Anne Arundel Community College will expand its Glen Burnie campus next year to include a commercial kitchen, science and computer laboratories, and more classrooms, a college vice president announced yesterday.

Andrew Meyer, the vice president for continuing education, work force and institutional development, said at a meeting of the Glen Burnie Town Center Advisory Committee that the expansion would be completed in time for the 1999 fall semester.

"It will be a nice event for the year 2000," he said.

The new commercial kitchen will allow the college to start a hotel and restaurant management program at the Glen Burnie campus. Meyer, noting the growing number of hotels near Baltimore-Washington International Airport, said the program will "support the industry in North County."

The college's North County branch was last expanded two years ago, when a $1.1 million renovation doubled its space at Arundel Center North, at Crain Highway and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard.

In other action, entrepreneurs Tim Konig and Chris Allison presented their plans to reopen in March or April the old Shark's Tooth Bar at 610 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. as a restaurant and bar called the Judge's Chambers.

The board unanimously supported their plans.
