Poor Elkridge---the red headed stepchild. DPZ and HCPSS did not listen to the Elkridge community 5 years ago and now they find themselves in a fix. They did not plan for schools in the eastern corridor. First HCPSS said there was no money, but the county executive said he would provide whatever they needed if they would first use the money already in the kitty. But HCPSS chose to use it for renovation. Poor Elkridge. And yet there is land still available. But, HCPSS has not purchased sites for a high school, middle school and another elem. school. WHY? And why is it okay to put a middle school where an elementary school should not go? Why does Elkridge have to get saddled with a deal to increase density in return for a school site near train tracks and $4M? Why can't the HCPSS find better alternative sites? Maybe the people in charge of doing so should get off their duffs and get the job done! Perhaps they should be fired. I am tempted to take a reporter with me and knock on people's doors and ask them if they'd be willing to sell their land. It's there. I've made my own list because for whatever reason HCPSS will not come up with one of their own and share it. Makes me believe they don't have one and it is all BS. So I'll do the leg work and then I'll send the county my bill for services rendered. It is outrageous that there is no land in the land bank for the Route 1 corridor. And if the excuse is there is no land, then use the right of eminent domain on developer's property. Let's do what's right for the Elkridge community right NOW!
