MIDDLE RIVER, MD—A new northeastern Baltimore County high school is one step closer to becoming a reality.
At this week’s session of the Baltimore County Council, Council Chairperson Cathy Bevins announced that over 30 acres have been donated to the county for the development of the new school.
The property, which is located along Ebenezer Road near Greenleigh at Crossroads, features over 30 acres, two ball fields, and a park. The ball fields and park will be for the Bird River Road community.
The project has the backing of the Essex-Middle River Civic Council as well as the Essex-Middle River Roundtable, according to Councilwoman Bevins.
“I thank Councilwoman Bevins for her persistence in pushing for this long-needed site,” said Fifth District Councilman David Marks. “Constructing a new high school has been a goal for me and for others in the community for 20 years. We are now one step closer to that goal.”
