Hearing for proposed child care center is postponed after 150 people show up

February 11, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

More than 150 residents showed up to protest a proposed child care center in their Ellicott City neighborhood last night, forcing the Board of Appeals to postpone the hearing until April 13 because the meeting room was too small.

The residents, many from the Hollifield Station Community Association, do not want a 10,466-square-foot child care facility in their neighborhood. If approved, the center would be one of the largest such facilities in Howard County.

In October, the Howard County Planning Board voted unanimously to recommend rejection of the center.
