State tripling spending on street improvements

June 30, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The state will triple its spending in established neighborhoods on streetscape improvements such as sidewalks, landscaping and crosswalks, Gov. Parris N. Glendening announced last night.

Over the next six years, funding for the program will increase from $50 million to $150 million, Glendening told a gathering of local officials at the Maryland Municipal League's annual convention in Ocean City.

The neighborhood conservation program is part of Glendening's Smart Growth effort to revitalize older communities and discourage suburban sprawl.
