A group formed to oppose the redevelopment of the Spring Grove Hospital Center has a new target—Councilman Todd Huff.
In a recently posted video, the group calling itself Catonsville Promenot criticizes the Timonium Republican for zoning changes that "upzoned 1,000 acres" of land as part of the comprehensive zoning map process completed in August.
The changes, according to the group's nearly three-minute video, could affect water quality for nearly 1.8 million residents of central Maryland.
"What's the moral of our story?" the video asks. "Is it that that Todd Huff is reckless and dangerous? Is it that the development mafia has hijacked the county? Although plausible, the real lesson is: if you value things like clean drinking water, you must understand that responsible land use isn't a partisan issue."
Huff isn't the first councilman to come under fire from the group.
In June, the group posted a video focusing on the relationship between Catonsville Democratic Councilman Tom Quirk and developer Steve Whalen. The video also highlighted campaign contributions made to a number of elected officials including County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Dels. Steve DeBoy and Jim Malone.
The group alleges that the money from Whalen and people and businesses associated with the Catonsville developer are tilting the process unfairly in favor of more development over open space and ball fields.
