Sykesville OKs improvements program
The Sykesville Planning and Zoning Commission has voted unanimously to accept a capital improvements program for fiscal 1994.
Projects include $78,000 for road improvements; a $4,000 storage shed for four town vehicles now parked outdoors; and about $45,000 for new equipment. Included in the planned equipment purchases is $14,900 for another police car.
Planners said they are pushing the state to begin improvements to Route 32, which runs along Sykesville's border.
"You are planning how you want your town to grow," said Helen Spinelli, the county's comprehensive water and sewer planner. "Plan and finance Sykesville's future."
The plan includes projected expenditures through fiscal 1997. In 1995, the Recreation and Parks Department is asking for $240,000 to build a public swimming pool at Burkett Park.
Town Manager James L. Schumacher said the pool will be proposed but financing may delay construction for several years.
