More than 70 single-family homes are proposed to be built along a busy stretch of Harford Road in Fallston, between Connolly Road and Route 152.
A public input meeting on the project will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Fallston Volunteer Fire Company station at 2201 Carrs Mill Road.
According to the concept plan for the 71-home neighborhood, tentatively named "Hamilton," which can be viewed on the Harford County Government website, http://www.harfordcountymd.gov, under the Department of Planning and Zoning, the property's address is at 1917 Harford Road in Fallston, and is owned by HC Ventures LLC, of Nottingham.
The site is on almost 28.5 acres east of Harford Road and will include about 11 acres of total open space. Each unit will have two garage spaces. The property is known locally as the Amoss farm.
"A homeowner's association shall be established for the ownership and maintenance of all stormwater management facilities, all open space areas and forest conservation areas," the plan, which was submitted by Morris and Ritchie Associates Inc., states.
An entrance/exit off Harford Road will connects to a perpendicular road, which ends in a cul-de-sac surrounded by homes and open space.
The development will be next to the Living Word Assembly of God Church, according to the plan, and an existing residential area on Harford Road.
The site is on a stretch of Harford Road that tends to back up with traffic during rush hours, morning and evening.
