The Maryland Stadium Authority voted Tuesday to approve a $100,000 feasibility study to examine the financial viability of building a soccer stadium that could be used to lure a Major League Soccer franchise. The study, after a lengthy negotiation between the city and the Maryland Stadium Authority, will be paid for entirely by the city of Baltimore. In September, Mayor Sheila Dixon wrote a letter to the Maryland Stadium Authority asking that it consider a 42-acre waterfront Westport project as a potential site for a soccer complex that could hold between 17,000 and 20,000 people and be used to attract D.C. United into making Baltimore its permanent home.

The Eastern and Western Baltimore County Bike/Pedestrian Plan has recommended the development of on-road bike lanes and off-road shared-use path along Cromwell Bridge Road as a primary spoke off the new Towson Bike Beltway. This trail would connect the growing bike facility network providing access to parks, schools, neighborhoods and more. A feasibility study would be the first step toward making this trail a reality. The feasibility study would look at possible routes across the landscape, identify ways to avoid and minimize impacts to sensitive environmental features, identify possible enhancements and mitigation measures that will improve the environment and study the potential costs.

The push for joint civilian-military use of an airfield at Aberdeen Proving Ground is close to being cleared for takeoff. As a feasibility study nears completion, officials are exploring development options for the oft-derailed project, which the county bowed out of four years ago and which has drawn criticism from the community and some base officials. For nearly 20 years, the Army has considered the prospect of opening Phillips Army Airfield - its 10,000-foot runway is one of the longest on the East Coast - to civilian and commercial traffic.

Isaiah House won't be one of the students who walks through the doors of the newly renovated Pimlico Elementary/Middle School in a few years, but he jumped at the opportunity Wednesday to propose what he thought those who come after him should see and experience. "I think there should be a meditation room," the eighth-grader told his classmates as they pored over a blueprint of their current school. "So when the little kids are having a hard day, they can go in there and calm down.

Julie Drabenstadt lives two minutes from the Savage library, but the branch is small and often crowded. Children's classes often fill up before Drabenstadt can get her 4-year-old daughter registered, and she frequently has to wait for materials to be sent from elsewhere. "It seems like a lot of the books I want have to come from the Central and Glenwood branches," said Drabenstadt, who often goes to the county's larger libraries. Elkridge residents have expressed similar complaints about their branch.

Sykesville is designing a new intersection at Route 32 to improve access to the Warfield Complex, a former hospital site that the town expects to redevelop as a multimillion-dollar business and academic center. The town also is funding a feasibility study with a state university and focusing its attention on the Lane Building, often considered the most marketable of the 14 Warfield buildings. The two projects will be conducted while the state completes roads, a power station and water and sewer lines for its new police training center, which adjoins the Warfield Complex.

On an evening when the weather was unseasonably warm, the Edgewater Elementary School cafeteria was uncomfortably stuffy. Doors were opened to allow cooler air inside, providing some relief for dozens of parents, students and staff who assembled last week to hear a preliminary report on air quality at the school. Moments later, it was the report's findings that seemed to make many people uncomfortable. Parents said despite the fact that an independent consulting firm plans to take steps to control the mold growth it discovered in the school, they are still concerned about health issues for students.

Warfield, a group of 13 former hospital buildings on 96 acres along Route 32 in Sykesville, is the best site for economic development in Carroll County, according to a $50,000 town-commissioned feasibility study released yesterday. "It has character, good highway access, and a fast-growing base of skilled commuters who have the potential to be a strong in-county work force," the study says. The 37-page document was written by Marsha R.B. Schachtel, senior fellow at the Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies; Richard P. Clinch, director of economic research at the Jacob France Institute of the University of Baltimore; and Matthew Kachura, research manager at the Jacob France Institute.

For years, one group of arts lovers has dreamed of building a "world-class" performance hall in Annapolis. And for just as long, a second group has wanted to renovate and expand the performing arts center the city already has. The future of those dreams may depend on the findings of a feasibility study that the Maryland Stadium Authority is launching this summer. Seeking the best way to support a thriving arts community in Annapolis, state officials have asked Crossroads Consulting Services LLC of Tampa, Fla., to look at options for accommodating local performing groups and their patrons.

Three Western Maryland health systems said Tuesday they have signed a letter of intent to form an alliance as they prepare for changes in the way hospitals deliver care under health reform. The alliance formed by Frederick Regional Health System, Meritus Health and Western Maryland Health System will explore ways the hospitals can partner to better care for patients and find cost savings in ways such as combining management and clinical services. The systems have not yet formalized the affiliation and are not bound until final documents are approved by their boards.

When a study published last September concluded a transit bridge connecting the Columbia villages of Town Center and Oakland Mills was too costly, proponents of the plan, called Bridge Columbia, were not deterred. Even though some groups may haven taken the report as a signal to scale back, Friends of Bridge Columbia did the exact opposite. "We've been doing two things since then, expanding and explaining," said Fred Gottemoeller, a lead proponent of the group. Now, a year after the original plan was rebuffed, the group is raising support for a new iteration of the plan, which calls for the replacement of the existing footbridge over Route 29 in favor of "an iconic, landmark" transit bridge.

In her first 100 days on the job, Howard County schools Superintendent Renee Foose has revamped the system's legal services, established an office of accountability and called for revision of a redistricting proposal to shift hundreds of students to new schools, a move that some parents have decried. Foose is steadily imposing her management approach on the 50,000-student system as she attempts to fulfill promises to make it more transparent and accessible - directives spelled out in the entry plan she unveiled as she took over July 1. Perhaps the most controversial move she has made involves the redistricting plan.
