In addition to current services, the facility can now offer a special Dementia Care Unit for residents with Alzheimers and other cognitive impairments. There also will be a new Respite and Hospice Care Unit and an Assisted Living Residence.

Testimony postponed on development

The County Planning Board voted 4-1 Monday to postpone hearing testimony on a new set of plans for the 352-acre residential, commercial and golfing community northwest of the Interstate 95-Route 100 interchange in Elkridge.

The plans calls for 165 acres of offices, warehouses or research facilities, 181 acres with 202 townhouses and 159 detached houses and six acres for a Columbia-style village shopping center.

For about two years, the development has been held up by its county-mandated plans for a public golf course. County officials agreed two weeks ago to pay $6 million for an 18-hole course the developer will build.

Testimony will be heard during the Dec. 22 planning board meeting at 9:30 a.m. in the George Howard county office building in Ellicott City.
