Alternative development technique brings controversy in Balto. Co.
Behind the asphalt parking lot at Dimitri's International Grille in Catonsville, the wooded area drops about 30 feet in a steep slope in one direction, adjoining Patapsco Valley State Park on two sides. The restaurant's owner wants to build 10 townhouses there, though zoning doesn't allow it and the Baltimore County planning staff has strongly recommended against it.
