That sounds real intelligent, another 4 to 7 thousand people trying to use Church St., Ritchie Hwy. and Ordinance Rd. The only 95 acres I can think of that the city owns is the land-fill and the old dump where the trolley cars were or the tannery. Dam shame, that was a great piece of woods before the land-fill ruined the plateaus. I guess the kids of Brooklyn and "Curtis on the Bay" will have to stay on the concrete till they get to Patuxent.

Actually, the plan includes a large area to be devoted to walking trails and parks for kids, and an outlet onto Pennington Ave. This project will be an asset to both the city and county neighborhoods if the city allows for road repaving and building up of the Curtis bay area. I, for one, am looking forward to not seeing the Police helicopters searching for the dirt bike riders, illegal hunters, etc. flying over this property!

ALso, do you know many of the children in the area? I would guess not, only the ones who commit crimes seem to get noticed these days. Maybe you should check out the students of the new Baybrook Academy and how they are moving forward in their lives, how they have been a driving force in the changing of that school. Why put children down for the economic difficulties their parents face? Maybe you should act to help lower class children instead of just putting them down for where they live.

Curtis bay is a crime filled hole with no police patrols, no community leadership and drugs. Being lower class doesn't mean people can act and treat property the way they do. It will only get worse here with the redevelopment of westport and washington village, the trash will move right in just like after the fairfield projects and murphy homes projects being torn down did the same. People who don't notice don't realize it because they are in denial of a community getting worse. How many shootings are needed for people to wake up. This houses will not do a damn thing to make curtis bay better. That is the truth.
