Recreation center to be built at Baltimore County (Md.) elementary

The Baltimore County (Md.) district will build a recreation and community center at Padonia International Elementary School and convert the existing gymnasium into needed classroom space. The Baltimore Sun reports that the $3 million, 14,260-square-foot Padonia Community/Police Athletic League Center will replace an existing center across the street. Padonia International has a state-rated capacity of 311 students, but is projected to open the 2013-14 school year with 490 students.
