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 project (including a six-story, 152-unit apartment building, and 55,000+ sf commercial in 7 buildings all on 6 acres) proposed for development on the edge of Park land. Bluestem, previously known as The Village of Lake Roland, is a Vanguard development. The final project design was recently submitted to the County. 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.
