Community leaders opposed to a mixed-use development near Lake Roland scored a symbolic victory last night when hundreds of residents showed up at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Ruxton to voice their opposition to the project.

The Village of Lake Roland, a six-acre proposed development at 6241-47 Falls Road that includes a six-story apartment building, retail space, restaurants, office space and parking in the Bare Hills neighborhood, has been brought forward by Vanguard Development, which bought the land for $4.25 million early last year.

Residents expressed concern about the development infringing on the beauty and tranquility of Lake Roland, increasing traffic on Falls Road, straining water and sewage systems and more. Hollins Organic and assorted small office buildings currently sit on the parcel.
