I’ve watched the rancor flag unfurl over Annapolis since I wrote about plans by an environmental group to put up an office building at a popular park. On Sunday night, the Chesapeake Conservancy capitulated. “In consultation with the Earl family, we have decided against building the proposed structure that we had hoped would serve as the Earl Conservation Center at Quiet Waters Park,” the Annapolis-based nonprofit said in a 9:44 p.m. statement. It’s not a surprise. The conservancy and the Earl family made the expansion of this popular park possible, orchestrating the $8 million sale to Anne Arundel County using state, federal, local and private funds.
