For summertime, there's a lot of news about our schools in our recent newsletters. That's because ensuring that our public schools are the best that they can be is one of my top priorities as Councilman.
I'm excited to see progress on the school overcrowding issue -- with support from the County Executive and the County Council and your input and involvement, we have a comprehensive solution to overcrowding in Southwest Baltimore County.
Also make sure to read to the end of today's newsletter for a great new resource to take advantage of the great outdoors in our community.
Design released for Catonsville Elementary
The design for the new Catonsville Elementary School at Bloomsbury was released on July 8th. The plan will update the existing building at Bloomsbury (in brown in the above diagram) and supplement it with a new addition (blue in diagram).
The new school will have a 700 student capacity. The historic features of the old building will be preserved, while the entire school will be updated with air conditioning and new safety features and be made accessible for those with disabilities.
The boundary change process is slated to begin in June 2015 and the school will open for August 2016.
To see the designs in more detail, you can can download the presentation at the BCPS website

|Summer fun: Hit the trail!|
Baltimore County just launched a new website to help residents find walking and jogging paths near them. Taking advantage of these trails is a great way to get exercise, spend quality time with friends and family, and enjoy the sites of Baltimore County.
