Today Elkridge is getting a brand new library. But they won’t be getting a new high school.
When the BOE voted 4-3 to choose the Mission Road site for the 13th high school in the system, a lot of hopes were dashed in Elkridge. I feel for them. Evidence suggests that Elkridge has been at the end of the line for many things in Howard County. And Elkridge residents are mighty tired of this.
I know that these decisions are complicated. I know that there are good reasons on either side. I also know that there is a long-standing feeling that Elkridge “don’t get no respect” in Howard County and that this is just one more decision among many that stings.
