New housing units for backstretch personnel at Laurel Park, which were proposed more than a year ago, finally should be built next spring."Patience pays off," said Chickie Grayson, the Enterprise Foundation official who is coordinating efforts to construct the three, two-story motel-type buildings. They will house 105 people, mostly employees who work with horses and currently live on the track in what is widely described as antiquated, substandard housing.The program was sidetracked for a year while Jack Kent Cooke attempted to get approval for a new stadium for his Washington Redskins football team at the Laurel site, which included the land set aside for the dorms.
