Shelter's expansion is recommended by county panel; Board of Appeals to hear case Jan. 18


The Howard County Planning Board voted unanimously yesterday to recommend approval for expansion of an Ellicott City homeless shelter from eight to 12 people.

Nobody at the meeting contested the expansion of Miles House, a transitional shelter on Fels Lane near historic Main Street. The shelter is run by the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center Inc.

The case is scheduled to go before the Board of Appeals on Jan. 18.
