Legislators seek state money for Radebaugh park project in Towson
Two state legislators are filing bond bills to help Baltimore County buy property owned by Radebaugh Florist & Greenhouses, in Towson, for use as a county park.

Last week introduce a bill (SB 183) to require seat belts on our school buses. Watching videos of kids becoming projectiles during an accident is horrifying. The bill can be found online at: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/frmMain.aspx?pid=billpage&tab=subject3&id=sb0183&stab=01&ys=2016RS
UPDATE: The bill is scheduled to be heard in the Senator Judicial Proceedings Committee on February 2nd at 1:00pm. If interested in coming down to support, or want to send written testimony, please email me at email@example.com
I am pleased to give you an update on SHA’s $3 million project to replace the bridge carrying MD 25 (Falls Road) over Georges Run near Gunpowder Road.
Weather permitting, the new bridge will open to traffic on or about Friday evening, January 11. The State Highway Administration and the contractor will place digital message signs on the approaches to the bridge to advise drivers when the bridge is open.
The contractor, A-Del Construction, Inc. of Newark, DE will return this spring to repair and resurface roadway pavement in the vicinity of the bridge.
Below is a pre-game picture from Gunpowder Valley Conservancy’s Better Waterways event on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015 at Loch Raven Reservoir. Huge thank you to the organizers, the 33 volunteers who came out to help including Towson University students, and , REI (Timonium, MD) for sponsoring (and their employees). 1,175 lbs of trash from .25 miles of Loch Raven Reservoir shore line were removed!!

November 14, 2015: Below is a picture of the results of several hours of hard work picking up trash off Hollow Road in Cockeysville near the Loch Raven Reservoir. We removed several tires, hundreds of bottles, a motor for a boat, and other random articles of trash. It was a lot of fun, and I appreciate effort of those who came out to help. Looking forward to the next stream clean-up project!
