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.

Either would be great!

Maybe because they are doing construction on the field.

@Heather. "They are unable to see the big picture." = WRONG I am a realist, living inRead Morereal ity, not a dream world full of unicorns, clean energy cars, peace and perfection. "Patrcia may not own the land, but she is wise enough to see a purposeful and productive use" = It is a pipe dream not and is not "wise". It is a very un-realistic use of land to benefit the community as a whole. I would love to live in peace and parks, but its not wonderland, its America full of free market trade. "I believe "You" is a puppet for someone who wants to make comments but does not wish to do so under their own name" = Nope. Highly educated, a realist not a hippy dreamer living in the 1960's, community and state volunteer for many causes, successful and responsible. Btw... "name" never, ever, ever, ever put your Real Name on any blog... do you know how easy it is for a freak, weirdo, hacker or the PC media machine to find your info and ruin your life strictly because you don't say what they like? Lastly Heather, to suggest ignoring someones freedom of speech says a lot for your view of the 1st amendment. I love reading ALL points of view... its called AMERICA and I enjoy many points of view regardless if I don't like them. I will continue to read your views, it healthy to learn what others consider important to them... if I agree good... if not that's fine too.

"You" really over-analyzed my comment, didn't ya?! I will never hide my opinions behindRead Moref ake names... Come find me... then I can exercise my 2nd amendment, if I feel it's necessary ;) Oh and by the way, not "hippie" by any means... just a conservative who was born and raised in the immediate area. Thank you for your commentary and for exercising your 1st amendment... After all... THAT is what makes for good decisions... a DIALOG among people with varied perspectives.. rather than the one-size-fits-all approach to developing pseudo-White Marsh and White Marsh itself... retail, retail, retail, mini-mansions, and then poorly constructed developments scattered in between. Clearly, there is a lot of controversy over this PUD, which clearly deserves community input. I hope to see you soon ;)

I left a reply to "You" but it's been deleted for some reason. Oh well. Come and getRead Moreme... but know that a) I'm no hippie.. very conservative and lived in the area my whole life and b) I am not afraid to exercise my 2nd amendment ;) if I feel my precious life is in danger. Oh, and I was raised to believe that "your name is everything," so I am never afraid nor will I be intimidated NOT to use my name, not even in this evil world. And lastly, while I and others can and may ignore you, this in now way precludes you from exercising your 1st amendment. You can stir up trouble even if you'd like, but I won't be a party to it. Kinda like ignoring the kid in school who hurls insults...he can say those things... but we don't have to "listen" and fall into the trap of hurling insults in return.
