Petitions battling proposed Brooklyn Heights club


April 25, 1999|By Frances Jones | Frances Jones,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

AFTER DARK Club, not in our Back Yard," say members of the Brooklyn Heights community.

Fearful of the prospect of such an establishment, which would be open at the odd hours of 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., the residents are circulating petitions through the area, hoping to get the attention of the powers that be: County Council members, zoning officials and the Anne Arundel County Liquor Board.

The County Council has scheduled a hearing on the matter at 7 p.m. May 3 in its chambers at the Arundel Center in Annapolis.

Councilwoman Pamela G. Beidle is sponsoring a bill to eliminate dance halls and night clubs in C3 zoning districts except for special exceptions. Residents should call or write Beidle in support of their position.

Information: 410-222-1401, or write to Beidle at Box 2700, Annapolis 21404.

American Legion dinners

American Legion Post 187 is serving dinners on Friday night at the post home on Cherry Street in Brooklyn. The food is prepared by the Ladies Auxiliary, and, except for special events, the cost is $5.

Proceeds help the auxiliary fund community programs and support veterans' causes. Information: post Commander Milton Zintec, 410-354-1331.

Brooklyn Park water system

May is shaping up as a busy month for the Arundel Improvement Association.

The county Department of Public Works will visit to talk with community residents about rehabilitation of the Brooklyn Park water system.

The other visitor on the May agenda is the new police chief, P. Thomas Shanahan, who will be accompanied by some of his officers.

A Mother's Day luncheon for the senior citizens of the area will celebrate our oldest residents.

In June, the association has planned a slide presentation by Arundel Community Development Services to show the before and after of work provided to income-eligible homeowners.

This is a valuable resource that many people don't know about. Anne Dorret has been with Community Development for 17 years and will narrate.

The association meets the third Thursday of each month, except in July and August, at 705 Cross St. in Brooklyn Park.

Information: 410-789-2192.


County Executive Janet S. Owens will participate in a groundbreaking ceremony for a water rehabilitation project at 10 a.m. May 20 at the Brooklyn Park library grounds on East 11th Avenue. Refreshments will be served.

Information: 410-222-7582.
