Howard County last week hosted the first of three workshops designed to gather public input into capital projects and improvements for downtown Ellicott City, and another is set for next week.
The first workshop was held Sept. 12 at St. Paul’s Church. Additional sessions will be Sept. 26 and Oct. 10 at the Roger Carter Community Center, 3000 Milltowne Drive in Ellicott City; both will begin at 7 p.m.
This year, the county included $3 million in the county’s capital budget for sidewalks, curbs and other projects to beautify and improve the Tiber River basin and its amenities. A portion of the money is also planned for water quality and drainage projects.
TND Planning Group has been retained to facilitate discussions of the various projects and to solicit other ideas from the community.
In addition to the meetings, residents can also follow developments on Facebook at www.facebook.com/planellicottcity.
