On Thursday evening, Aug. 5, 2010, Baltimore City’s Planning Commission held a public hearing in the Benton Building, near the City Hall. The matter before the panel is officially known as “The 25th Street Station” project. Wal-Mart, however, will be the biggest tenant in the development. It is looking to open a “93,000-square-foot store,” according to Baltimore Brew’s reporter, Elizabeth Suman. See: BaltimoreBrew. One of the witnesses testifying at the hearing was Brendan Bakowski Coyne, President of Bmore Local, a coalition for Smarter Development. He asked the panel to return an unfavorable recommendation to the City Council on the project. Mr. Coyne, who lives in Charles Village, presented a paper to the Commission, which listed “13 requirements,” that his group was requesting be made part of any legislation dealing with the project, if it passes.
