"Six years ago, more than 400 Randallstown residents attended a public meeting to map out the future of their community. They identified a community center as a number one priority. This had to be a center that would enrich the lives of the young and old alike. One that would provide structure for children after school, give senior citizens the chance to be active in the heart of their community, and offer classes and technology training," said Smith.
The idea to have a community center built originated in 2003 from community meetings that began with the Urban Design Assistance Team (UDAT). During the UDAT process, the Baltimore County Office of Community Conservation sponsored a public meeting to gather input on the proposed community center, and Councilman Ken Oliver established a standing committee to explore various programming and building options.
“Throughout the process, there was incredible community and government collaboration on many levels. State and federal participation were essential. And finally today, after six years of hard work, we celebrate all that investment and collaboration – this state of the art Community Center – designed, built, and programmed as the people of Randallstown envisioned,” said Oliver.
Total cost of the project was $13 million, including $2.9 million in state funding and a $400,000 federal grant, secured by Senator Barbara Mikulski, to fund the technology center and computer room.
