Neighborhood group to discuss assisted-living homes for elderly 2 buildings planned near Lindale school

March 21, 1997

A proposal to build two assisted-living residences at Camp Meade and Andover roads, each to house 15 elderly people, will be discussed at 7: 30 p.m. April 9 during the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association's meeting.

Constellation Health Services, a subsidiary of Constellation Real Estate Inc., would be the developer. At the meeting, Constellation officials will present their plans to residents and answer questions.

The one-story buildings would each have 11 parking spaces. They would be built on a 2-acre vacant lot near Lindale-Brooklyn Park Middle School that is zoned for five homes per acre.

The residences would be for senior citizens who need help with basics such as bathing and taking medicine. They would have private baths and communal dining rooms, living rooms and recreational space, Florence Beck Kurdle, vice president of planning for Constellation Real Estate, said yesterday.

She said no building date has been set, nor has the company begun going through the county's subdivision process.

Bill Brown, vice president of development for Constellation Health Services, estimated the cost at $2 million. He said rents would begin at about $2,400 a month.

Susan March, association president, said she thinks the facility would help care givers, and the elderly and would open volunteer opportunities for students.

The meeting will be at Linthicum Elementary School, School Lane and Camp Meade Road.
