Carroll County will not proceed with plans to build a $13 million water treatment plant on Piney Run Reservoir in Sykesville until it obtains the land it needs for an access road and pipeline. The commissioners reviewed yesterday a $477,570 contract for designing the plant, securing state construction permits and putting the work out to bid. The county legal staff has approved the contract, but the commissioners will defer approval until they have secured rights of way from residents along Hollenberry Road.

An article in yesterday's Maryland section about Union Memorial Hospital seeking to put a helipad on its roof should have said that the access road to its current helipad at Lake Montebello can still be used. However, because hospital officials must make advance arrangements to have the road opened, they say its use is limited in emergencies.

Sometimes the process does work. Sometimes the government is responsive to the citizens and everyone wins. The article in the Sept. 22 issue headlined "SHA set to begin design phase of Route 29 widening" tells only part of the story regarding the access road from Old Columbia Road to Twin Knolls Road. The residents of the affected area — the lower Wandering Way area and the three homes on Old Columbia Road — engaged in a long process with the State Highway Administration that goes back more than a year and a half.

The Perryville town commissioners do their town a service by standing firm on the issue of whether the town will end up being financially responsible for a road that becomes a major truck access route for the Perry Point VA Medical Center. The federal veterans installation has been in place at Perry Point for decades, and truck access has long been a problem. As the years go by, trucks get bigger, but the space under the railroad bridges in Perryville doesn't grow. It's trucks that bring in the substantial loads of supplies needed at Perry Point, and for a number of years getting trucks under bridges and onto the facility has been a growing problem.

Four homes tucked behind my house are accessed by a long driveway/road that runs in between my house and the house next door to me. The driveway then breaks off into the four separate driveways of the four homes. I call them my backyard neighbors. Three of my four "backyard" neighbors recently indicated that their driveways were going to be redone by the builder because of water puddling and other issues (cracking, dips, etc.) and that the main access road (the main driveway) also is going to be resurfaced.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | February 5, 2013
With what appear to be the best of intentions, the Bel Air Town Commissioners took an action this week that is likely to make an already bad traffic situation worse. For many years, residents of English Country Manor, the pleasant little community off of Gateway Drive behind Harford Mall, have complained to the town about what they perceive as the need for a traffic light at the intersection of Gateway Drive and Boulton Street. The commissioners on Monday approved an $85,000 contract to install the light, and it could operational by May, the town's public works director said.

Hundreds of Baltimore residents voiced strong opposition to a preliminary plan to add more parking spaces and an access road to Patterson Park during a community meeting there Monday night — at times shouting down city officials trying to explain it. The meeting, held at the park's Virginia S. Baker Recreation Center, was the first of four planned by City Councilman James Kraft and city officials after Kraft told residents about the plan last month...

Those who have followed the years-long saga of the Gateway School site in Clarksville might be experiencing deja vu after County Executive Ken Ulman's announcement last week that the county had reached a deal to sell the 7.8-acre parcel for $5 million to a developer for a commercial project that would stand out for its environment- and pedestrian-friendly design. If the statement had a familiar ring, it's because the county made essentially the same announcement in May 2010 - the same price, the same land on Clarksville Pike across from the River Hill village center, the same developer and the same celebration of the promise of the project.

Neighbors who fear that a plan to expand an energy-producing incinerator in Harford County will cause them traffic headaches won't know until later this year if their concerns will be addressed. The Harford County Council recently chose not to consider a proposal that would have required the Army, Baltimore County and the state to build a new access road from Route 24 to the Harford Waste-to-Energy Facility next to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Joppa as part of a proposed $400 million expansion project.

Returning from a monthlong break, the Howard County Council will begin discussing new legislation on Tuesday, including a bid to restrict the county's authority to seize private property through eminent domain. A bill introduced by Greg Fox, a Fulton Republican, would change the county charter to limit the county's ability to take land for nonpublic uses. It is in response to a continuing battle over where to put an access road for a county-owned property that was slated to be a mixed-use development before the developer backed out in July.

It's not a huge sum of money when it comes to public works projects, which can run in to the tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars, but the $210,000 the Maryland Transportation Authority recently spent to resurface the access road for the agency's administrative building off I-95 in Perryville seems a little extravagant, given the situation. Times are tough. People are looking for work. Government budgets are tight. And it wouldn't be hard to find a list of safety improvements that need to be made on roadways in Harford and Cecil counties (Yes, we know, that money comes out of another pot)
