Kittleman: when I was on the zoning board, I voted against Maple Lawn. We have to increase our commercial tax base, not more residential density. Debate

You were wrong. How do you increase commercial tax base while at the same time limiting demand (ie. residents)? Maple Lawn now provides tens of millions in taxes, is a vibrant community, and houses people who deeply contribute to Howard County.

Yes but Maple Lawn is out of control... schools traffic and so much congestion the traffic circles are like Mad Max. The Iaegers sold the entire area out. The water tower doesn’t even say Fulton .... it’s a mess ... no it’s not a vibrant community

You are objectively wrong and you can’t say that it’s not vibrant at the same time you say there are too many people. The traffic circles work well, big deal about the water tower, and the schools are all high performing.

I agree to disagree with you .. no they don’t work well and traffic accidents are becoming more frequent... no this is Fulton and not Maple Lawn . No Reservoir High is not as high performing as ex River Hill ... yes the others are doing well ..

The impact on county resources such as schools roads by aggressive housing developments must be moderated through zoning and permits until the load can be handled

Btw Tzuk you didn’t answer how long have you been here in HoCo much less Maple Lawn? Other than Looneys and Harris Teeter there isn’t much happening.. just a bedroom community with some fireworks

I was born in Howard County in 1975, lived here my entire life but college. I am 43 years old. So that is 39 years in Howard County, a county that had a population of 50,000 when I was born. Were you here then?

Of years have seen the overbuilding as a problem... the circles are so dangerous and we have almost been hit twice.. the fireworks were fun but now it lost its community feeling

I’m not here to argue... it just should have been more thoughtfully planned not the cluster it has become... we will be moving on but it really doesn’t have a community feeling anymore

I live in Maple Lawn. I grew up in Columbia. Maple Lawn had what we wanted- community feel, new homes, walkability and the ability to get to DC w/o spending an extra 15 minutes on 29. I was also Planning Board Chair for 5 years and have been involed in HoCO all my life.

To each their own. I'm not going to argue either. But I think the parade of horribles that people assumed have not come to pass. In fact it is a economic center of the county. We are high income county between two large cities. We should not aspire to be a rural crossroads.

Ok I thought you had more than a casual interest in it... it’s personal for you... I can guarantee that us oldsters have hated to see the over development but if that is what your generation wants then you have it... areas don’t always stay shiny and new .... crime

You know, there is less crime now...in actual numbers, not per capita...in Howard County than there was in the 1970s. We live in an unbelievably safe community. Imagine, less crime in a county of 320,000 people than when there was less than 100,000. Hard to believe, but true.

I agree with what you stay. I love crossing into Howard. It is home.... but in the other neighborhoods not Maple Lawn maybe breaking and entry has become a real issue and it’s not getting any better...

Not sure this was a good choice of tweets to “promote.” Odd to be bragging about voting against a couple hundred more high six figure and millionaire families in your county. I’d delete this if I were you.
