Groups concerned about proposed jail site invited to meeting

The Greater Severna Park Council invites all communities concerned about the proposed Millersville detention center site to voice their concerns at the council's monthly meeting tonight at 7:30 at the Severna Park library.

"This meeting will focus on the detention center," said Pat Troy, council president. "We as a council have taken a position opposing the [center's location] already, but many of the communities would like to participate. We will allow people who are concerned to share information about the proposed site and its effects on the community."

The Millersville site for a new 650-bed detention center was chosen a week ago. The site, north of county police and fire headquarters on Veterans Highway, was selected by the task force appointed by County Executive Robert R. Neall and the County Council.

The committee chose the site over other possibilities in Pasadena and Crownsville, where the county met opposition from property owners unwilling to sell.

The presidents of six nearby civic groups have opposed the Millersville site, complaining that the site is close to several elementary schools, two middle schools and a high school. Also, the opposing communities have said, 1,100 homes are located within a half-mile of the site.
