Perry Hall Improvement Association

Comments to County Council members on Bill 53-15

Zoning Regulations – Regional Outlet Malls


Dear Councilman/ Councilwoman - The Perry Hall Improvement Association Board has reviewed Bill 53-15, Zoning Regulations - Regional Outlet Shopping Center. Based upon the review of the bill and discussion among the board members, the PHIA respectfully provides the following comments.

  1. The PHIA supports the development of the Paragon regional outlet mall in lieu of the PUD
       previously approved and adopted by the County, including improvements to the existing

       road network and infrastructure.

  2. The PHIA is a strong supporter of the Planned Unit Development process and the

      Comprehensive Zoning Map process as they allow for enhanced community input and  

      participation and require close working with the elected Council person.

  3. The PHIA understands the impetus behind the creation of Bill 53-15, and understands the

      strict requirements placed within the bill. The PHIA, however does not support the bill

      circumventing the existing PUD process.

Thank you for your consideration.

Members of the PHIA Board:

   Jack Amrhein

   Pat Keller

   Carrie Flora

   Tom Benisch
