An architect last night told the Crofton Civic Association board that the athletic field they are considering as a site for a new Town Hall won't work because the state is unlikely to approve a new entrance on Davidsonville Road.
Jon Grant, a Crofton resident advising the Civic Association's ADA committee, said it would be difficult to persuade the State Highway Administration to permit an entrance off Davidsonville Road for the proposed Town Hall at Albert O. Hardy Field because it already has heavy traffic.
Mr. Grant suggested that the civic association board look at an alternative two-acre site next Crofton Elementary School owned by the school board that would be easier for cars to access. He suggested swapping Hardy Field for the school board's property.
But the board president, Edwin F. Dosek, said he is still interested in pursuing Hardy Field as the site and asked that issues of zoning, sewer capacity, water service and utilities be studied.
Town Hall, on Crofton Parkway, is not in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and residents with disabilities have had trouble attending town functions.
