In an recent press release from the Columbia Association:
A Statement From CA on Symphony Woods
Downtown Columbia continues to serve as a destination and hub for this community. In the heart of this area lies Symphony Woods, 50 acres of open space protected and maintained by Columbia Association (CA) for the community. CA is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with the Downtown Columbia Arts & Culture Commission (DCACC), the property owner of Merriweather Post Pavilion, that will enable Symphony of Lights to go forward during this holiday season while ensuring that Symphony Woods remains protected. CA will continue to take the necessary steps to protect Symphony Woods while allowing for cherished community events – such as Symphony of Lights – to take place. The arrangement ensures that Symphony Woods is utilized in a respectful and sustainable manner. CA and DCACC look forward to this opportunity to work together.
I am happy to hear the Symphony of Lights will continue to exist in Howard County. This was a not fun fight to witness and to see an agreement reached (finally) is a good thing to hear for all of the county.
