Sykesville plans to get two projects, including improvements to Burkett Park, started by the end of summer.
The town has asked contractors to submit bids for improvements to the park, a 7-acre site near Norris Avenue, and for repaving Second Avenue.
Plans call for construction of a 4-foot-wide asphalt path along the park perimeter, making it accessible to the disabled and more comfortable for joggers and strollers.
A $19,800 Program Open Space grant will pay for much of the park project and allow for the purchase of several trees to be planted this fall.
The public works department has budgeted a pavement overlay and repairs to Second Avenue.
"We have put both projects out to bid and hope to award them sometime next month," said Matthew H. Candland, town manager.
Sykesville: Firefighters responded to a carbon monoxide alarm in the 6900 block of Cable Drive at 8: 39 p.m. Tuesday. Units were out 25 minutes.
