Finksburg Library plans, drought, church expansion on council agenda

August 23, 1999

The Finksburg Planning Area Council will hold a community meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at Sandy Mount United Methodist Church.

Linda Mielke, Carroll County public library director, will discuss the library trustees' plans for a Finksburg branch. A plan has been submitted to the county for a building on a 1.5-acre site.

A representative from the Baltimore City Department of Public Works will discuss the health of Liberty Reservoir and the effect of the drought.

The council has voted to oppose the construction of a "mega" church at Mount Gilead Road and Route 91. A Baltimore County zoning hearing will continue at 9 a.m. Thursday in Towson.

Council members have been meeting with leaders of Grace Community Church to learn more about the proposal and to seek a reduction in the size of the project.

Other agenda items will include a suggestion box for issues and the opening of Arabian Drive to Brown Road.

Finksburg residents, business owners and their families and friends are welcome.

The church is at 2101 Old Westminster Pike.
