Community Yard Sale

Are you ready to clean out the "stuff" you don't need and make some cash for doing it! We need to know that the yard sale is what you want so let us hear from you. May 17th this year.

Huge amount of space available in the Harundale Mall parking lot. If you want a space we need to know as soon as possible!  Tell your friends too! Lets hang out together and get to know each other. The event will only be held with support from you!

Call HOPCA at 410-553-0174 for more information and registration.

Lets think Spring

We have been selected again to participate in the mosquito control program performed by the Dept of Agriculture for AA county. This program made a major difference in the area and I am glad to see that it is continuing.

It is early in the season and with all the rain that has been falling we must start to do our part as well by getting out in our yards and ridding them of any conditions that allow for the holding of water. This is IMPORTANT because this is where the larvae start the breeding process.

Please see Tips to Rid Your Community of Mosquito Breeding Sites

If you wish to be excluded from the program you must submit a completed exemption form to the MD Dept. of Agriculture found on their web site.

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 continue to have conversations 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

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
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.

Community Information

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!!!

        

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.
