On February 29th Carroll County Commissioner Ed Rothstein (District 5) provided some additional details in advance of the March 5th community outreach meeting regarding the proposed storage facility next to Carroll Highlands in Eldersburg.

Some key points mentioned on the 29th include:

  • The proposed building will not go above 35ft in height
  • There is interest in building this property to go into the hills – it would only be two floors, not three floors towards the residence and wouldn’t tower over the homes that are in Carroll Highlands

on Tuesday I believe on the 5th I’m having a I’m facilitating and hosting a community discussion. It’s not a town hall. It’s not where I will share, here are all the things happening in the county, in District 5, down in Sykesville-Eldersburg, and what are your questions. It’s more, here is a specific topic and what are your questions and concerns about this specific topic. And this one has to do with development that is being thought through to happen down in Eldersburg. And everybody’s heard about this, this storage facility. It is not, you know, I want to be pretty clear about this. Currently, it is not a plan that has been submitted into the county process. So in other words, it has not gone through technical review or concept plan at this point.

What has occurred is individual and a company has put the piece of property under contract it is a commercial piece of property and as this was occurring the Board of County Commissioners came up with a determination of what was we call the bulk requirements are to be allowed on this piece of property and we came up with the 35-foot ceiling or height with a sliding scale and all that kind of fun stuff, which concerns folks because with the sliding scale, it could go higher on this property. I’ve spoken to the proposed owner who put the property under contract. He’s looking at building a storage facility on that property. he has shared to me and I have shared to the community that it will not go above 35 feet at any given point regardless if he’s allowed to or not the other interesting piece about this is his interest in building this property is to go into the hills.
So therefore it would only be two floors, not three floors towards the residence so it actually makes it more appealing to the community, or I believe it would be more appealing to the community because it wouldn’t tower over the homes that are in Carroll Highlands everything that this developer has shared I have turned and shared with other folks.

You know I do not get onto social media often and those that are on social media with the name calling and all this other stuff that’s out there, they can call names all they want and opine all they want. The best thing to do is reach out and get the information because I’m not shy about giving the information that I know at any given point but
Anything else on social media, it just seems to be clown activities.

But it can be used for good things, like our government hosting activities. And we then can share to ensure that this community activity has people aware that they can attend. currently is scheduled for 6:30 and as always I train to standard not to time so uh if it’s expected to go to eight and goes to 8:30, 9:00, 10:00 that’s regardless and I will be there and uh be available for anyone who’s in attendance um in the meantime, between now and then if folks do have questions uh feel free again, reach out. You know, I’m very, uh, much available you know my phone number 443-569-9861 and you know where to find me so
