Comments still welcome on proposed historic district in Elkridge

January 24, 1994

Because of the bad weather, people who couldn't make it to Wednesday's Zoning Board hearing will have another chance to comment on the proposed historic district for the Lawyers Hill area in Elkridge.

The board decided to allow people to submit written comments to the board until Feb. 2.

The proposed district encompasses 54 homes along Montgomery Road, Belmont Woods Road, Elibank Drive, Old Lawyers Hill Road, Lawyers Hill Road and River Road. It would be the county's second historic district after historic Ellicott City.

The district will require property owners to obtain approval from the county Historic District Commission for all exterior changes or improvements. The area was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places, which offers protection from federally funded projects such as interstate highways.

Comments should be mailed to Zoning Board Office, 3430 Courthouse Drive, Ellicott City 21043, or dropped off at the County Council office on the first floor of the George Howard county office building.

Heritage Society is seeking donations

The Elkridge Heritage Society, which is open noon to 3 p.m. Monday, is looking for donations to purchase a new, more efficient heating system for its headquarters at the Brumbaugh House.

The society is starting a "Hundred-Dollar Club" for those who want to contribute $100 or more toward the purchase of two gas furnaces.

The equipment will cost a total of $7,000, said President Jack Bateman. Those who want to contribute can, call Mr. Bateman at 796-2722.
