Some notes from the Webmaster

12 March 2018
GCC president, Dan Scholfield, vice-president Torrey Jacobsen, and secretary Bess Sharland and several interested citizens, met with County Councilman, Andrew Pruski and developers of the Waugh Chapel Business Park.

The developers showed plans for putting large structures for businesses behind the general area near Waugh Chapel south, Wegmans.

After each person had explained what their respective offices were responsible for, there were a lot of questions and answers. The topics were about why route 3 is so often a parking lot, the new developments of the Enclave at Crofton and River Walk at Crofton and what the impact of these developments will have on the traffic situation.

After this part of the meeting was over and various people were talking to the speakers, the GCC elected officers for the 2018 year.

Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen

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.
