THE SUN, Tuesday, July 20, 1982 D3 Few protest Howard plan for growth liy Gail A. Campbell Howard County Bureau of The Sun - With few protests, the Howard County Council presented the final draf t of its plan for future growth at a public hearing last night. The second half of the Council's .growth blueprint encompasses various services including housing, education, water and sewerage, public transportation, libraries and parks. Unlike the first half of the plan that dealt with land use and the county's, highway system, this portion is ; similar to a draft submitted by County Executive J. Hugh Nichols last ..year. ...j. The first half of the plan was approved in May. The second half, to be approved next month, is a more .sharply tuned document because it deals with specifics. , , However, Richard D. Talkin, a Co-,;lunibia attorney who handles many county zoning cases, said he thought the plan was too specific. "Specificity is not a general plan function," Mr. Talkin said. He was especially upset about the housing portion, of the plan, telling the Council members: "We have to rely on the private sector to provide housing in this county. Why not give owners the option of density? Right now, the plan - is a too strict channelization into too Jew properties." ,In housing, the county's 1971 plan was based on an estimated population :pf 260,000 by the turn of the century. :The Council's new plan projects about 20,000 fewer residents, but provides . for a variety of housing types for all jncome levels. Today, almost two-thirds of county .houses are single-family homes. By .1990, the new Council plan says, this number is expected to drop to about 53 percent. """ To help the county's housing problem, the new Council plan proposes continuing the practice of offering tax-exempt bonds for companies interested in building homes and apartments; encouraging cooperative and condominium apartments, manufac-' tured houses and mobile homes, and - encouraging more assisted rental 'units in areas where full-price apart-' ments and homes already exist to avoid a concentration of low-income " housing in any one area. Thomas G. Harris, Jr., the Office ' of Zoning and Planning director, agreed with others who said the Council's new plan was similar to the county executive's, but offered as a criticism that "it suffers from a general lack of clarity. It's a relatively 'weak general plan to guide the county over the next few years," Mr. Harris 'Sdded. '"' One difference between the old plan and the new is the outlook for school construction. The 1971 plan predicted the county 'would need 55 elementary schools, 26 middle schools and 13 high schools by ' the year 2000. The Council's proposed -plan takes into account the declining :lementary-school enrollment of the " last four years and the expected de-' cline in middle- and high-school enrollments in the 1980s. Nick Ford, ex-Morgan State professor, dies DR. NICK AARON FORD Nick Aaron Ford, chairman of the English department at Morgan State University for 23 years and an authority on Afro-American literature and black studies, died Saturday at Provident Hospital after a short illness. He was 77. Widely known in his field since publication of his pioneering literary study, "The Contemporary Negro Novel," more than 45 years ago, Dr. Ford was named chairman of the English department at Morgan in 1947, about two years after he joined the faculty as an English professor. When he left the post as department chairman in 1970, he took a year's sabbatical leave, receiving a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to conduct research on black studies nationally that resulted in one of his 10 books, "Black Studies, Threat or Challenge?" He then returned to Morgan until 1974 as the university's Alain Locke professor of black studies. When he retired from the Morgan faculty in 1974, Dr. Ford was named director of the Center for Minority Studies of the Union for Experimenting Colleges and Universities, then located in Baltimore and later transferred to the Brookings Institution in Washington. At age 75, he retired from that position. Given more credit by faculty colleagues than anyone else in the last half-century for advances in Morgan's English program and curriculum, Dr. Ford was a former president of the mid-Atlantic region of the College English Association and an executive committee member of the As sociation of Departments of English and the Conference on College Com position and Communication. He was a former state chairman of the high school English achievement awards program of the National Council of Teachers of English and served on the council's national advisory board and its Commission for International Cooperation. In 1971, he received the Outstanding Service Award of the Maryland Council of Teachers of English. ' Funeral services for Dr. Ford, who lived in the 900 block East 43d street, will be held at noon tomorrow at Enon Baptist Church, Edmondson avenue and North Schroeder street, where he had been a director of Christian education. A native of Ridgeway, S.C., Dr. "Ford was a graduate of Benedict Col lege in Columbia, S.C., which awarded him an honorary doctorate of literature in 1964. He earned a master's degree and doctorate at the University of Iowa and taught at colleges in several states before joining the faculty at Morgan. His first wife, the former Janie Etheridge, died in 1967. Dr. Ford is survived by his wife, the former Ola M. Scroggins, also a retired member of Morgan's English faculty; a son, Leonard A. Ford, of Baltimore; two grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. The family suggested that contributions in Dr. Ford's memory be made to the Morgan Christian Center, the Benedict College Scholarship Fund or the American Cancer Society.

Bid to tap general revenues for utilities fails in Arundel Anne Arundel County Bureau of The Sun The Anne Arundel County Council rejected a proposed Charter amendment yesterday that would have let the county government use money in its general budget to help repair and refurbish its troubled water and sewer systems. The Council disapproved the proposal in a 5-2 vote after several claimed that passing the measure would drive up property taxes. That tax money goes into the general budget for all county services, while public sewerage and water is paid for only by property owners who receive the services. Just over a third of the county's homes are connected with public sewerage and water. Hermann K. Intemann, general manager of county utilities, predicted the amendment's defeat will slow county growth and restrict sewer and water extensions to areas "where the public health is clearly in jeopardy and conditions are the worst." His utilities bureau and the Charter Review Commission had backed the bill. The bill needed five Council members' Votes before it could have been put to the voters as a referendum on the November 2 ballot. Only Council members Sarah Carter (D, Brooklyn Park) and Ronald C. McGuirk (D, Glen Burnie) voted for it. The Charter proposal was "good public policy" because, Mr. McGuirk said, the Council has significantly reduced sewer service areas as a method of limiting and controlling growth. The effect of the shrinkage of these areas covered by public sewerage, he said, is that several county treatment plants will operate below capacity and "never break even" financially. In an interview after the Council vote, Mr. Intemann said the utility system will be unable, in the long run, to expand without additional financial support.
