ENDORSEMENT OF UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY VISION 2030
Signing Ceremony Monday, February 8th

The University Community Vision 2030 establishes a vision, goals and strategies shared by the City of College Park, the University of Maryland, state and county officials, and community leaders, for a more thriving, equitable, and sustainable College Park.

Developed through a months-long input process, the vision builds upon the work of the 2020 University District Vision over the last decade. Much progress has been made in Housing and Development, Transportation, Education, Public Safety, and Sustainability since 2011. Among the accomplishments were the founding of College Park Academy and a robust Homeownership Program; expansion of university policing and the student code of conduct; implementation of phase 1 of reconstructing Baltimore Avenue; the Purple Line light rail; and increased walkability.

The new, University Community Vision 2030, outlines areas for future progress: Housing and Development, Transportation and Mobility, Public Health and Safety, and Education. The values of sustainability and equity will run through all of this work.

What: State Senator Jim Rosapepe, Delegates Joseline Peña-Melnyk, Ben Barnes, Mary Lehman, (District 21) County Councilmembers Tom Dernoga and Dannielle Glaros, will join Mayor Patrick Wojahn and University of Maryland President Darryll Pines in endorsing the University Community Vision 2030

When: Monday, February 8th, 7:00pm

Where: Virtually (please contact Valerie Woodall at vwoodall@collegeparkpartnership.org for Zoom link)
