HOWARD COUNTY, Maryland: Howard County residents are in a tussle with a proposition for a full-size supermarket at Ellicott City’s Turf Valley, an 809-acre golf course and resort that is currently under development. Residents are concerned after the Howard County Council granted approval for zoning.[1]

The lawsuit challenges the interpretation of the state’s rules for signatures on petitions that, according to residents, make it impossible to place a referendum before voters. The referendum that residents seek would block the construction of the supermarket.
