Save endangered dragonfly & historic town- deny Mill high density zoning

    1. Petition by

      Savage Community Association

The parcel is completely surrounded by parkland and sits atop steep slopes next to the Little Patuxent River. It is only accessible through a single entry point at the end of an established, historic neighborhood. It's negative impact on the neighborhood and the watershed makes it unsuited for the existing B-2 or for R-A-15 use. Ideally, the County should acquire the property to remain wooded parkland in order to save the endangered Snaketail dragonfly which resides there, as well as to preserve the view shed of both the park and the historic district. If that is not feasible, we urge Howard County to return the property to R-20 or another lower density classification that is appropriate for our community.

      Savage is quaint, historic town with traffic problems as it is. This area is already surrounded by high density housing and does not need any more. Additionally, developing this area will further diminish the attractiveness of the Savage Mill area and endanger the Snaketail Dragonfly that lives in this area.

      I grew up there. The river was my stomping ground growing up. Maryland is way too overdeveloped.

      This area is too overcrowded. The schools and streets can not handle the additional homes being added. The property would better serve the community if it becomes additional wooded parkland.
