Response Notes

Responsive to this request, we have been unable to locate additional records related to such a site. This list appears to have been presented by a citizen/community group during public forum on February 2, 2002. A search of minutes from subsequent meetings resulted in a mention of the list again at a February 21, 2002, Board of Education meeting: https://www.boarddocs.com/mabe/hcpssmd/Board.nsf/legacy-content/83NMDN4D72E7/$FILE/02-21-02%20Reg%20BOE%20Mtg.pdf. However, no supporting documentation regarding consideration of a site in Elkridge was located in either Board records or School Planning/Operations records.
