Baltimore County marked the start of work Thursday on a long-delayed library and community college facility in Owings Mills — construction designed to jump-start a billion-dollar project that includes homes, stores and offices. Promoted as an economic engine, the project near the Metro station was proposed in 1998 as a "Main Street" hub where residents would live, shop and play. But development got only as far as the massive parking garage, built in 2007, that overlooks Interstate 795. But with construction on the community college and library starting this week, there are great expectations once again — and some lingering concerns.
