If Odenton were to sit on Santa's lap, it might have a long list of requests.
From new businesses to road improvements, there are many things that the town could use in 2013. But will Santa come through?
Here's a look at Odenton's Christmas list.
A New Grocery Store - Early in 2012, there was hope that landlords at the Odenton Shopping Center would secure a lease for the vacant Superfresh site. But that hasn't happened yet, leaving many residents frustrated. Perhaps 2013 will bring a new grocer to Odenton.
Apartment Leases - There are hundreds of apartment units under construction in Odenton. It would be a shame to see them empty, so here's to hoping developers have luck in finding tenants in the coming year.
Money for Roads - This is a long shot, but everyone is hoping to see some state funds for road improvements and other infrastructure upgrades in Odenton. At the very least, officials in town should be able to prioritize projects to grab money stemming from impact fees in town.
Starbucks? - We know some real estate brokers are going after the coffee chain hard. Will the company sign on?
Some State Titles - Local high school sports teams had good years, but no one brought home the top prize. Will anyone win a state championship at Arundel, Old Mill or Meade High in 2013?
