A hearing on a planned 65-acre subdivision near Harper's Choice village in Columbia was put off last week for insufficient public notice.
County Council members, sitting as the Zoning Board, were to hear testimony Wednesday on the development proposed by Woodlot Enterprises Inc. Because a legally required advertisement did not appear in the Howard County Sun, the hearing had to be postponed until Tuesday.
The meeting will be held in the Banneker Room of the George Howard county office building, starting at 8:30 p.m. If needed, a second hearing would be held Oct. 29 at 8 p.m.
The subdivision of 32 town houses and 95 detached houses on xTC quarter-acre and one-fifth-acre lots would be built on what is known as the Carroll property, off Harper's Farm Road between the Hobbit's Glen and Swansfield neighborhoods. The land is now zoned for three-acre-minimum lots.
