Some residents complain that the proposal is being rushed to benefit one developer. ... "They obviously do not want public input," said Jacqueline Grazette, who lives near the site of Karington, a massive project proposed near the intersection of Routes 301 and 214 in Bowie that would benefit from the legislation.
Grazette predicts that Karington will place additional burdens on the surrounding roads and school system. She notes that the construction of a major project far from rail transit goes against a renewed effort in the county to develop around Metro stations.
