Our Mission

Save Lake Roland (SLR) is an organization dedicated to preventing irresponsible development and the loss of open space in the neighborhoods surrounding Lake Roland Park. Currently, our most pressing initiative is opposing a high-density development project - 55,000+ sf of commercial space, 155 rental apartments, 7 buildings total, several of which will be 6 stories, on 6 acres abutting Lake Roland. Bluestem, previously known as The Village of Lake Roland, is planned for the intersection of Falls and Clarkview Roads, 6241 through 6247 Falls Road.

The final project design is now before the Administrative Law Judge. Next hearing dates June 4 and 13. Despite some superficial modifications in the design, we remain opposed because the density and height of buildings remains far too high; the impact on the traffic, the sewer and the Park and Lake will be significant.
