Previous Meeting Information
The proposed Erickson Living at Limestone Valley community began with an open house meeting held on June 15, 2017 at the Gathering Place in Clarksville, MD. Since this meeting, Erickson Living has continued to engage and seek input from neighbors, community groups and stakeholders in more than 50 additional meetings outside the formal process over the past two years.
The approvals for Erickson Living at Limestone Valley is a two steps process:
- An act of legislation to extend water and sewer service to the property
- Rezoning of the property to permit an Erickson Living community
On July 27, 2018, the Howard County Council unanimously approved CB-59-2018, which extends the Planned Service Area of Howard County to include Limestone Valley and permits the extension of water and sewer service to the property. We are currently in the rezoning process. The proposed Limestone Valley community received a unanimous vote recommending approval by the Howard County Planning Board on March 21, 2019.
