2016 Capital Investments
The Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company is one of the busiest companies in Baltimore County. Its firehouse was built in 1962, and, although renovated in 2003 to accommodate larger fire-fighting equipment, the company’s living space is in great need of renovation. The renovations supported by the bond bill, which I sponsored last year, will include a larger community meeting room to serve the local community and neighborhood organizations.
Lake Roland Park, located in the southeast part of the district, off of Falls Road, is a marvelous outdoor retreat located in an otherwise urban area. With the addition of an Education Center, it will be a learning opportunity as well as a recreational opportunity. I co-sponsored the bond bill that passed in 2015 to help fund the new center. Groundbreaking took place in October 2015, and the facility will be complete by fall 2016.
Jewish Community Center of Baltimore – Gordon Center for the Performing Arts – Funding will be used for repairing, renovating, and updating the Gordon Center for the Performing Arts, located in Owings Mills. The Gordon Center is a premier entertainment venue that showcases a wide range of amazing performances.
