Hmson Growth freeze passed Limits shore development By CHRISTINE NEUBERGER Staff Writer Despite the protests of homebuild- the County Council as expected imposed an eight-month moratorium yesterday on new waterfront devel- opment. The ban would delay review of most new building plans while the county prepares to meet state regu- lations for development along its shoreline. Taking effect when signed by the county the moratorium bUl is retroactive to April 21 and effective until Jan. Approval of the countywide freeze puts Anne Arundel County in the company of two other Maryland jurisdictions Queen Anne's and Talbot counties that have tempor- arily banned development in critical areas within feet of the Chesa- peake Bay and its tributaries. The seven-member council voted to adopt the moratorium unanimous- after County Councilman Edward C. Ahern announced he had dropped plans to amend it. But said he will instead seek a ban on new building permits along the Fort Smallwood Road corridor in an ef- fort to stop an approved waterfront subdivision. The newly adopted moratorium means that applications for new rezonings and special exceptions along the county shore- line will not be reviewed by the county until next year. The exceptions are applications that are already in the county those that apply to only one lot and those that call for a maximum density of one unit per 20 acres. The moratorium drew objections during a hearing Monday from local homebuilders who are convinced the restriction would hurt them finan- as well as from others in the real estate and business communi- ties who called it unnecessary. you impose new rules there's bound to be someone caught in the system.
