Don't build on Perryman farmland [Letter]

The desecration of the pristine farmland to build another industrial site by a development company (or should that be un-development company?) is sad ("2 large buildings planned in Perryman industrial area," March 4).

There are just too many industrial sites and shopping malls. The project should be stopped and the land use remain the same. The accompanying photo is a good example why Gov. Martin O'Malley's "rain" tax is good and necessary in curtailing the excessive water runoff in Maryland. Is the public aware of the fact that in at least one state it is illegal for runoff rainwater to enter the streets and owners of the offending property are fined heavily should they be caught?
