UPDATE: Housing Developer Closing Cross Road 3 Weeks

The Perry Hall road will close Jan. 23 to Feb. 15 for utility construction on the Reserve at Camp Chapel housing development.

Cross Road, between Honeygo Boulevard and Chapel Road, will close Jan. 23 to Feb. 15 for utility construction on the Reserve at Camp Chapel housing development, County Councilman David Marks announced. 

Local traffic will be allowed. Baltimore County Public Schools have also been notified and will alert parents to any bus changes, Marks stated in an email. 

The developer will also complete some improvements to Cross Road, including widening and repaving, during this time, Marks added. 

While the Reserve at Camp Chapel housing development gained approval about four years ago, construction was held until this winter due to the struggling economy, Patch reported. 

A representative of developer D.R. Horton said construction of homes will likely begin in January, and that the development should be completed by the spring. 

The planned neighborhood is named after a former horse farm and the historic Camp Chapel United Methodist Church nearby.

Projected new residents will add approximately nine students to Gunpowder Elementary School, six students to Perry Hall Middle School and seven students to Perry Hall High School, according to a Baltimore County school impact analysis document dated July 19, 2006, provided by the Baltimore County Department of Planning.

See the gallery for development documents.

FIFA, Also there is a Park off Seven Courts Drive in Oakhurst at the end of Sylvan Oak Way, I believe it is called Oakhurst Park. It is maintained by Baltimore County Rec. and Parks and falls under Perry Hall Rec Council. Small Trail Path and Playground with benches.

what? we're not allowed to be called a resident of Perry Hall unless we have a 21128 zip code? Most of it is still Perry Hall. Just because the tiny post office at 21128 couldn't handle the volume; it isn't as if the boundaries moved.

We are glad that we chose the older established neighborhood of Seven Courts when we came here 12 years ago. Pretty much guarantees no further development in the immediate area.
