Residents' suggestions to move a proposed skateboard park and multipurpose building farther away from existing neighborhoods when the southern portion of Blandair Park is built in Columbia won approval from a citizens committee planning the project. The county Recreation and Parks board is to vote Wednesday night on whether to approve that recommendation at a 7 p.m. meeting at departmental headquarters, at 7120 Oakland Mills Road. The issue brought out dozens of people at a September hearing who objected to a consultant's plans to place those facilities at the park's eastern edge.

Roofs can be made of metal, slate, asphalt shingles or rubber membranes, among other materials. But the newest structure on Baltimore's waterfront will have a roof covered largely with sedum - hardy plants that stay green in summer or winter. That's one of the environmentally friendly features of the Mikulski Workforce Development Center, a multipurpose building under construction on the grounds of the Living Classrooms Foundation, just east of the Inner Harbor. The nonprofit foundation was established in 1985 to provide hands-on education and job training to students from diverse backgrounds, with an emphasis on "at-risk" youth.

Although Carroll Community College students have compared their new campus to a shopping mall, the $13.5 million structure has received accolades from a slew of others, including Gov.
