Panel reviews boundary plans for high school

January 22, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A committee of Baltimore County parents, community leaders and educators presented two proposals last night for the enrollment boundaries of the county's first new high school in 25 years.

More than 275 parents packed an auditorium at Deer Park Middle Magnet School to review the proposals for New Town High School - being built to alleviate crowding at Randallstown and Owings Mills highs. The committee makes its recommendation to the school superintendent Feb. 10, and the school board is expected to decide the matter March 25.

New Town will be open next school year, with up to 1,348 students.

The first plan designates a northern border running along Reisterstown Road, Owings Mills Boulevard, Red Run Stream and Deer Park Road, stretching to the county line. The boundary runs south along the county line to Old Court Road, east along Old Court and Granite Road, then veers to the northeast. At Horsehead Branch Stream, it runs east and ends at Reisterstown Road.

The alternative differs only in the inclusion of the Kentmar subdivision's 196 undeveloped lots on Pleasant Hill Road on the north, with the eastern border ending at Interstate 795.
