  1. I saw somewhere online that they are planning to sell the land from the RV World place to the old bridge on 144 (a driving range and several of houses are there as well, although I am not sure if there are people living in those houses.) Said they would want to have a shopping center with a movie theater, new homes built and a park near the river. I don’t see any land for sale signs in that area or if the owners of the RV World, driving range and houses, are refusing to move.

    There’s also a land or two for lease/sale right by exit/entrance of i70 to Monocacy Blvd (in between roads 144 and E. South Street (right beside Wendy’s, Sheetz’s, etc…). I wonder what they are planning to do with them. I can’t imagine how crowded it will be if they are going to build something on those lands.


    • The land where RV world and the houses are have been set to be or rumored to be a shopping center and hotel, etc since we moved here in 2004 but we haven’t seen anything about it since, just talk. we thought when they took that big yellow house down that it was the start of something but apparently not because that was a few years ago


  2. I saw where Ruth Chris Steakhouse is applying for a liquor license at 5120 Buckeystown Pike which is where the old Mimi’s restaurant was. Wonder when it will be opening?


  3. I would see this filling a space in Carroll county more than Frederick (both places are mentioned). There have been talks to open a theater in Eldersburg for a long time (since the other theater closed in 2009) and apparently deals have been worked out in an area where they are building a shopping center/restaurant area. I am wondering if this is the company they have been in negotiations with.


  4. It will be interesting if Ruths Chris actually happens. I know there have been rumors of Cheesecake Factory for years and that has never happened.


  5. La Reina (the Peruvian restaurant that was formerly Acacia but still is part of the Fountain Rock restaurant group) is now open. I think they are still in the “soft” opening phase since last night was only the second day they were open. Thought it was just okay but I plan to try it again once they have had a chance to get into their grove.


  6. So nice of the city to pass out parking tickets all week after getting a foot of snow and losing about 1/3 of the parking spots downtown due to the snow. After reading the article in the FNP, I guess it’s the city’s way of making up for the bad budgeting. Mayor McMilktoast does it again.
