Developer drops plans for Joppa Road child care center

News AlertThe developer of a planned child care center has backed off of the proposal.

Councilman David Marks, who strongly opposed the plan, released the following statement on Wednesday morning:

“I have just been informed that the developer of the proposed day care center at Joppa Road and Kahl Avenue has dropped plans for the project. There will be no hearing on September 25th (2019-0025-XA).

“I would like to thank all those who expressed their opinion about this proposal. I agreed that this was an inappropriate location, and I have encouraged the developer to look elsewhere.

“The zoning here is DR 1H, or one house per acre, which is as low as allowed for residential development. I initiated the downzoning here in 2016.”

The proposal, submitted on behalf of Joppa Road Daycare LLC, included 56 parking spaces , with 24-foot entrances off of Kahl Avenue and Joppa Road.
