Kent Island, MD. Court Upholds No Sewer Decision, Wal-Mart proposal sinks.

A resident's committee in Kent Island, Maryland (Stevensville) in Queen Anne's county called Up Against the WAL has finally poked a hole in Wal-Mart's efforts to build a story at one end of the four mile Cheasapeake Bay Bridge. And it all came down to a sewer connection. Here is the latest update from local sprawl-busters Stan Ruddie: "By Order dated September 12, 2002, the Maryland Court of Appeals denied
the Petition for Writ of Certiorari filed by Petrie, Dierman, Kughn (the
developer of the Kent Island Commons site). The effect of the ruling is essentially the end of the case. That is, the Queen Anne County Commissioners (sitting as the Sanitary Commission)
were vindicated and sustained in their denial of the requested sewer allocation for the proposed Wal-Mart.Therefore neither the Wal-Mart nor any other component of the proposed development can be built.Any proposed future development of this property will require a new application and regulatory review process. This should be an extremely satisfying conclusion for the many who have been concerned about the potential negative effects of the proposed Kent Island Commons development and its incompatibility with the Queen Anne County land use ordinances."

What you can do: This battle began in April of 1999, and lasted until September of 2002. For more background on how the "Kent Island Commons" was defeated, search this website by "Kent Island" or "Stevensville". See also the recap of the case dated June 17, 2002.
