Slowly but surely, the redevelopment of Symphony Woods is taking shape, and I am really starting to like what I see, as evidenced by this article.
In the search for a signature item of Columbia redevelopment, a symbol that could become as iconic as the people tree was to the Columbia pioneers, I think the idea of a fountain in Symphony Woods that motorists and others could see from Little Patuxent Parkway would be fantastic.
I especially love the fact that the fountain could even operate in winter, and be lighted. In this latter aspect, I'm envisioning the fountain being lit red, white and blue for the 4th of July, red and green for Christmas, orange on halloween-- thinking our own local version of the Empire State Building's lighting scheme.
I strongly encourage the CA Board of Directors to approve the development of this fountain as part of stage 2 of the redevelopment of Symphony Woods!
