November 03, 1997|By From staff reports

MIDDLE RIVER -- Final design and engineering for a $5 million streetscape improvement project along a 1.7-mile section of Eastern Boulevard from Selig Avenue near the Middlesex Shopping Center to Martin Boulevard is up for County Council approval tonight.

Century Engineering Inc. is expected to get the $272,000 contract, which is preliminary to construction work starting next year. The project is expected to take a year. All the money would come from state coffers.

The work would include landscaping, curbs, sidewalks and gutters, drainage and median improvements along the busy section of highway. It would fit with the county's effort to rebuild and strengthen older areas.

Arbutus may do away with some parking meters


ARBUTUS -- Local shoppers would get some relief from curbside parking meters if the County Council goes along with a proposal expected to be discussed tonight.

At the request of local business owners, the Baltimore County Revenue Authority plans to remove 116 meters along East Drive and Selma and Maple avenues, where local people say the county collects less than a quarter a day per meter on average.

If the council approves and the county executive signs the bill, the change would take effect in 45 days. Revenue Authority officials say it would take several days to remove the meters.
