Havre de Grace is on the scoreboard.
But the game is still in the early innings.
Harford County Executive and Havre de Grace resident David Craig recently used a similar analogy when explaining the community's standing in what will be a lengthy quest for a new high school.
Havre de Grace City Councilman David Glenn relayed that sentiment Monday night: "I’ve got to tell you, the county executive told me the other night, 'You’re a long time baseball coach. All you got through was the pre-season. We have a long way to go to get to the World Series.'"
Havre de Grace was included in the Harford County Board of Education's capital improvement plan, which was passed last week. The school is queued up for more than $3 million in county funding for the beginning stages of new school construction.
That funding, though, will have to be approved by Harford County Council. Glenn said Monday he is preparing to work with County Councilwoman Mary Ann Lisanti, who represents Havre de Grace, on figuring out a timeline for upcoming meetings.
The current Havre de Grace High School is located in two buildings on either side of Congress Avenue.
The community has spoken out regarding a number of issues they see with the building, inluding the following:
- Hurst: Repeated Calls For Service at High School
- Brown: More To It Than Simply Being 'Our Turn'
- Students Point Out Health Concerns at Havre de Grace High School
- Havre de Grace High School Parents Seek a Safe and Secure Learning Enviroment
