Plans for apartments to be reviewed

The Howard County Planning Board will review plans today to build 104 rental apartment units for senior citizens in Owen Brown village.

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Ellicott Room of the George Howard Building in Ellicott City.

Owen Brown II Limited Partnership has submitted a sketch plan for approval. The rental units would be built next to Owen Brown Place within the Cradlerock Way loop, on about one-third acre, with another one-third acre reserved for open space.

Ten percent of the units would be reserved for low-income tenants, the remainder for moderate-income tenants.
