City council votes to annex 8-acre Arnold property

November 12, 2003

The Westminster Common Council has voted to annex an 8-acre site on Chase Street north of King Park.

The parcel, known as the Arnold property, could become the site of a housing development. At a meeting last month, Hampstead-based Robin Ford Building & Remodeling Inc. expressed interest in building 15 custom-designed homes on the property. The company has not filed plans.

Several residents in the neighborhood bounded by Chase and Anchor streets expressed concern over a potential increase in traffic and garbage.

While residents would rather see the property untouched, the annexation would give the city some control over details of the possible residential development, said Councilman Tom Ferguson. The council's vote Monday night to annex the property was unanimous.
