Budget Funds Infrastructure, Park Upgrades Throughout Fifth District

The proposed Fiscal Year 2018 budget addresses numerous priorities in studentsthe Fifth District.  I am particularly pleased with the inclusion of funding to advance a new middle school, my top priority in the northeast, but there are numerous other improvements that will benefit our communities.  These include:

  • $10 million to renovate the Bykota Senior Center;
  • $1 million to address flooding along Kingston Road in Stoneleigh;
  • $4.3 million to replace the water line and upgrade the pumping station in Campus Hills;
  • $185,000 to replace the roof at the Towson police station;
  • About $664,365 to improve heating and replace the roof at the Towson library;
  • $105,000 for improvements at the Fullerton fire station;
  • $210,000 for improvements at the White Marsh police station;
  • $800,000 to build an artificial turf field at Perry Hall High School; and
  • $500,000 to improve Kingsville Park.

The budget funds numerous school upgrades, such as $400,000 for a boiler replacement and $450,000 for an elevator at Rodgers Forge Elementary School; ball diamond upgrades at Campus Hills, Forge Park; and Cromwell Valley, Gunpowder, Joppa View, Rodgers Forge, and Seven Oaks Elementary Schools; and multipurpose court resurfacing at Overlook Park and Carney, Cromwell Valley, and Pleasant Plains Elementary Schools.
