City, School Board Discuss Compromise Street Garage

Greater Annapolis reports:

Officials from from Annapolis and the Anne Arundel County School Board are going to continue talking about the possibility of building of parking garage near Annapolis Elementary School.

But the project is just short of an official memorandum of understanding between the city and the school system that would allow the project to officially move forward.

The city wants to build a parking garage along Compromise Street partially where the public playground and a portion of the school’s play area currently stand.

The project quickly met with opposition from parents and residents who started a petition against the garage and to keep the playground as part of any project that proceeds.

City officials are hoping to cooperate with the school board and build the garage in conjunction with an upcoming renovation and expansion of the school.

The school board did not sign a memorandum, but instead agreed to continue to have staff members work with city officials.

Board President Patricia Nalley, along with several other members, said the students are their foremost concern—especially their safety.
