Board of Appeals Overturns Special Exception for Megachurch on Shawan!

GOOD NEWS! The Baltimore County Board of Appeals decided last week to overturn the special exception regarding the Hunt Valley Baptist Church on Shawan Road. This is a huge victory for the community who worked tirelessly with VPC to oppose the proposed 30,000 square foot mage church on the RC 4 (Resource Conservation/Watershed Protection) zoned property.  We are grateful to our members and friends who provided financial support, attended hearings, testified and/or helped to successfully fight this large scale institutional use in the rural area. Special thanks to our legal team, Micheal McCann, Bill Marlow and Trit Farley, and to the expert witnesses who provided testimony during the 7 days of hearings.  Congratulations! This scenic property is saved! Next, we need to convince Councilman Wade Kach not to change the zoning. THANK YOU for your ongoing support of VPC!
