Improvement group to discuss insurance

Members of the Linthicum/Shipley Improvement Association will decide tonight whether to spend up to $500 a year for liability insurance.

The association had insurance at one time but let the policy lapse.

The insurance would cover the association and board of directors in case of lawsuits. A State Farm representative will answer questions during the meeting.

The group also expects to discuss additional traffic counts taken as part of a county Traffic Engineering Division study of several roads in Linthicum.

In response to community complaints, county engineers had surveyed traffic using residential areas of Benton Avenue and Edgewood Road as a shortcut between Camp Meade Road and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. County officials had said they would consider closing off or placing restrictive traffic signs on several roads to alleviate the pass-through traffic.

The initial report listed one alternative as closing or re-signing several roads within the community. But it warned that doing so could force more traffic onto Sycamore Road, Homewood Road, Orchard Road or School Lane.

The association will meet at 7:30 p.m. at Linthicum Elementary School.

Cardin to meet with Belle Grove group

The Belle Grove Improvement Association is to meet tonight with U.S. Rep. Ben Cardin, a 3rd District Democrat, at Belle Grove Elementary School.

The neighborhood became part of Mr. Cardin's district when Anne Arundel County was divided among four Congressional districts two years ago.

This will be Mr. Cardin's first meeting with the group since his re-election last fall.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m.
