(Baltimore Sun) Baltimore County marked the start of work Thursday on a long-delayed library and community college facility in Owings Mills — construction designed to jump-start a billion-dollar project that includes homes, stores and offices. Promoted as an economic engine, the project near the Metro station was proposed in 1998 as a “Main Street” hub where residents would live, shop and play. But development got only as far as the massive parking garage, built in 2007, that overlooks Interstate 795.

Jordan Lapp, fourth year ABC Baltimore carpenter apprentice and son of Field Superintendent Jeff Lapp, won ABC Baltimore’s recent written and hands-on competition in the field of carpentry and will be competing in the upcoming ABC Nationals Carpentry trials.
ABC is the nation’s largest commercial construction industry association and has more than 600 member firms in the Baltimore chapter alone. This year’s nationals will be held in San Antonio TX from April 2nd through 15th and Jordan will compete with representatives from the member firms of ABC’s seventy five U.S. chapters. ABC Baltimore’s judges elected not to send competitors from all of the different trade classes to compete in this year’s national competition, but strongly believe that Jordan’s skills will position him well in the upcoming events.
CAM congratulates Jordan on his achievements and looks forward to him placing very high or indeed winning the upcoming event. Congratulations on a job well done!
