On December 23rd, 2011 I posted Connecting the Dots: Upper Marlboro seeks input on historic school’s fate - Washington Business Journal.
The Prince George's County Historical Society and the Town of Upper Marlboro are sponsoring an informational gathering on the issue regarding the Old Marlboro Elementary School (originally built as the Marlboro High School in 1921) at 14524 Elm Street, Upper Marlboro.
This meeting will be held on THURSDAY, 16 FEBRUARY 2012, at 7:00 p.m., at the Parish Hall of Trinity Church, 14519 Church Street in Upper Marlboro.
As you may have read, the County is considering demolishing the school building in order to build in its place a new Family Justice Center - there are logistical problems regarding the site, and because the school property is a designated Historic Site under the County's Historic Preservation Ordinance, it is important that we have a good public discussion of the issue before the case comes before the Historic Preservation Commission the following week. We are sending out notice of this meeting to a number of organizations and individuals who should have an interest in the subject. Any ideas you have on the subject will be much appreciated. Steve Sonnett, President of the Town of Upper Marlboro Commissioners, is preparing a press release on the subject.
Please be sure that your organization is represented at this meeting! INFORMATIONAL MEETING ON THE OLD MARLBORO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2012, 7:00 P.M. TRINITY EPISCOPAL CHURCH, PARISH HOUSE 14519 CHURCH STREET, UPPER MARLBORO
