For Immediate Release

Annapolis, MD (October 24, 2016 ) -- County Executive Steve Schuh today announced that students from the University of Maryland have been tasked with designing a new park, public art display and logo for Odenton Town Center.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to have students develop amenities that will benefit the future residents of Odenton Town Center,” County Executive Schuh said. “We look forward to this park as a centerpiece of activity, including concerts, farmer’s markets and community events.”

The projects are part of the County’s participation in the Partnership for Action Learning in Sustainability (PALS) program. Students and faculty complete projects assigned by County government similar to consultant studies and reports. This year the students will work on 27 different projects, including designing a trail connection, a market study for Tipton Airport and a master plan for Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center.

The team of students is led by Landscape Architecture instructor Dennis Nola. They will present an overview of their work at a public meeting on Thursday, Nov. 3 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Western District Police Station located at 8273 Telegraph Road in Odenton. The final report and recommendations will be presented in December.
