2018, April 11

At the OCGS Annual Meeting held on this date, Jennifer Langford, representing Bozzuto Homes, presented plans to develop the easternmost Hidden Water acreage as presented at a Baltimore County Concept Plan Conference on April 10th. Bozzuto is planning to develop this property with 24 single family homes as permitted under current DR1 zoning. Each house will be configured differently, and properties will vary from about 1/2 acre to almost 1 acre in size. The new development will not be gated. Bozzuto prefers to use the existing gravel path as its entrance / egress for the development with no plans to connect to Eden Roc Way. The Baltimore County Planning Department has asked that the plans be reconfigured so that no backyards are facing Old Court Road. They have also asked to have the entrance to the development moved to be directly across from Paladia Way, and they have asked that Eden Roc Way be connected to a road within the new development. The rear of the property will remain undeveloped.

Discussion following this presentation made the following points:
Existing neighbors do not object to houses backing up to Old Court Road if they are sited far enough away to be unseen from the road as requested by Bozzuto Homes.

Existing neighbors do NOT want Eden Roc Way connected to any roads within the new development, both for safety and aesthetic reasons.
Existing neighbors do not want the entrance / egress road to the new development sited across from Paladia Way and very much prefer that the existing entrance road to the property be used as requested by Bozzuto.

It was agreed that OCGS send a letter in support of the Bozzuto plans as presented at this meeting to Baltimore County Planning Department Head Andrea Van Arsdale with copies to Councilwoman Vicki Almond and Jeff Mahew, Baltimore County Department of Planning. A copy of this letter appears below.
