13 June 2017 GCC Meeting
The Greater Crofton Council met to plan the2017 National Night Out Against Crime. Present were Dan Scholfield, Ben LaPointe, Bess and Jean Sharland and Mike Sweeney. Vice President Torrey Jacobsen was working. Those present were very pleased to welcome Ben, who had not been able to attend several meetings.
9 May 2017 GCC Meeting
In the absence of President Dan Scholfield and Vice President Torrey Jacobsen, Secretary Bess Sharland called the meeting to order. Bess then introduced the evening's speaker, Councilman Andrew Pruski.
Council Pruski noted that the recently passed County Budget had increased the funding for the schools, fire department, and health care. He felt that the police department and some others had needed more money, as well as more for health care.
The county's Budget will include fifty-eight million dollars for Crofton High School, which will open in 2020 or 2021. Odenton, Davidsonville and Crofton schools will be re-districted at about the same time, if not before. Each of these schools will appoint a representative to the re-districting committee. Possibly, Millersville Elementary School students will be sent to Arundel Junior and Senior High Schools. Other elementary schools feeding in to both Arundel and South River High Schools will shift their attendance areas. The Councilman urged that citizens attend hearings to be held to obtain citizen opinions when the new boundaries are being set. He added he had "no idea how this will turn out". The possibility of building a "Russett High School" has been mentioned.
The Councilman favors more investment in the Laurel area, bringing the area more than the race track. Some of the area still needs water and sewer services. (Mr. Pruski regrets that the Laurel area has been known for prostitution at its hotels for years.)
He commented on the local landfills' status. The Cunningham-Tolson landfill had its permit approved, and rubble is being dumped there, with some trucks coming from New York and New Jersey. The Halle landfill in Odenton needs access to operate, which requires some added property. Mr Pruski thought that the neighbors "will never give access".
Turning to traffic on Route 3 (and other roads), the councilman suggested a "transport forum" in which traffic and related issues could be "made an issue". He mentioned that although Route 3 is controlled by the State, local Delegates "do nothing" to improve its conditions.

Crofton Night Out - 5 August 2014
The Greater Crofton Council (GCC) recently donated $10,000 to assist with the preservation, protection and promotion of the Historic Linthicum Walks farmhouse and grounds, located next to the
Crofton Middle School. Pictured are Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen. Linthicum Walks dates to the mid-1700's and consists of a frame farmhouse built on
a stone foundation, embodying the distinctive Tidewater architectural characteristics of early Maryland. The grounds also contain a family cemetery. The Friends of Linthicum Walks at Crofton will
hold a General Membership meeting at the farmhouse later this Spring. Linthicum Walks is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the Maryland Historic Trust.
