Lets think Spring/Summer

Spring and Summer are upon us and the temperatures as usual in Maryland are all over the place. we need to make sure that we are looking out for each other as the temps get hotter so if you have an elderly neighbor reach out and make sure they are ok. We also get the severe storms so I have kept the list below on the page as a reminder of things to do....

What to Do If the Lights Go Out

With thunderstorms of the season on their way, now is a good time to review things to do in the event of a power outage.

Keep flashlights, a battery-powered radio and fresh batteries handy.

Check on elderly neighbors and those with special needs who might need additional assistance.

Unplug sensitive electronics and appliances like space heaters to prevent damage when power is restored.

Keep the fridge and freezer doors and drawers closed, and wrap the fridge in blankets to help insulate it.

Keep curtains closed and limit trips outside to maintain temperature for a longer period.

Prepare today! Make an emergency plan and talk about it with your family to help everyone know what steps to take.

Community Yard Sale

Plans for next year are being discussed.

Roadwork information

There are plans to have more roadwork done in the fiscal 2015 year! this is great news and our voices are being heard.

We had a walk through with the County Executives office regarding the completion of the other roads within the community as well. 

Those who live on roads that have not seen any improvement should keep calling the Northern District roads for requests!  It helps to keep them hearing from those that are impacted!

410-222-6141 If you call be sure to write down date , name of person you spoke with and the information they gave you as we are now in constant communication regarding this and there have been issues with the way the department has been handling the calls. we need this to expidite our efforts!!!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

To help improve our community by participating in committees and community event planning. HELP SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY.

Community Clean-Up / Ride Through
We hire police officers to conduct our community ride through and extra security when needed. This service provides us with the necessary information to file zoning violations throughout our community. Please check our web site for updates and important phone numbers related to this community.
Abandoned Houses

There has been quite a bit of activity on homes in our area where the banks are starting to clean up and sell the properties that have been sitting.  This is great to see however if you see activity in a home and are not sure that they should be there please notify the police so that they can assure proper identity and purpose of being there.

We are asking for help in notifying the Harundale Civic Association to report abandoned properties so that the owners can be contacted and asked to maintain their properties. In the event the owner can't be contacted, we will make arrangements to secure the property and cut the lawn.

PODS and Storage Containers
Personal storage units are illegal when placed on the street in Anne Arundel County. These units must be placed on the homeowner's property (not the section between the street and sidewalk), and are limited to a six week period per county code. These units may only stay on your property for a longer period of time if you have a valid building permit, however six months is the absolute longest allowable period. Our community association will report all violations to the necessary authorities.
Harundale Presbyterian Church
Worship on Sundays at 10:30 AM, child care is provided, all are welcome. Come and be nourished and encouraged in faith. We are located at 1020 East Way (next to the library). Our phone number is 410-766-4338. Please visit us at our web address which is www.harundalepc.org

Curbside Trash 

it is important for everyone to wait until the night before the scheduled day to set out your cans and debris. Please return your containers from the curb area as soon as possible.

Remember also that if your scheduled day of collection falls on a holiday, your pickup day moves to the day after!

While driving through the neighborhood today, on trash day, I witnessed several drivers that did not give right of way to the men working on the waste removal trucks! In fact one of the guys almost got hit!!! Can we please slow down and give these hard working individuals a few moments to do their job!!! Just a little patience.. They are working for you!

All of us have now received the BIG yellow recycle bins!

If there are any problems or concerns you can contact Waste collections at 410-222-6103

More information regarding curbside trash is available at this link.

Grass Cutting along the highway

Every year we run into an issue where the state who maintains 700 miles off roadway grass cutting waits until the grass is 3 feet tall and 50 calls from us to cut it! We have taken calls from you the concerned neighbors and we continue to call the various agencies that are linked to the final goal.  So that everyone knows the middle median area is contracted out to the county and maintained by a private company as part of the beautification act and it works however the state maintains the rest of the areas and obviously that dosent work so well.

We the officers of the community are not settling for this any longer and we will keep everyone updated on the progress. as of now this is escalated from the delegates office to the senators office and now is at the governors desk where we are awaiting a schedule for a meeting to discuss changes on process and procedures on how this matter is delt with for the future of our community! stay tuned for updates.

Mosquito Control

The Mayland drpt. of Agriculture once again has included our community in the mosquito sprat program which will start up as activity grows between now and June.

WE must all do our part in assisting the control of these nasty insects....

Do not allow rain water to accumulate in buckets, trash can lids or anything that holds water! Turn these items upside down or keep lids on their cans. IT ALL STARTS WITH US!

Our area will be sprayed on Thursday nights between the hours of 7pm and 2:40 am. Training of the technicians begins on May 27 - June 10th and regular treatments should begin June 11th and run possible through October if needed.

Zoning and permits information

ARTICLE 18.  ZONING

 18-17-102.  Inoperable and unregistered vehicles.

 (a)   Definition. For purposes of this section, the term "vehicle" means a motor vehicle, trailer, or boat.

 (b)   Scope. This section does not apply to the storage of vehicles as accessory to a marina or a service and sales facility or to the storage of unregistered vehicles within a roofed structure entirely enclosed on all sides.

  (c)   Prohibition. Except as provided otherwise by this article, land may not be used for the parking, storage, collection, accumulation, or abandonment of any inoperable, wrecked, partially dismantled, or destroyed vehicle or of any vehicle that does not display all information required by law, including a current registration plate and validation sticker.

  

Pet Owners

Dogs may be “man’s best friend” and a delightful sight, but if owners are negligent, dogs can also be quite a public nuisance. For instance, owners who fail to pick up after their pets contribute to the spread of disease and create an undesirable walking environment. Dog poop can carry tapeworm, salmonella, and E. coli, diseases that might not be a direct harm to humans, but that can easily spread to other animals. Not to mention that rainwater washes the waste into drains, therefore requiring more sanitation efforts and potentially lowering the quality of water. Therefore, it is crucial that dog owners heed dog poop and leash laws.

There is a pet station cleanup located in the triangle on guildford road that is used by many of our residents. Thank You! However sadly to say there are several dog owners that walk their pets in our park areas and along the medians and feel there is no need to comply with the laws and common respect for others. Dogs should always be leashed in public areas regardless of the nature of the animal and you should pick up after your pet when they go in these areas. You know who you are and so do we!!!

IT's THE LAW - CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG!!!
