Locust Lodge seeks county OK to expand center

July 22, 1996

Operators of a Riviera Beach assisted-living facility are to ask the county administrative hearing officer Thursday for permission to expand the center to house five more occupants.

Locust Lodge wants to use a vacant one-story building behind the main building to increase its capacity from 15 elderly residents to 20.

The center also has asked for a waiver for the main building, which is less than 50 feet from the property line, a violation of zoning law.

Neighbors fear that the proposed expansion could create traffic and safety problems.

The two sides will present their positions at 10: 30 a.m. at the Arundel Center, 44 Calvert St. in Annapolis.
