Living in Howard County: How Close Are Restaurants and Cafes to Apartments?

Living in Howard County can be a great experience, especially if you're looking for a spacious apartment in the heart of downtown Columbia. Columbia Town Center Apartments offer beautiful, well-maintained grounds and a great location. However, there are some things to consider before signing up for an apartment. The energy bill can be quite high in the summer due to the old building and poor insulation between the ceiling and the vaulted ceiling.

Additionally, children often run and ride bicycles around the complex without taking anyone into account. This can be quite disruptive, as I have had several cases where they knocked on my door as they passed. When I finally had the chance to see the apartment I signed up for, it was nothing like the one I saw on the tour. The living room was shady with cracked floors, completely different from what I expected.

The only redeeming quality is that maintenance is usually quick when you need to fix something in your apartment. To help restaurants continue their recovery, Howard County has created two processes to allow restaurants that were granted temporary outdoor seating to make their seats permanent. To obtain an extension of the facilities, follow the steps established by the Howard County Board of Alcoholic Beverage Commissioners. The required application and a detailed checklist can be found on the Howard County Council Alcoholic Beverage Board website.

Howard County refers to the definitions and calculations of trip generation published by the Institute of Traffic Engineers (ITE). This helps determine how close restaurants and cafes are to apartments in Howard County.
