The Rouse Co. presented its plans for Columbia's first "gated" community to the Columbia Association's governing board last night and received a warmer reception than it got at previous presentations to smaller, community groups.The 10-member board asked few sharp questions about the proposed condominium development just west of The Mall in Columbia. Overall, the board seemed to accept the Rouse Co.'s plans, although it has yet to take a formal position.By contrast, activists in Town Center and Wilde Lake villages have said that the proposed 4-foot high, wrought-iron-style fence encircling most of the development creates a barrier that flies in the face of one of Columbia's founding goals -- openness among economic classes.

When Patricia O'Donnell bought her first home -- a condominium in Columbia's Dorsey's Search village -- she never thought she'd end up homeless.But for two months last winter, she was forced out of her two-bedroom unit after building sprinkler pipes froze and burst in cold weather. It was the sixth sprinkler-pipe break in seven years for O'Donnell and other residents in the Dorsey Place Condominiums.Residents claim the design of the fire safety sprinkler-pipe system is faulty and the builder -- Trafalgar House -- should revamp the whole thing.

When Neal and Brenda Katz moved into their new house in Laurel in November 1989, they thought they had found their dream home -- cathedral ceilings, hardwood and ceramic tile floors, a whirlpool tub in the master bathroom and name-brand appliances.But the first week, they say, one-third of the shingles blew off the roof. The house's electrical system short-circuited a brand new compact disc player, a VCR and eight light bulbs the same day, they say. And there's the shock Ms. Katz says she got last month when she turned on a light switch; the shock blew the light and the dimmer.
