A Brooklyn Park landlord has asked the county Board of Appeals to rule his Brookwood Road apartment building a legal, nonconforming use.
William C. Trevillian has turned to the appeals board because a county zoning official last August denied him permission to continue operating the three-unit building in an area zoned for single-family homes.
The county Office of Planning and Zoning had told Mr. Trevillian in 1990 that he needed to eliminate at least one of the apartments or apply for a legal, nonconforming status.
To gain that status, Mr. Trevillian must show that the three apartments existed before modern zoning laws took effect in 1952.
The appeals hearing is set for 2 p.m. Wednesday in the County Council Chambers of the Arundel Center in Annapolis. For information, call 222-1119.
