August 2016 9th 630PM
November 2016 8th 630PM

WILL YOU BE THERE! Please be sure to tell your neighbors of the new times! see you there. 

A simple note on meetings. A community can only improve with information that is shared as a group! I see comments on social media from all kinds of residents who NEVER seem to be able to speak their minds in a forum that matters!

The only thing that accomplishes is a perception from others that may not be true!

Want to make changes? Want to make a difference?  SHOW UP!

Let's think Spring/Summer!

WOW! Spring is coming! and with that comes the time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors and our yards! Get out and take a look around to see if there are things that need to be addressed, fixed up, cleaned up. Help your neighbors if you can should they need something hauled away. it accomplishes 2 things, 1 getting to know each other and helping to improve the appearances of your areas. If there is ever a need for help drop us a line and we can see what we can do as well.

Reminder that spring also brings the bugs, especially mosquitos! So please take the time to remove or change the items in your yard that collect or hold water. That is the main breeding grounds for them. Also make sure you are prepared for the possible storms that we are known for.

Enjoy the season!!!

What to Do If the Lights Go Out

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

What a great job that was done smoothing out all of the rough road areas on Manning, Saunders and Lorimer roads. Manning and Norwich roads have already begun their complete rework for this year and hopefully we are going to see the continuation of this until all of the rest of our community roads are completed!!!

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!


 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 expedite our efforts!!!  Also while we are trying to do this please keep in mind that the law states( in short) that repairs are the responsibility of the homeowner however there are some exceptions so be kind while speaking with these people as the old saying goes you get more with sugar...




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

Community Clean-Up / Ride Through

This type of community work is not the popular thing for some however it is needed and for those same that it is not popular chances are it is due to the fact that your in violation of a community, county or state violation. It is not our intention to single out any one home and make no mistake, all that are in violation will be cited. for too long in the past things were left alone and we will not do that. 

Your way of living and care taken with your property may not bother you however this is a neighborhood therefore we your neighbors may be offended!  If we see or receive a complaint we act on it as soon as humanly possible. We will investigate and see if the issue is a violation and if so we will issue a letter and file a zoning report, The Deeds & Agreements that all residents are bound to in our HOA can and will supersede county and state regulations and we will enforce them to benefit the whole community rather than the individual person most times.

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.  If there is a question regarding this process feel free to come to a meeting to discuss it. We would love to see you there.

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.

Grass Cutting along the highway

Well as we have all seen this past year, the state after receiving a letter from us stayed on top of the cutting throughout the year. Congratulations to them for the success this year. We will be watching to see if the memories are short for next year.


Mosquito Control

Hard to believe that it is time to start thinking and preparing for spring already. We have received the information request for the community enrollment in the program for the upcoming 2016-17 year. It has been completed and returned and we are informing all residents that we will be having the spraying process at the discretion of the Dept.. of Agriculture. We have to provide the residents this information and therefore if there are any questions please go to the link below for assistance.

Zoning and permits information


 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!!!

Curb side 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 curb side trash is available at this link.

Santa Tour 2015   

This year’s Santa tour was a great success!

Click here to view more photos and other past events

Since making a change from the use of the fire department to having our own Santa Sleigh, we anticipated that there would be a little time to have the residents catch up to the change as well. going from the early morning to just after dark. This being the second Annual run was a great turn out and it took about 5 hours to complete the entire community! 

I wish that there was a way we could tell you when we will be in the area of each street but the fact that we stop when ever we see someone waiting and with pictures and presents and conversations along the way it is impossible! But we have a blast doing it!

We also include a couple of streets that are technically not in our jurisdiction but in the spirit they are along the way and allow for easier navigating.

There was no road that was not visited in the community!

Thanks to all that were a part of this fantastic event that is put on by the Civic Association for the residents of our community.
