Teen center considered for golf site

A Harford County businessman is considering opening a teen center where Glen Golf & Games is, community planner Glenn Mathiasen told a meeting of the Glen Burnie Urban Renewal Advisory Committee yesterday.

Rob Brown, who operates a teen center in Harford County, would put in a dance floor of as many as 1,200 square feet, a soft drink bar, pool tables, about 50 video game machines and might add outdoor miniature golf, Mr. Mathiasen said.

Glen Golf & Games, 7489 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd, near the intersection of Delaware Avenue, is a 9,220-square-foot building.

"I built it with the idea of selling it," said owner Russ Helveston.

Open nearly two years with indoor miniature golf, pool tables, video games, a snack bar and the like, the business did well initially, but has not recently.

Mr. Helveston said he has not been approached by Mr. Brown, but is listing the business with an agent.

The teen center would need approval from the advisory committee.

The Urban Renewal group gave tentative approval to Seaside Seafood's plan to remodel and add to a restaurant at Crain Highway and New Jersey Avenue. Seaside, 1701 S. Crain Highway, hopes to move to the former site of Faye's Restaurant and open by April.

Architect Dick Parrish told the committee that Seaside's plans call for a restaurant to seat 150, plus a carryout. The building is about 1,800 square feet. The addition would be about 3,250 square feet.

Mr. Parrish will return to the panel to seek approval for a sign.
