$30,000 earmarked for Warfield Complex master plan

March 26, 1998

Sykesville plans to use $30,000 from the state to help develop a master plan for the Warfield Complex, a 131-acre site at Springfield Hospital Center.

The money is part of about $57 million for various projects that Gov. Parris N. Glendening proposed in the supplemental capital budget Tuesday.

"We have Del. Ellen Willis Miller to thank for this," said Matthew H. Candland, town manager. "She took the lead and worked with the governor on our behalf."

In December, the state approved Sykesville's proposal to renovate the 15 aging buildings into a business and industrial campus. The town appointed a 15-member Warfield Advisory Committee and has scheduled a five-day community planning workshop at the complex next month.

"The grant will really help with so many costs involved in coming up with a master plan," Candland said.

Those costs include consultant, engineering and legal fees, as well as advertising and planning materials, he said.
