Residents raised several concerns Wednesday night connected with events held at the stadium during a meeting organized by the Naval Academy Athletic Association, Alderman Fred Paone and Mayor Mike Pantelides' office. The meeting was held at the stadium in the Akerson Tower.
Gladchuk said the meeting was an exercise to talk through what the NAAA can do to make everyone more comfortable.
"To mitigate disruption is something that I'm absolutely committed to," he said.
One step the group is taking is to more widely share contact information, so residents know who to call or email when they encounter a problem, such as trash in their yard after a game.
The meeting is in response to a controversy which arose this January. At the time, neighboring community associations objected to an action sports show led by Annapolis-native Travis Pasatrana, called Nitro Circus, coming to the stadium. A deal was reached and the show is now scheduled for July 23, but during those negotiations parties agreed to hold a meeting to discuss stadium issues, Paone said.
"Chet called me and said 'let's do it,'" Paone said Wednesday.
Paone said he thinks the meeting brought some real reassurances to the neighborhoods.
Jim Leanos, of Admiral Heights, said during the meeting that events like the Nitro Circus were non-starters. But in general he views the stadium as a good amenity, he said.
"Generally I think the other things you do are not only good for us but good for Annapolis," he said.
