Traf­fic al­ready clog­ging KI roads

Record Observer - - Opinion - Stevensville

Joe Stevens, le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tive for K. Hov­na­nian’s Four Sea­sons project at Dr. Ben­ton’s old farm on Cas­tle Marina Road, said “Hov­na­nian be­lieves very lit­tle has changed” in the decade plus since the project was ap­proved. (Bay Times, July 6)

Where have you been Joe? Have you tried to drive from the Safe­way to the Do­min­ion Road stop light on a Fri­day, Satur­day or Sun­day? Have you tried to get from Ch­ester’s over­pass through Stevensville on a week­end? All but im­pos­si­ble!

Be­tween or­di­nary traf­fic and the fa­mous “Reach the Beach­ers” clog­ging our county roads, Kent Towne Mar­ket’s park­ing lots re­peat­edly fill and feed into Ch­ester’s sin­gle lane Main St. all week­end and of­ten into the week, es­pe­cially at lunchtime. Queen Anne’s County plan­ning for traf­fic in­fra­struc­ture for all Kent Is­land’s re­cent growth has been dis­mally ne­glected.

How­ever, Joe, you think “noth­ing has changed” since 2005? Wake up, man — your client rep­re­sents the prover­bial “gaso­line poured on (lo­cal traf­fic) fire” with the ad­di­tional traf­fic growth ex­pected by Hov­na­nian’s Four Sea­sons.
