Service Station Planned for Lansdowne

A hearing for the new gas station and carry-out convenience store on the 3600 block of Washington Blvd. is scheduled for Sept. 5.

Developers plan to build a new gas station-with a convenience store that prepares carry-out food-on the 3600 block of Washington Blvd. in Lansdowne.

On a parcel of undeveloped property in front of Home Depot and adjacent to the Beltway Motel, a public notice has been posted for a Baltimore County Zoning Board to allow a variance for the project.

According to zoning board officials, the developer is asking to create a landscaped barrier that is five feet wide rather than six feet wide as required by code.

Zoning board officials were unable to identify the prospective tenant that would occupy the property if it is developed.

According to plans submitted to the county, the gas station would have a convenience store larger than 1,500 square feet, and a carry-out restaurant.

The hearing for the zoning variance is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 10 a.m. in room 104 of the Jefferson Building at 105 West Chesapeake Ave. in Towson.

I wonder if when they were scouting in the area they noticed the riff-raff that will be hanging out outside the establishment. Why would Target or Kohls want to come to the area and have to deal with the people that Walmart is drawing. When I shop at Home Depot or Walmart I go right on past Washington Blvd and head to Glen Burnie. I am sick of the trash and filth in the Walmart parking lot and the beggars at the red lights. Thank heaven I don't have to travel the Blvd and see it every day.

It is not needed. Why not just develop the abandoned gas station at Wash. Blvd. and Sulphur Spring Rd?

Agree with you CAW - The entire area has went downhill since the Walmart opened. I also will not shop at that center -
