On Facebook, commenters seemed to be of the same mind, saying the property owner should pack up, or clean the site up.
One of the more popular stories on Severna Park Patch last week was a photo gallery of a controversial fenced-in property alongside Ritchie Highway. The site is often used to sell flowers and Christmas trees, but right now it is not being operated and instead is used to house used furniture. In January, the property's owner Donna Marsh was issued a citation for operating a flea market on the land in violation of county zoning laws. On Facebook, commenters seemed to be of the same mind, saying the property owner should pack up, or clean the site up. Ellen McCourt Scarano: "I doubt the quality of the furniture is very good. I'd prefer the flower stand. It's my prettiest memory of my first days living in this area." Cathy Benjamin Pette: "…

In January, Marsh was issued a citation for operating an outdoor flea market on the property in violation of local zoning laws, according to online court records. A month later, there has been no change to the property. What do you think should be done on this …

On Monday crews were working at the intersection of Ritchie Highway and McKinsey Road.
An effort to increase pedestrian safety along Ritchie Highway was continuing to cause traffic delays Monday morning.

A lane on Route 2 northbound was closed Wednesday while crews worked on building a sidewalk.
Those traveling along Ritchie Highway in Severna Park may have noticed a lane closed today. The closure was so crews could add sidewalks along Route 2.

If you've been missing chicken since the KFC closed, you will be happy with this news of a new restaurant expected to come to that location.
After months of speculation, guessing and predictions by curious Severna Park residents about what will become of the former KFC location, the answer has arrived.
