The Frederick County Board of Commissioners made a decision Thursday to enter into its seventh agreement with developers to build more homes in the county, this time off Ballenger Creek Pike in Frederick. RBG Family LLC, the developers of the proposed Ballenger Run Planned Unit Development, want to build on 197.24 acres of property on the east side of Ballenger Creek Pike, across from Tuscarora High School in Frederick. The proposed Ballenger Run development is currently zoned for people 55 and older, but the developers want to change that and build homes for people of all ages. The property is zoned to build 970 age-restricted housing units, which would include 340 single-family homes, 150 townhouses, and 480 condominiums or apartments. The developers also want to build a 200-unit assisted-living facility on the site.
