Corner Public Hearing — ALERT !!

    The Anne Arundel County Office of Planning will hold a public hearing on their ideas for redeveloping Staples Corner (at Md. routes 424 and 450) this Wednesday, June 18, at 7 pm at Crofton Middle School.  The announcement reads: 

Public Meeting Scheduled

Annapolis, MD (June 6, 2008) - - The Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning, Long Range Planning Division is beginning work on an Urban Design Study for the Staples Corner area in Crofton. The purpose of the study is to develop a concept plan to enhance the commercial area, create a local activity hub or village center, improve traffic flow, and create an attractive gateway to Crofton.

Input from property owners in the study area as well as local community representatives will be valuable to the process, and we encourage everyone to attend and share their ideas for a creative plan for the area.

WHEN: June 18, 2008 at 7:00 pm

WHERE: Crofton Middle School

2301 Davidsonville Road

Crofton, Maryland 21114

For more information, please contact Lynn Miller at 410-222-7432.

Individuals needing special accommodations must communicate with the contact person at least 7 working days prior to the meeting at the appropriate number, or by e-mail or through the Maryland Relay Service at 7-1-1. All materials are available in an alternative format upon request.

   I have no idea if our HWPOA directors plan to represent our interests at this meeting, but I urge each of you to show up. There's no telling what proposals may come up – huge office buildings, a traffic circle/roundabout...who knows? – but this is one we need to keep an eye on.
