Just look at some of the proposals approved by the Department of Zoning: Maple Lawn in Fulton with over 1,200 apartment units (Howard County Times, April 11), Route 1 in North Laurel, Savage, Cooksville, and Elkridge, etc. These comprehensive rezoning proposals, plus the immense amount of in-fill construction and the ongoing proposed developments, clearly depict our county's vision is all about "cents" vs. "sense." North Laurel is facing an increase of over 6,000 additional residents. If the additional development in Maple Lawn is approved, combined with the ongoing and future developments in North Laurel, this will total an additional 10,000 new residents in the southeast corridor.
