Senior citizens on the wait list for a Frederick retirement community may be able to move in sooner than expected in light of a decision Thursday by the city’s Board of Aldermen. That’s when the board unanimously approved the annexation of 73 acres at the intersection of Willow Road and U.S. Route 15, allowing the community, Homewood at Crumland Farms, to expand by 345 units. The board also unanimously approved the annexation of 43 acres at the intersection of Md. Route 26 and Wormans Mill Road that would allow the construction of a Wegmans grocery and Lowe’s hardware stores. They are the first annexations since Mayor W. Jeff Holtzinger (R) lifted on July 10 a nearly seven-year-long moratorium on extending city boundaries
