A 26-year-old Shiloh Run homeowner was sworn in late Tuesday to fill the vacant seat on the Hampstead Town Council.David E. Bredenburg was appointed by the council to serve out the term of Jacqueline Hyatt, a four-year councilwoman who resigned Oct. 10. Ms. Hyatt essentially had agreed with the council's "slow-growth" agenda but not necessarily with members' aggressive pursuit of that agenda.The newest councilman said yesterday that he shares the council's concerns about rapid growth outpacing the town's ability to provide adequate facilities, such as sufficient water and waste treatment.

HAMPSTEAD'S TOWN government is on the verge of enacting legislation that will rein in residential development until adequate public infrastructure is in place. It is a clear-minded response to the development free-for-all of the past decade that has burdened the eastern Carroll County town's roads, water and sewer systems and public schools.Two ordinances are key to Hampstead's program to manage growth. Under Ordinance 269, the town's planning and zoning commission could not grant subdivision approval if any of the public services -- roads, schools, emergency services, recreation and utilities -- are deemed inadequate.
