The developers of a new retirement community in Ellicott City are to break ground Thursday, nearly 10 years after their organization was given the land for the site. The Lutheran Village at Miller's Grant could house 400 people upon completion, expected in 2015. The $140 million development takes its name from the family of Charles E. Miller and his son Paul, which gave the Frederick Road land in 2005 to Carroll Lutheran Village, a Westminster-based organization that started a retirement community in 1977 and today serves about 700 people in 400 homes.
