NPC president Harry Wujek has long raised concerns about traffic and crowding issues with a development that size and has said his group could support a development of about 300 units.
The list was provided by NPC president Harry Wujek and vice president Francis Taylor, Harbor Options Team members who pulled their ideas from the North Point Peninsula's community survey results.
"[The Harbor Options Team has] accepted our ideas and will further explore them," Wujek
said Monday."The ball is in their court as to whether they will pursue any of these things."
Many of the projects involve shoreline enhancement.Peninsula residents would like to see more access to the waterfront on the property of the former Fort Howard School
, a promenade along the shoreline of North Point State Park that extends to Millers Island and better storm water management in peninsula neighborhoods , all potential bargaining chips for use with the port, according to Doyle and Wujek
Carroll soon will be invited to another NPC meeting to discuss the possibilities in more detail, Wujek
"I think it's a lot better for the county and the port and the state to come to us and say, 'Hey guys, we're going to have to put this up here someplace; here's a place we think we could put it, and in exchange for that we'll give you something,' rather than them saying to us, 'This is where we're going to put it, and you get nothing," Wujek
Additionally, NPC president Harry Wujek reported, Grasser is making a list of overgrown areas in need of attention and will send it to the Maryland Transportation Authority, where responsible parties for each location will be identified.
"Things are dramatically changing as to what the focus of this project is," Wujek
said, adding that it may not be "economically feasible" for Federal Development
to lease the development's units solely to veterans.

NPC president Harry Wujek was displaced from his Millers Island home for almost a year following Tropical Storm Isabel.
Much like the Learys, Harry Wujek
spent the evening of Sept. 18 watching and waiting.Having lost four vehicles to a flood in 1979, the Millers Island resident anticipated the same with Isabel and moved his
cars to the parking lot at Eastpoint Mall earlier that day.Still, in the company of his
wife and grandchildren, Wujek
was glued to weather reports.
"All we kept hearing was Ocean City, Ocean City, Ocean City," he
said Monday."Nobody was talking about what was happening on the [Chesapeake] Bay."
It didn't take long to find out.When the oncoming storm surge sent a wave through two doors on the front of his
Chesapeake Avenue home, Wujek
moved everyone upstairs and began calling for help, spending a sleepless night in what sounded like a blender, he
Help didn't arrive until the next morning, in the form of a boat manned by a white water rescue team from Montgomery County.The Wujeks' first floor was filled with three feet of water and their pier, shed, boardwalk and pickup truck were destroyed.
With the help of the American Red Cross
, the Wujeks found and rented an apartment in Rosedale while their home underwent major structural repairs - new sheetrock, new floors, new doors and steel supports underneath it all.All the while, Wujek
was fulfilling his
duties as president of the North Point Peninsula Community Coordinating Council
, and other families in crisis were turning to him for help.
"All I could do was give them the benefit of my experience," he
said, admitting to being overwhelmed at times.
If this can even be said, Wujek
in some ways was among the luckier ones.His
home was paid for, he
had a good flood insurance policy on both its structure and contents and what he
called a "decent" insurance adjustor.
