It will be Soukup Arena, for the Perry Hall Rec Council.

That is going to be a more crazy intersection for driving now. Narrow lanes, blind spots galore and Read Morespeeders on Joppa Rd already. I wonder if they plan on expanding the lane sizes or a 4 way stop? Also they are required to have sidewalks now if its a "center for the public or a business". Hum....

In community meetings prior to the final plans, traffic was a top concern from the locals, not only Read Moreconsidering that the site was not originally planned to have a parking lot of this size, but also in consideration of the 39 new homes at Cross Rd. & Chapel. Sidewalks were another top-level item, and it was agreed to put a sidewalk between the park and Joppa Rd. However, a sidewalk to Honeygo Blvd. is not included in the project. Councilman Marks has mentioned that intersection improvements for the west side of the Joppa/Honeygo intersection are in the original plans for the Honeygo community, but are not currently funded. A trip generation study was requested, but there is no word if/when that will be conducted. This arena is within the Honeygo Overlay, but the lack of a sidewalk from Honeygo Blvd. to it creates a level of isolation of it from the rest of Honeygo (not to mention the increased danger for pedestrians with the increased traffic.) Councilman Marks is aware of the concerns; I think he needs some encouragement from others in the community to have these things investigated. County Executive Kamenetz may also respond to community input as the General Election draws near.

This is not a "shopping center". This is 88 acres of land that will be developed. Look at Read Morewhat goes on at and around Arundel Mills...is that the kind of area where you want to live? Who cares if the infrastructure cannot handle the increased traffic and the police are too understaffed to ensure public safety? As long as there's a Wegmans. SMH. You know what will happen? Everyone will go to the one in Abingdon because it will take less time to get there and be a safer environment.

@ Teresa Kurtz, the “currently approved” PUD does include 1250 residential units andRead Morewas approved in 2008. It would seem that such a large increase in residences would almost force the county to build a new middle school and high school, schools for which the community has seen the need since the 1980’s. The proposed changes were deemed as “major” by the county council, and since many regulations related to wetlands and waterways have been upgraded since 2008, many in the community feel that this PUD should be started over from scratch. The development of this property as an outlet mall with hotels and a 5-story car garage as well as numerous huge parking lots will cause irreversibly negative effects on the immediately surrounding community with little to no benefit to the same community. According to testimony presented by the developer at the 6/9/14 hearing, storm water management plans for the “outlet mall” are based on 1999 regulations. What impact could this have for waterfront homeowners along Bird River, not to mention the waterways and waterfowl in the area? Too much has changed since 2008 for this not to go “back to the drawing board.” If the 1250 residential units were profitable for the developer and didn’t necessitate the county providing new schools, don’t you think it would have already been built? There are better and smarter uses for this property, and whether or not these options are explored or not, the proposed outlet mall is not good for the community. I guess THAT is the “big deal.”

Why are people talking about a Wegman's? This is going to be an Outlet Center, hotels, parkingRead Moregarag e, and apartments. A Wegman's isn't in the plan.
