    Good to see they've worked out the details.
  • FTFA: Residents living in and around North Laurel's Beechcrest Mobile Home Park lashed out at Howard County officials Thursday, saying they were not properly notified of the county's plans to build an apartment complex for the chronically homeless.

    Also from TFA:

    About 90 residents attended Thursday's meeting

    So they're going to relocate at least 90 people (possibly many more) to house 50 (at most)?

    There's no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at the local planning department.

    Howard County. Explains it all.

    Too bad the stairs have gone.

    Oh, there will be a PROJECT after this is complete, believe that. $5 says it makes the current mobile park look like a wealthy suburb on the hillside by comparison once the "chronically homeless" have been using it for a couple of years.

    The only thing that will beautify North Laurel is something in the 10-15kt range. Maybe arrange it so the fallout lands in Dundalk, hon.
  • Probably not the worst story about homeless to be associated with the area...

    FROM THE ARTICLE: The county Housing Commission acquired the land at the 5.5-acre mobile home park in September from Atapco Properties, and plans to build between 33 and 50 one-room apartments for the chronically homeless.

    The efficiency style apartments will house one person each and will include space for a fold out couch and a desk that will serve as a dresser. The apartments also will also have a small kitchenette and bathroom.


    Illiterate Dumbass, much?

    Also from the article: The land, valued at $1.6 million, was given to the Housing Commission by Atapco in exchange for an adjustment to its MIHU (Moderate Income Housing Unit) requirements for the Howard Square Development on Route 1, according to Tom Carbo, executive director of the Housing Commission.

    So, they are also getting to build LESS "moderate income" housing on their other project. Meaning more homes for the affluent, more homes for the chronically homeless, and LESS homes for average working people. Dump the homeless where the working poor(or at least, non-homeless poor) used to live, get rid of the working poor and welfare cases any way you can, and build new shiat for everyone else so you can keep hiding the problems.

    Sounds about right.
  • "The meeting became tense at times, as residents yelled at county officials demanding to know why the community was not notified about the project before the land was acquired in September."

    LOOK. We're giving you the incentive to own your own property. Why do you hate America?
  • Subby: Howard County is one county. Try "county's plan". You can use counties' plan if it was a plan shared by a group of two or more counties.
    Love,
    Kevin.

    That said, it was a terribly stupid and wrongheaded plan and deserves to be mocked on FARK. Well done, good find, Subby.
  • In other words, the mobile home park was given to them as a bribe to get what else the developer wanted.

    Yes, there is generally an underlying cause for chronic homelessness. Mental illness, drug addiction, or both. Upstanding hardworking people may find themselves homeless, but rarely is that chronic.
