Speaking of Martin's, does FACC President Ellen Dix work there or have an active interest in the store? I was reading this article when looking for an update to the proposal. It seems like she REALLY likes Martin's and decries the need for a Royal Farms by saying that Martin's is good enough, why would anyone want to go to Royal Farms? It's a hollow argument full of meaningless echoes.
I've lived in Eldersburg for 13 years and in that entire time no business has ever been open on that corner. When we moved here the abandoned Korner Karry Out and Milt's Liquor store had the monopoly on local eye sore. That award was quickly transferred to Carrolltown Center when the KKO and ML were demolished. Since then the abandoned lot has been sufficiently protected by an equally unattractive big chain link fence. Why does this land need a fence? Are they afraid the dog will run out into the road?
So, blog world, do you have any information on the status of this corner? I'm hoping that my grandchildren will get to see a tax-generating business that provides something to the local community. Perhaps they're waiting for Martin O'Malley to leave office.
