BALTIMORE (WJZ)–Rejected. The city turns down a major revitalization plan on downtown’s west side.

A city design review panel rejected the plan after local civil rights groups warned it would demolish a key landmark in the Civil Rights Movement.

The plan would have called for tearing down  the former Read’s Drug Store on Howard Street, the site of a sit in by African-American college students in 1955.
