Anyone who uses the Patuxent Branch Trail has noticed the change at the Iron Bridge section recently. I was unaware of what was going on but apparently a public storage facility is planned where the old stone home once stood. Traffic getting to the facility will use the road that is now shared by people using the Trail. There is a meeting tonight to address how this will impact this section of the Trail.
The public, as well as the Howard County Council and the CA, was not required to be notified of this development. We would like to understand the decision making and processes followed to date and ensure public notification for all developments - especially those in historic districts. Most importantly we would like the entrance to the facility to be on the mail Guilford Road to to preserve the integrity of the Patuxent Branch Trail.
It is our understanding that the developer as well as representatives from CA and HoCo government will be present. Please attend this meeting and get your questions answered and let your voices be heard."
