Groundbreaking Held For Owings Mills Development

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore County is touting the start of construction on a library and community college facility in Owings Mills.

The $30 million building is going to house the largest branch of the Baltimore County Public Library and a new center for the Community College of Baltimore County. Officials say that building is expected to be completed by the winter of 2013.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz at Thursday’s groundbreaking credited county employees and former executives for keeping the long-delayed project alive. The construction of the center for the library and community college is designed to spark a billion-dollar project that will include homes, stores and offices.

    Won’t do anything. Owings Mills will always be a slum now. This will just be another breeding ground for inner city slime.

    Yea !! I agree tom, just another place for the slimes and ghetto people to come up and hang out,I live in owings mills by the mall and ever since they put the light rail up here it has been nothing but trouble,the movies used to be a good place to go as so the mall now I go to pa and shop ,

    1. Tom says:

      Metro, not light rail. But yes, the MTA being put in had a lot to do with it. That, and there are much nicer malls, much closer. Also, Owings Mills Mall was built as an upscale mall. Salaries in the O. Mills area don’t support that.
