Pasadena group sponsors Route 100 landscaping

The new trees and shrubs lining the median of Route 100 are the fledgling effort of the Greater Pasadena Council's beautification committee.

The council raised $900 with the Mountain Road Kiwanis Club and the Pasadena Business Association to plant vegetation around the Paul T. Pitcher memorial between Magothy Bridge Road and Magothy Beach Road.

Frank Halges, vice president of the Greater Pasadena Council, said his group negotiated a cooperative agreement with the State Highway Administration to cultivate the median. He said half of the tress were planted this fall and that the rest will be planted in the spring.

Mr. Halges, who worked with SHA planners to select appropriate shrubs, said he will begin collecting money this spring for additional beautification projects along Route 100, Mountain Road and Fort Smallwood Road.

The council targeted Route 100 initially because it is highly visible, Mr. Halges said. "I wanted to show people there are other things the council can do in addition to fighting zoning battles," he said.

The council represents more than 25 neighborhood associations in northeast Anne Arundel.
