TOWSON, Md. (AP) People living near Towson University are objecting to the planned expansion of the Towson Center arena.

The groundbreaking for the $45 million addition to the building is scheduled for spring 2010.

The original plan called for the new construction to be done on the campus side of the site, but revised plans put the construction closer to the Rodgers Forge neighborhood. Several hundred residents attended a packed meeting with university officials Jan. 21, and many urged that the project be delayed until their objections are considered.

Plans call for new parking, a 5,000 seat addition to the building and the conversion of the current gym into practice courts.
