Moving forward with The Village at Providence Point

Last September,  we spoke with Larry Bradshaw who is the CEO of National Lutheran Communities & Services and the man behind the project now known as The Village at Providence Point in Annapolis.  A lot has happened since then and today, we check in with Bradshaw as the project seems to be headed into the final stretch of the approval process.

Today we learned that they has submitted their plans to the City of Annapolis after working with the Stop Crystal Springs (opposition group) and the City to address most of the concerns. There are two remaining concerns that are still undecided as it is a decision (guidance) that needs to be provided by the City. If all goes well, Bradshaw thinks that construction might be able to start in the early part of 2022.

While on the same property, this is NOT anywhere close to the same project as Crystal Springs. Along with a change of names to The Village at Providence Point, this project has been downsized in the number of residents and in the general footprint of the project.

Beercast: A different kind of Memorial Day and some cash back!

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we continue our monthly series (no set schedule other than monthly) about beer.  We have a huge distributor of beer right here in Annapolis–Katcef Brothers Inc. and they have a ton of experts on hand to de-mystify beer for us.  Now, full disclosure–I like beer! I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

Memorial Day will be different this year for sure! We had hoped to be back in person this month, but the cards fell in a different direction and we are back on Zoom.  This month we talk about Memorial Day celebrations on your boat or in your backyard with PLENTY of suggestions!  But more than that, we have some links (below) to save you a lot of coin on some Memorial Day beverages.

So how do you fight through the negativity and make the whole situation manageable and, dare we say it….enjoyable? Tim talks with Dr. Tom Muha, founder of the Propel Institute and weekly columnist for the Capital for the past thirty years, about how to change your frame of mind to meet this unprecedented challenge.
