The Towson area will benefit from a new turf field at Towson High, additional police officers in downtown Towson and area school construction projects as part of the county’s fiscal year 2015 budget, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced Tuesday.

“This budget helps address two of the most consistent concerns I hear about Towson’s growth — public safety and the need to preserve and improve green space,” Councilman David Marks, who represents the 5th District, including Towson, said in a statement.

The artificial turf field is part of a $2 million budget item for fields at Towson High as well as Dundalk High and the new Catonsville Regional Park at Spring Grove State Hospital. The cost for the Towson High field specifically was not given.
