Superblock panel plans to finish work this month

A committee of area residents and business officials working with the county to convey what the community wants to see developed on the 5.6-acre Superblock expects to complete its work this month.

The community has agreed to a mixed-use development that would include a public-use area, such as an outdoor stage, plus residences, stores and perhaps offices.

The committee may be done soon enough to discuss its work at the March 18 Glen Burnie Urban Renewal Advisory Committee meeting, said Patricia Barland, the county's commercial revitalization manager and the committee's leader.

More than a decade ago, the county hoped to put an office, shopping and parking complex on the site that fronts Ritchie Highway near Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. Last

year, several developers said that only a primarily residential complex would work financially there. Meanwhile, the county has paved a small part of the block.

Proposals from developers interested in developing the lot will be evaluated by the county, probably by fall.

High schoolers perform with symphony

The students, chosen in auditions, rehearsed since early January.
