Baltimore County Councilwoman Cathy Bevins is attempting another land-grab that will favor developers.

Bevins, a Democrat representing the 6th District of Baltimore County, is attempting to introduce legislation that will change the existing comprehensive zoning regulations.

According to an online petition, Bevins’ move will drastically alter the landscape of the Middle River community.

This latest attempt by Mrs. Bevins to grant benefits to developers in her district is receiving strong pushback from the community.

The following is a quote from the online petition:

This bill will allow for properties such as office buildings, large apartment complexes, and other commercial properties to be constructed in the middle of residential neighborhoods. Bills like this will continue to add to the heavy traffic that we are experiencing in Baltimore County and will continue to place additional strains on our infrastructure.

This is not the first controversial incident involving the Middle River councilwoman.

Here is a copy of the community petition against the legislation (45-19) proposed by Councilwoman Cathy Bevins.
