New development in Towson is already on the horizon with Towson Square and Towson Circle. A new move today indicates more could be on the way at the quad.
Towson University is hiring former Howard County Executive Ken Ulman to focus on a strategy that would tie together emerging businesses, institutions and communities. Ulman will work on a four-month contract. He was previously tapped by the University of Maryland College Park to focus on creating more space for startups.
In Towson, Ulman will be initiating an “anchor scan” that identifies key businesses in the area, and analyze market trends. The public can weigh in on what role the university can play in the community at an event on Nov. 16 at TU’s West Village Commons.
