Don Reuwer is expected to receive approval of his preliminary sketch plan for his Locust Chapel development in Elkridge this week. Locust Chapel may end up being the first single family home development in Howard County to meet the county’s newly adopted “Green Neighborhood” criteria.
The 64 lot development on 36.5 acres at the intersection of Ilchester Road and Beechwood Road earned 98 points out of possible 167 points to achieve the green neighborhood designation.
According to the Howard/Arundel Report newsletter, these green credentials will allow the project to “leap-frog out of the moratorium-bound Elkridge planning area” by taking advantage of the 100 housing allocations set aside by the county for green projects.
