Thanks to a collaborative partnership with Severn area community stakeholders, Anne Arundel County, Department of Aging, Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County, Anne Arundel Local Development Council, and the State of Maryland, Arundel Community Development Services, Inc. (ACDS) is coordinating the development of a brand new 26,000 square foot facility that will be a welcoming space for all community members in the Severn area and feature:
(1) a state-of-the-art Boys & Girls Club, which will include a full size gymnasium and Teen Club;
(2) a regional Senior Activity Center, which will host educational programs, recreational activities, health screenings, as well as classes in art, crafts, computer use, dance, and other topics for the older adults; and
(3) flexible community space that can be used as a venue for community meetings and programming for local residents of all ages.
In addition, the exterior space is being designed to be open to the community with a welcoming and clearly defined accessible path furnished with seating, plantings, and outdoor art.
