A group of University of Maryland graduate students is putting together a comprehensive report on needed improvements in Lakeland.
For College Park to maintain its charm, Campus Village Shoppes must stay alive.
College Park has only ever used urban renewal in Lakeland — a historically African American neighborhood in the city — in 1970.
The commission was formed with a focus on the city, but consultants are pushing for the commission to focus on Lakelanders themselves.
The mayor and two city staff members will also participate in a semester-long fellowship discussing how to achieve racial justice through city planning.
Among other goals, the plan seeks to educate College Park residents on the history of Lakeland, a historically Black neighborhood in the city.
The committee seeks to address the city's history of oppression of the Lakeland community.
