Increased Traffic

The development planned at Forest and Spa is larger than the footprint of the Annapolis Towne Centre:

  • Approximately 500 housing units, including 130 non-age restricted townhomes and apartments
  • More than 170,000 sq. ft. of commercial space including an 80 room hotel
  • More than 1,000 new residents, requiring over 1,400 parking places
  • One of 18 developments pending along the already clogged Forest Drive corridor

Environmental Destruction

The development of Crystal Spring would:

  • Destroy nearly 40 acres of the last remaining block of mature forest in the city.
  • Pollute Crab Creek and the South River with contaminated stormwater runoff.
  • Threaten 220 species of birds and other animals, driving some from their natural habitat.

School Overcrowding

School Overcrowding

Non-age restricted housing at Crystal Spring will add to overcapacity in schools as:

  • Hillsmere Elementary is already using multiple trailers to address overcrowding.
  • Annapolis High School was recently closed for new enrollment due to overcapacity.
  • The City does not have an adequate facilities law applicable to public schools.
