It's great to see something positive happen on and around the water. It's a shame you didn't include the owner's name and address of the Seawitch company. I would love to send him something.

Randy, did you read the same article? It contains this phrase:...'the now-closed Seawitch Salvage Inc.' and further information WITH the owner's name, that he was CONVICTED, IMPRISONED and had a heart attack IN PRISON and is now DEAD. He AND the company NO LONGER EXIST.

Per an EPA report from 1997
"Seawitch Salvage and Kerry L. Ellis, Sr. of Pasadena, Md., president and owner of Seawitch Salvage Inc., of Baltimore were convicted on seven felony counts by a jury on May 30, in U.S. Court for the District of Maryland in Baltimore"

One great idea to build a contrate fishing peir.Like the one just over the bay bridge.This will give people young and old something to really enjoy.Marylanders love fishing and crabing.This would be great.Funding can come from a free for parking.This could pay for the clean-up

Bill984 hit the nail an the head. Along with the "No Hooker" sign, the should be "No Drug Dealing", "No car stealing", and "No Mugging". Afraid they will clean this up, spend $130m and end up 5 yrs later seeing another Patterson park, kids playing around needles and drug addicts.

One suggestion to the planners of this project is to make the park very visible from 895 and obscure the view of the marine terminal. The appearance of Baltimore from our highways is often overlooked during the planning stages of these projects and it is often the only impression that out of state travelers get. The only thing my relatives remember from there last pass through Baltimore was the nice view of the incinerator from 95.

I think this is great, but we have no anticipated date upon which to begin to see changes. Is there a date?

The anticipated date to see changes is probably NEVER.

This story is probably all talk.

Why would the state/city spend the 130 million to clear this site when less than a mile away is the city's worst reas for drug sale and violence? "Carol Eshelman, executive director of the nonprofit Brooklyn and Curtis Bay Coalition.

"This will put Brooklyn and Curtis Bay back on the map for something positive," she said."
What, are just building a park for the drug dealers of the area to have a nice water front veiw? We should place the focus and funds in-land, i.e. on the urban blight and the crime of the area first, before we waste the money on something that will just be destroyed by the near by drug crowd, and create just another un safe park area.
