IN THEIR WISDOM and sensitivity, the Great Thinkers at City Hall last week voted to spend $250,000 to build a family sports complex on Park Heights Avenue. This is news to cheer. The sports complex will be located precisely three blocks from the old Pimlico branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. This is news to drive a city out of its mind. That library branch was officially shut down just weeks ago. The city said it did not have the $290,000 budgeted to keep it open. Simple math shows a difference of $40,000 between funding the old library and funding the opening of the new sports center.

Baltimore may proceed with a proposed sports complex development south of the city's baseball and football stadiums after a Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that an earlier condemnation settlement will stand. The yearlong battle over the property -- which began when the city sued to take it through eminent domain last year -- has been noteworthy in part because the city has said the property is also a leading site for a slots casino. Baltimore Development Corp., which oversees development for the city, sought proposals to develop the 11-acre warehouse district, which is roughly bounded by Russell Street and the Patapsco, and is south of M&T Bank Stadium.

There's a bar, a smattering of graffiti and a layer of broken glass at Reisterstown Road and Woodland Avenue in Northwest Baltimore. None of which suggest sports, much less golf. But community leaders hope to build a 250-yard driving range, a miniature golf course, a restaurant, and basketball and tennis courts at the intersection in the belief that a sports complex will lead to the revitalization of the neighborhood. The group, a mix of politicians, residents and developers, has collected about $2.2 million from various sources, including almost $1.8 million from the city of Baltimore, and estimates that it will need to raise several hundred thousand more dollars to complete the Park Heights Family Sports Complex by 2003.

Most mornings, students arrive early at City Springs Elementary/Middle School to throw a football around on the blacktop. They love the game, but it is hard to play in the raggedy yard behind the school. The students of the school had a plan back in 2007. A group wrote a letter and gathered signatures, then handed it to the principal at a morning assembly. "The complex outside has many things wrong with it," they wrote. "It is outlined with a very uneven grass, it has broken glass on the rocky concrete, a broken gate, a swing set without swings, a basketball court with only one goal and it is very trashy.

Hundreds of Annapolis-area tennis players are unhappy that they're going to be bounced off the indoor courts at the Naval Academy at the end of March, when the school will cancel what the players say were billed as lifetime tennis memberships at the Brigade Sports Complex. The players are burning up phone lines, e-mail and more, as they try to save their access to the coveted indoor courts. "My impression is that if they don't make this right, that the Naval Academy has just created a lot of ill will in the community," BSC tennis member Donna O'Malley said.

The decision to build a new arena - where it should be, how big it should be, and what it becomes known for - represents a choice about the city's future: Is Baltimore going to remain a midlevel city with midlevel ambitions and feeble self-esteem, or will it become bigger, bolder and totally major-league? This whole business of the new arena is a symbolic test of the desire of Baltimoreans to snap out of 40 years of mostly small-think with an aggressive push to a robust urban future that probably none of us can imagine right now. I'm not just talkin' sports.
