Amy Weber won third prize for her hotel development plan, Hotel 162 at the Creek, based in Frederick, Maryland, and pictured in her poster to the right. Amy's mentor was Earl Armiger, President and Founder of Orchard Development. Monument Bank sponsored Amy's $250 prize. Mr. Armiger and his two students, Amy Weber and Tyler Kohler, were part of a larger University Initiative called PALS, a partnership between multiple courses at the University and the City of Frederick this year. Each year the University, through the auspices of the Center for Smart Growth, coordinates over 100 courses offered as field exercises addressing multiple issues in that community. An undeveloped piece of land owned by the City on Carroll Creek served as the site for Amy and Tyler's proposals. Mr. Armiger found both Tyler and Amy's projects would be ones he would recommend that any bank fund, as they were based on top notch market research and financial analysis. Congrats to Amy for her winning proposal.
