Questions unanswered in plan for old school I am surprised and somewhat perturbed by the tone of the article written by Childs Walker in the coverage of proposals received for the Old Hampstead Elementary School ("Hampstead council OKs building transfer," Aug. 16). I was inappropriately characterized as a "petition toting resident" in a "last minute protest." It is my belief that if legitimate questions exist on a government project, that citizens have the right to first receive accurate answers before the project moves forward.

The need for a bypass dominated a meeting last night of Manchester town officials and Carroll County commissioners. The wide-ranging session also included discussion of economic development, water and sewer resources, and neighborhood revitalization. "We're a little community up here swimming upstream," said Councilman Joe Jordan. "We've got growth to the north in another state altogether. We can't do much about that, I feel like I spend a lot of time in a reactive mode." "We've all been hoping for a long time for a bypass on Main Street," said Steven C. Horn, county planning director.

Sykesville Mayor Jonathan S. Herman has said he is willing to talk about annexing Eldersburg, but that he doubts the idea will move beyond discussion. At their bimonthly meeting, members of the Town Council bantered, often lightheartedly, about the annexation proposal made by two Eldersburg residents several months ago. "We would be the mouse that ate the elephant," said Councilwoman Debby Ellis. "It will be a good item for our next newsletter." Councilman Charlie Mullins said, "As far as we know, only two people are interested in this."

Hampstead leaders who were nettled by several issues with the county say a public meeting has left them with assurances on economic development issues, but not on the future of the old Hampstead Elementary School. The Town Council succeeded in getting the county commissioners to promise safety improvements on Route 30 north of town, where North Carroll Shopping Center and its soon-to-open Wal-Mart will bring hundreds more cars every day. The commissioners agreed to put in writing the verbal agreement with Sweetheart Cup Co. that any future expansion of its new site south of town would be allowed only if the company dedicates land for the future Hampstead bypass.
