Public to talk over plans for new recreation center

January 07, 1994

A public meeting to discuss the location for a proposed swim and recreation center in north county is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Linthicum Library.

Land at Dorsey and Camp Meade Roads near the Amtrak lines is being considered. The site is not far from Westinghouse, said Ferndale resident Lewis F. Holmes, who is trying to bring a recreation center to north county.

Residents objected to a site near the northern end of Baltimore-Washington International Airport at a Dec. 7 public meeting that Mr. Holmes organized.

Residents at that meeting said they were all for a swim and recreation center, but felt the proposed site was too close to nearby residences.

About 50 residents who live in the area of the first site have signed a petition against its location there, said Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association President Gerald Starr.

The new proposed site is in a sparsely settled area, Mr. Holmes said.

The Linthicum Improvement Association has invited Mr. Holmes to discuss his idea for a recreation center in north county at the Jan. 27 meeting.
