Let’s Talk about Warfield: Online Community Information Sessions

Community engagement is an integral part of any large-scale historical preservation project like Warfield. It’s important to us that members of the Sykesville community be included in the conversation about Warfield’s future, so we’re organizing two 90-minute community information sessions via Zoom to update local residents on the status of the project and field questions, comments, and concerns. 

The sessions will take place on the following dates:

March 30, 2021, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM 

April 1, 2021, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM 

Each session will begin with a 30-minute overview of the history, current status, and future of the Warfield project. Specific topics will include:

  • The history of the property;
  • The current approved plan;
  • Possible future changes to the plan;
  • Project challenges and initiatives to advance the project;
  • A summary of the local real estate market;
  • The impact of the Warfield project on the Sykesville community;
  • The current political climate (state, county, and local).

The remainder of the session time will be devoted to answering questions and addressing comments and concerns. We ask that you submit your questions in advance so we can provide thoughtful and detailed answers. We want to be responsive and tailor our presentation to what the community wants to discuss.

Pre-registration is required for these sessions and spaces are limited to ensure maximum engagement, so if you’d like to participate, sign up now to reserve your spot.

Please note that these sessions are restricted to residents of Sykesville at this time. Future sessions may be added to include non-Sykesville residents.

We look forward to speaking with you and answering your questions in these sessions. If you’d like to keep up with all the latest Warfield news you can sign up for updates on our website, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Senate Bill 885: You Can Play an Important Role

On Wednesday, March 3, Senate Bill 885 was in front of Maryland’s Senate Budget and Tax Committee. We asked members of the community to assist in supporting the bill prior to the hearing, but this is just the beginning of the journey – there are still many ways you as a citizen can get involved to help this important legislation move forward.

The above video of the testimony for SB0885 is a great place to start for basic information about the Income Tax Credit for Catalytic Revitalization Projects. If you’d like to learn more about how you can support the bill, contact Steve McCleaf as soon as possible. No amount of support is too small – even something as simple as an email or letter to a legislator can make a big difference.
