3P Protect Perryman Peninsula Files Lawsuit
On April 24, 2023, 3P announced its decision to voluntarily dismiss its ongoing legal case against Harford County. This decision comes in response to the new administration led by County Executive Bob Cassilly, which appears to be shifting its stance on the controversial CREG/Mitchell freight terminal project.
On February 1, 2023, an amended complaint was filed in the Circuit Court for Harford County. The amended complaint added defendant Charles Maslin who owns the property the developer plans to use for project ingress and egress. The complaint also adds language to incorporate the latest round of plans submitted by the developer which escalate the intensity of the project. Finally, the amended complaint adds facts to support plaintiff claims for damages.
On June 7, 2022, 3P Protect Perryman Peninsula, LLC. along with 6 other plaintiffs brought suit against F.O. Mitchell & Bro. Inc., Chesapeake Real Estate Group LLC, Frederick Ward Associates Inc. and Harford County, Maryland.
Citing plans for an illegal freight terminal 3P and the other named plaintiffs have brought suit alleging an inexplicable violation of Harford County zoning laws in addition to both public and private nuisance. The lawsuit, filed in Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County comes after nearly six months of working unsuccessfully with both the Glassman administration in the Harford County Executive Branch and the Harford County Councilmen Pat Vincenti and Curtis Beulah in the Legislative Branch. The lawsuit seeks to save the property values and protect the ownership interests of the other 1200 people who live on the peninsula with the Mitchells.
