Save Arden

From Catonsville historian, Marsha Wight Wise, via email:

Hi! I read your Sam’s Bagels blog often. Keep up the good work. I love reading about my friends the Titsworths!

I would like to ask you to post something on your blog. As you may be aware there are a group of people trying to save the old Bloede property in Catonsville at the dead end of Forest Avenue, Arden, from the wrecking ball. We are in no way opposed to the PUD but would like to see the developer incorporate Arden in his plans. We have been successful in getting the preliminary Historic Landmark status in January by the Baltimore County Landmarks Preservation Commission.
The Baltimore County Council held a public hearing on July 7th.

The Council will vote on Arden’s final Landmark status on July 29th. We need Catonsville to write Councilman Sam Moxley, and the rest of the Council members, to voice their opinion on the necessity of preserving Arden. We need to urge Councilman Moxley to draft a bill placing Arden into permanent History Landmark status.

To read all about Arden and to see the photos go to our blog at:

Marsha- What is PUD? also do you have a link to ecomments for those you want us to contact. I do not see it either on your blog or this post.

Hi, Sue! Sorry, a PUD is a Planned Unit Development. In this world of 'alphabet soup' acronyms we tend to forget they actually represent words!

There is a link to Moxley's webpage under the "links" and a link to the councilmembers if you click on the word.

Thanks for posting to you site for me.
