Historic Preservation To The Bitter End
"Ellicott City homeowners on Church Road have lost every battle in the past three years to block construction of 15 homes in their historic neighborhood. From Howard County's Planning and Zoning Board to the Board of Appeals to Circuit Court, this tenacious group of about 10 residents could not stop the development... Now Michael L. Pfau, the developer and president of Trinity Homes Inc., is asking the county's Historic District Commission to give the final stamp of approval so he can begin construction on the Woods at Park Place. And the Church Road residents are right behind him, with a last chance to weigh in on the development -- the first new subdivision in the county's two designated historic districts."
