Howard County to purchase Ellicott City site for Elementary School 43

Wednesday, 15 November 2017, 03:27:51 PM. The 12-acre Ellicott City site will be purchased as part of a larger process to relieve overcrowding in Howard County elementary schools.
Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman announced Tuesday that the county will purchase a 12-acre site in Turf Valley for the school system’s 43rd elementary school, expected to open in 2023. The announcement comes two days before the Howard County Board of Education votes on a final decision for redistricting next school year. The Ellicott City site is part of a larger process to relieve overcrowding in the county’s elementary schools. Located on Resort Road, the county will purchase the site from Mangione Family Enterprises, pending County Council approval. Kittleman said in a statement that the price agreement, $5.75 million, falls below appraised value, and the county will follow through with a purchase and sales agreement once an appraisal is updated.
