What's in the Works

Mission First Housing Group, a 501(c3) nonprofit developer, is proposing a 76-unit new construction apartment project at the NE corner of Cedar Lane and Freetown Road in Columbia, MD. The Patuxent Commons project concept was developed by the Howard County Autism Society and its Housing Task Force to help address the housing needs of adults with disabilities. This mixed income development will have 25% of the units set-aside to serve individuals with disabilities, with the balance of the units targeted to seniors, individuals and families. This ideal location, close to transit, shopping, recreation, and job opportunities, will facilitate integration of residents with disabilities into the surrounding community and promote their ability to live as independently as possible.
