Development – Bethany Glen
In 2016, Elm Street Development began the process to seek approval from Howard County to proceed on development of an age-restricted townhome and villa neighborhood known as Bethany Glen. The development would add about 238 residences to the area on the north and south open spaces straddling I-70 known as the “Harbin” property. About 90 townhomes and or villas would be placed on the north parcel with direct access to the already congested and dangerous stretch of MD99 that faces the intersections with Weatherstone Rd. and Liter Dr.
As required by the County, the developer conducted its Pre-Submission Community Meeting on June 30th, 2016. At that time, the Vice President of Elm Street, Jason Van Kirk was confronted on his acquisition of internet domain names corresponding to tags socialized in Howard County for sharing information of interest to the community.
