A decision on a proposed 302-home development on Contee Road was tabled by the city of Laurel Planning Commission during its May meeting, as the commission’s staff had not yet completed their report. The development was proposed to the city by the Pulte Home Company.

Public comments were still accepted, however, during the public hearing, and several people spoke in opposition to the development. Multiple concerns, including traffic congestion, stormwater runoff and the potential for over-crowded schools, were expressed as well as concerns about the loss of open space and wildlife habitat.

The planning commission’s next meeting is scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. on June 11 at the Municipal Center, 8103 Sandy Spring Road.
