The Harford County Development Advisory Committee reviewed plans last Wednesday for the 290-unit Berkshire Manor development off Route 7 between Riverside and Aberdeen.

Formerly known as Woodlawn, the project would have 129 single-family lots, 105 townhouses with garages and 56 garage-less townhouses.

The residential development would take up 39 of the total 101 acres between Old Philadelphia Road, Coral Berry Court and Twin Leaf Drive.

Developers of the Berkshire Manor project are listed as John and Grace Hiter and Clark Turner Signature Homes.

No one from the public spoke about Berkshire Manor during Wednesday’s plans review.

The site currently contains a house and several outbuildings, serviced by an individual well and on-site disposal system. The new development will be served by public water and sewer.

The Department of Parks and Recreation representative made minor recommendations about the park areas in the development, but noted the plan does propose 43.5 acres of open space, including 7.7 acres of it active.

The required open space is 15.1 acres, with 7.5 acres of it being active.

The Department of Public Works representative noted that the location of the proposed sewer connection point is different than originally planned by Harford County and causes capacity problems by tying into the Hollywoods development’s sewers.

There will be a water booster station site that must also be approved by he county.

The committee also gave comments on a lot revision to a 46-acre site known as the land of Charles L. Brockmeyer, on the north side of Jaycee Drive north of I-95, in Joppa.

frankly I think it's crazy to place more house in Harford County. I's already over populated, over crowded. And they complain about the massive amount of Deers being killed all the time. Well when you over develope an area ..the deer and wild life have no where to go except into the streets of our neighborhoods. Besides if you are gonna waist money on building housing ..at least make it affordable. Most people can't afford the homes that are already existing in Aberdeen as it is...
