Traffic calming measures are coming to the Glenside Farms neighborhood by the year's end, County Councilman David Marks announced Wednesday.
Baltimore County officials and the majority of residents in the eastern Perry Hall neighborhood have approved the plan, which calls for a raised intersection at Forge Haven Drive and Glen Summit Drive, and a brick speed bump near 5049 Forge Haven Drive. The measures come at a cost of about $30,000.
Marks said he had been working since May with the Department of Public Works and resident George Zurek to gather signatures and develop the plan.
"The Baltimore County Council recently approved a boost in funding for the traffic calming project, and it will allow engineers to build improvements like the ones planned for Glenside Farms," Marks stated in an email. "I would like to thank local resident George Zurek for working with the county to gather signatures, which is always necessary for approval."
The relationship between Glenside Farms and the Department of Public Works has been turbulent in recent years.
Patch reported last year on concrete barriers, between Good Spring Drive and New Gerst Lane, that frustrated some residents. At the time, public works officials and Marks stated they would continue to work closely with the neighborhood to resolve complaints.
