Poll: What's Your Vision for Race Road?

Tell us what you would put on Race Road near the railroad tracks.

The Greater Elkridge Community Association (GECA) is seeking community input on potential developments along Race Road.

Currently, Laurel Sand and Gravel  at 6330 Race Rd.

At the same time, CSX is considering building a train-truck depot called an "" there.

After a recent meeting on the topic, GECA President Howard Johnson said he'd like more input. 

GECA—which advocates for Hanover, Jessup and Elkridge residents—has hundreds of members who can't always make it to meetings, so the organization is asking for your opinion in our online poll.

How about a community pool? If you've got 300 homes within a 1/4 mile, why not something that serves the community? Maybe a nature center that partners with the local schools to promote ecological awareness. I realize that these are not profit makers for cash happy HoCo lawmakers, but it sure would be good PR.

Why is this even being debated?. What has happened to the control over development and how can we stop howard county from becoming another overdeveloped eyesore? If anyone has any ideas please let me know. thanks

Hanover/East Elkridge is one of the least developed areas for Howard county residents when it comes to recreational areas. Why not build a nice bike/walking path through the area and some basketball/tennis courts. Maybe a few pavilions for get togethers. Race road is dangerous due to the traffic + bikes plus curves and the local residents don't have any where to safely walk or bike to close by. .

Tony great idea, there is one of these sights in the Baltimore County adjacent to the light rail stop, two toilets, tennis, horse pits, etc. Hanover could use one of these real bad. Very reasonable to rent for a private party.
