[Ulla] Popken -- a German retailer of large-size clothing for women -- plans to move from cramped quarters in Hunt Valley to an empty, former Grumman aircraft manufacturing warehouse on a 35-acre site on Glen Arm Road.
Area residents, who last year blocked a Baltimore County government plan to buy the building for use as a 182,000-square-foot indoor athletic facility, say they have no objection to Popken's presence -- only a concern about future use of the adjacent land.
County Councilman Joseph Bartenfelder, a Fullerton Democrat who represents the area, called Popken "a very good neighbor" and noted that [Thomas] Schneider is looking to buy a home and settle in the Long Green-Glen Arm area. "I love the area," Schneider said.
