St. Charles Co. re­ports 202 lots sold for 2016

The St. Charles Com­pa­nies re­ported 202 new home lot sales for 2016, the fifth year in a row in which more than 200 lots were sold in the 9,200-acre com­mu­nity near Wal­dorf, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

In 2016, St. Charles also sold more than $9.2 mil­lion in com­mer­cial of­fice prop­erty as de­mand for busi­ness lo­ca­tions con­tin­ues to grow, the re­lease stated.

The com­pany also an­nounced that na­tional home­builder D.R. Hor­ton will join the St. Charles ros­ter of sin­gle-fam­ily home builders this year. D.R. Hor­ton will build five dif­fer­ent de­signs that of­fer a va­ri­ety of flex­i­bil­ity, three of which are new de­signs to ap­peal to to­day’s fam­i­lies.

“We are ex­cited to add the strength of D.R. Hor­ton, Amer­ica’s largest home­builder, to St. Charles,” St. Charles Com­pa­nies Pres­i­dent Matthew M. Martin said in the re­lease. “Their com­mit­ment to qual­ity and value makes them an ideal ad­di­tion to St. Charles.”

St. Charles con­tin­ues to be the top-sell­ing new home com­mu­nity in South­ern Mary­land, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease. The planned com­mu­nity is 11 miles south of the Cap­i­tal Belt­way, of­fers easy ac­cess to the area’s trans­porta­tion cor­ri­dors, and is close to South­ern Mary­land’s mil­i­tary bases and Na­tional Har­bor.

St. Charles High School, built on a 100-acre site do­nated by The St. Charles Com­pa­nies, in­cludes pro­grams on en­vi­ron­men­tal and nat­u­ral re­source man­age­ment and tech­nol­ogy. The “Science on a Sphere” pro­gram was co-de­vel­oped by NASA and pro­vides stu­dents with vis­ual in­struc­tion about science, the Earth and the en­vi­ron­ment.

Com­mer­cial real es­tate data firm, John Burns Real Es­tate Con­sult­ing, has con­sis­tently ranked St. Charles in the top 50 on a list of top sell­ing mas­ter planned com­mu­ni­ties.

The com­mu­nity fea­tures Re­gency Fur­ni­ture (base­ball) Sta­dium, the Wal­dorf West li­brary and the new St. Charles High School.

Lead­er­ship Mary­land an­nounces Class of 2017

Lead­er­ship Mar yland an­nounced re­cently the Class of 2017 se­lec­tion, con­sist­ing of 52 busi­ness and com­mu­nity lead­ers from across the state cho­sen to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­gram ded­i­cated to build­ing a bet­ter Mary­land, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

Two South­ern Mary­land lead­ers were se­lected. Roy C. Mc­Grath of Wal­dorf is the di­rec­tor/CEO of Mary­land En­vi­ron­men­tal Ser­vices for the state. Bar­bara J. “Julie” Paluda of Hunt­ing­town is the cap­i­tal projects an­a­lyst for Calvert County.

The 25th class re­flects a cross-sec­tion of the state, in­clud­ing di­ver­sity of geo­graphic lo­ca­tion, pro­fes­sion, eth­nic­ity and gen­der. The 52 in­di­vid­u­als will com­plete an eight month hands-on learn­ing pro­gram fo­cused on the state’s most vi­tal is­sues.

Fol­low­ing a two-day open­ing re­treat in April, the class will at­tend five two-day ses­sions travers­ing the state fo­cus­ing on eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, ed­u­ca­tion, health and hu­man ser­vices, crim­i­nal jus­tice, the en­vi­ron­ment and mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism/di­ver­sity. These ses­sions will be fol­lowed by a one-day clos­ing re­treat in Novem­ber and a grad­u­a­tion celebration in De­cem­ber. More than 100 ex­perts rep­re­sent­ing busi­ness, gov­ern­ment, ed­u­ca­tion and the non­profit com­mu­nity will serve as pan­elists and guest speak­ers.

“The se­lec­tion process for the Class of 2017 was very com­pet­i­tive this year, as we had an ex­traor­di­nary pool of di­verse and ex­pe­ri­enced ap­pli­cants to choose from,” Renée M. Win­sky (‘05), pres­i­dent and CEO of Lead­er­ship Mary­land, said in the re­lease. “The 52 se­lected par­tic­i­pants rep­re­sent a di­verse and broad spec­trum of highly qual­i­fied ex­ec­u­tives from across the state.”
