The patch of green on Montgomery Road across from the Long Gate Shopping Center in Ellicott City stands out amid the asphalt, stores and homes. Behind a few small wood-frame houses and garages, these nearly eight acres could almost be a suburban park, with a few trees and a small playground next to Bethel Baptist Church. It's not a park, though, and it's not public property. What it will become remains to be seen. Its future has been argued previously and will apparently be argued again in the months to come as county planners and members of the County Council redraw the county's zoning map, last revised on a wide scale in 2004 and 2005.

A Howard County councilman's suggestion to create an office-institutional zone on a highly controversial stretch of Montgomery Road in Ellicott City has surprised residents, property owners and development interests. At Thursday night's comprehensive rezoning work session, Ellicott City-Elkridge Republican Christopher J. Merdon asked Council Chairman Guy Guzzone for three minutes to explain his reasoning behind what he described his "toughest issue since coming into office." The proposed community center transition district is "a low-intensity zone, and it offers the possibility of senior housing," Merdon said.

A developer wants to build a 160-unit senior housing complex on a stretch of Montgomery Road in Ellicott City that was the object three years ago of a fierce community effort to block a giant home-improvement store. No opposition to J. Chris Pippen's newest plan has surfaced, and officials said it should not affect Howard County's so far stymied efforts to carve out enough land for a new elementary school from nearby V.F.W. Post 7472 and the county's YMCA branch. "I really don't have any objection to the housing," said Jack Reeder, a trustee of Bethel Baptist Church, which is next to the site.
