THE ISSUE: Annapolis officials are trying to persuade Maryland to locate a new horse park on 2,000 acres of public land in Crownsville, outside the city limits.

The city is vying with Cecil County for the park, which will have a 5,000-seat arena, an outdoor amphitheater and a museum.

But Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens opposes the Annapolis bid, saying the site lacks the infrastructure to support a horse park. The site includes the shuttered Crownsville Hospital Center complex, the reservoir at the old Annapolis waterworks and the nearby U.S. Naval Academy dairy farm.
