SMCM Hosts Public Mtg. Wednesday to Showcase Current Capital Projects


ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. (April 20, 2010)—The Capital Design Advisory Committee (CDA) of St. Mary’s College of Maryland (SMCM) and Historic St. Mary’s City (HSMC) will hold a public meeting Wednesday, April 21, at 7 p.m. at the HSMC Auditorium. The CDA will present information to the community about a number of capital improvements planned by the college and HSMC. Included will be an update of the replacement of Anne Arundel Hall and the new Maryland Heritage Interpretive Center (Visitor’s Center), the relocation of Margaret Brent Hall, a new HSMC woodshop, Chancellor’s Point, and an update on the proposed traffic calming for Route 5.

Margaret Brent Hall is proposed to be moved from its current position next to Anne Arundel Hall to the Campus Center parking lot, which will be expanded into the adjacent field. The new “green” Margaret Brent Hall will house the philosophy and religious studies department and aims for completion during the summer of 2012. The new HSMC woodshop would be housed over the burned-down barn adjacent to the existing Visitor’s Center, a project that aims to be completed in 2011. A building at Chancellor’s Point will be turned into a site to house HSMC and college environmental and academic programs. The update on the proposed traffic calming will include information on upcoming community involvement planned for the fall.

The CDA was created by SMCM and HSMC to provide an interface for community input to their capital development planning. The CDA is charged with seeking public comment in its review of master plan and design proposals for major capital improvement and landscape projects on the St. Mary’s College campus and the grounds of HSMC. Membership of the CDA includes representatives from community organizations, the college, and the historic city.
