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

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.
