Uniontown Road development renamed Stoneridge Overlook

March 24, 1998

The planned Uniontown Road development Union Ridge has a new name: Stoneridge Overlook.

County emergency services officials had raised concerns about the old name, saying Union Ridge might sound too much like the town of Union Bridge to dispatchers.

The new name suits the land, said Martin W. Hackett, vice president of CLSI, the land planners and engineers for the development. The 45-acre site is the last tract within the Westminster city limits used for cow grazing.

Although the development has a new name, planning approval remains conditional based on the opening of an elementary school in the fall of next year to relieve crowding.

Cranberry Elementary School is scheduled to open next year, county school officials say, after a year's delay that resulted when the first bids came in over budget.

"No lots are to be recorded until the school was under construction," Hackett said of the conditional approval. "The new school is supposed to open in September 1999, so it's on track."


Westminster: A resident of Poole Road told police Friday that someone scratched her vehicle while it was parked on North Court Street. Damage was estimated at $250.

Westminster: A resident of Canon Way told police that her 1987 Toyota was stolen while it was parked outside the Westminster Inn on South Center Street between 4: 45 p.m. Saturday and 2: 30 a.m. Sunday. The loss was estimated at $5,000.
