Harford Community College Gets Indoor Sports Arena

The developers of a proposed field house, which is slated for a grassy lot in front of the Arena Club near Bel Air, must provide a wealth of information about how the project will affect area water and sewage capacity before all Harford County agencies sign off on the site plan.

"A complete evaluation of the existing [septic] drain field status and capacity will be required to determine the extent of improvements, if any, that will be required to the existing drain field," Julie Mackert, who represents the Harford County Health Department on the county's Development Advisory Committee, said during a review of the field house concept plan Wednesday morning.

The 23,650-square-foot field house is being built to provide infield training to Arena Starz Baseball players. Arena Starz is a youth sports program of The Arena Club, a health club and swimming complex off Route 22 between the Harford Community College campus and Campus Hills Shopping Center.

Mitch Ensor of Bay State Land Services Inc. of Forest Hill presented the concept plan to the DAC members.
