The OCA board has learned that 7-11 and the developer behind the 7-11 gas station and convenience store proposed for the corner of Belair Rd. and Fullerton Ave. have decided NOT to appeal the administrative ruling that denied all the requested special exceptions.
As far as we are aware, the project will not move forward.
THANK YOU to all the Overlea and Linover residents who shared their concerns and testimony, whether written or in person. Your involvement is crucial as together we advocate for sustainable development and improvements in our community.
CALL TO ACTION: URGENT Community Input needed! 7-11 Plan for Fullerton Ave. & Belair Rd.
The plans for 7-11 to build a gas station and convenience store at the corner of Fullerton and Belair Road is now moving forward with a virtual hearing on Monday June 13th at 10 a.m.
Register to testify– We are asking all willing community members to please testify on the safety and traffic impacts another large gas station will have on our community. YOU MUST REGISTER AHEAD OF TIME IN ORDER TO TESTIFY.
The Overlea Community Association does not support this 7-11 or the requests for variances and will provide strong testimony at the hearing stating so. We have serious concerns about the safety and traffic impacts of such a large store at this failing intersection .
The site is zoned for this use, so the plans may move forward by right. However, zoning variances must be approved, including a special exception to use the property as a fuel station.
What can you do?
Attend the meeting and express your objections. Please share your concerns—especially about safety and traffic issues. Talking points can include:
- Increased traffic at an already dangerous intersection.
- Safety concerns for schoolchildren and other pedestrians.
- Increased congestion at peak times.
If you cannot attend the virtual hearing and testify, you may submit written testimony ASAP by email to: email@example.com
Include Case number 2021-0269 SPHXA, your name and address.
If you have questions, call the Administrative Hearing office at 410-887-3868 x0

Please do not miss this chance to VOICE YOUR OPINION.
Thank you for your commitment to our community.
