COMPARED WITH a cement factory or a mega-store or even a restaurant, a retirement center is a desirable choice for a neighbor. But to some folks in north Sykesville, it looks just as unattractive as any other business.Episcopal Ministries to the Aging, whose Fairhaven Retirement Community has been in the town for 23 years, wants to build a headquarters on its own land across Third Avenue from the retirement center. The structure would consolidate administrative staff from three facilities, employing about 40 people, most of whom already work at Fairhaven.
