Development Rumors

Hawker took a walk tonight after the rain, in the dark of the evening, and everything seemed so quiet, and most every house was decked out in Halloween pride that Hawker, for one, felt such love for Hampden that my heart grew like the Grinch!

Then, there's these thoughts from a tipster:

Regardless of what you may have heard, lots o' folks are under the impression that The Rotunda project still is happening. Rumor has it now that development should start in April 2008, but (no surprise,) there are still (thankfully) wrenches in that plan.

Traffic considerations in that area are, of course, huge. The rumor is that businesses on the north side of Falls & 41st and the south side of Roland & 40th may be taken by eminent domain. Also, rumors say that a block on Elm near the Rotunda will be closed to ALL traffic. This of course means, you could live on Elm, but you won't be able to park there.

Oh, and if that doesn't make you nervous, how about this rumor: Baltimore City has been privatizing a lot of its parks, and there's some thought that Roosevelt Park may go up for sale.

Please let this all just be rumors. I rent a place across from Roosevelt Park and am hoping to buy next year, but not if anything happens to the park. I wouldn't be opposed to an improvement to the Falls/41st intersection, but hopefully it can be widened without taking down any businesses.

At the moment, this is indeed just a rumor. Hawker hopes it stays that way!
