A nearly $40 million recreational and competitive swim center is in the early stages of design and set to be built in Provinces Park in Severn by 2026, according to county officials. However, a coalition of community groups from Arundel Forest, Turnbury Run, Strawberry Hill and Disney Estates is doing everything it can to stop it from being built in their neighborhood. The swim center has been in development for a decade. It was originally to be built in Odenton but when the proposed property couldn’t accommodate the plans, the county looked north to Severn, said District 1 council member Sarah Lacey, a Jessup Democrat who represents Provinces Park.
