BERLIN – A local developer has abandoned plans to turn the former Pine Shore Golf property on Route 611 into a campground.
Developer Todd Burbage confirmed Tuesday he has pulled his campground plans and now intends to build his family home on the property along Ayres Creek. Area property owners who objected to the proposal are elated.
“We look forward to having Todd and his family as a neighbor,” neighborhood resident Donald Bounds said.
Burbage said he plans now to donate a conservation easement on the property to the Lower Shore Land Trust or the Maryland Environmental Trust. He will seek a rezoning of the existing Maryland Coastal Bays Program office property (former Pine Shore Golf clubhouse) to a B-2 classification so he can rent the property to a commercial enterprise in the future if need be.
