Curb Replacement Notification – 51st Avenue

Next Wednesday June 28th, or before, the NZI Construction Inc., working for the City, will begin replacing curbs along 51st Avenue between Lackawanna Street and Hollywood Road.

NZI Construction Inc. is WSSC contractor doing the repavement work

The work is being performed on this street in preparation of it being resurfaced by WSSC this summer.

Door hanger notifications were distributed yesterday afternoon.

Construction barrels and cones will be placed along one side of the street with “ Emergency No Parking” notices on them prior to the start of the construction. Only one side of the street will be worked on at a time.

We’d like to hear your experiences during the street re-pavement work, so that the WSSC contractors do not make the same mistake in future projects elsewhere in the city.

Tax Credit Bill Coming for P.G. County Seniors and Retired Veterans

County Councilwoman Mary Lehman told me yesterday that at her direction, her staff is requesting that the P.G. County bill is drafted and presented prior to the County Council’s August recess. The bill should make it onto the council agenda by July 11, but it will not be heard in committee until September.

I first came to know about a similar program in Howard and Montgomery county (please see here), and then contacted our two County Council persons representing College Park. Thanks to CM Mary Lehman for her help in getting the bill drafted.

Once the bill gets a number, I will let you all know, so that we can start advocating and lobbying to other County Council members. I’ll also work to get letters of support from the City Councils in College Park and the surrounding cities.

On a related note, our staff has added a worksession item to discuss the possibility of implementing a similar tax credit program on City’s portion of property tax revenue. Once it’s put on the calendar, I’ll let you know.

Thank you all for your interest in this bill.

Theft from auto Tips

1. Don’t leave your car unlocked.
2. Never leave your car running, especially while it is unattended or unlocked.
3. Do not leave a spare key near your vehicle.
 4. Never leave your windows open.
 Even during the summer when it is scorching hot, don’t leave your windows open or slightly cracked when you are not in the vehicle.
5. Park in well-lit, public areas.
 Avoid parking in areas that are poorly lit or places that are not immediately seen by the public. This will not only keep you safe when you exit the car, it will also help keep your car safe because thieves tend to avoid areas that are highly visible.
6. Install an audible alarm system and a visible anti-theft device.
 Car thieves tend to avoid cars with alarms or anti-theft devices because they attract attention when they go off. These devices are well worth the investment.
7. Install a vehicle immobilizer system.
 Thieves can bypass your ignition by “hotwiring” your car. You can prevent this by using a vehicle mobilizer system such as fuel cut-offs and smart keys
8. Consider installing a GPS tracking system.
When your car is stolen, this tracking system will emit a signal to the police of your vehicle’s location. This may help the police recover your vehicle faster and may minimize the damage to your car. This may be a good investment if you live in an area with high auto theft rates.
9. Don’t leave valuable personal property in your car.
 The best way to attract a thief is to leave your purse or another high-value item in a highly visible area of your car. If you must put something of value in your car, keep it in the trunk or under the seats, where it is not visible to others. Do not place your purse in the trunk while in the parking lot of your destination. Thieves might be watching you.

Council Decides to Scale back Gateway Park Project

An earlier design of the park pavilion. This may go away as part of the scaling back decision.

At last night’s meeting, the City Council decided to scale back the Gateway Park project. Though the Council decided to fund the park fully, strangely enough, it then decided to scale down the Park’s amenities.

The outcome is rather disappointing, given the fact that the Council has consistently supported the design of the park project that is now near to completion and we’re ready to break ground.

The implication of the last night vote is uncertain and very vague. One idea floated was to get rid of the pavilion that could be used as an educational venue and gathering place for residents. Strangely enough, if we don’t build it, the CBT grant fund ($150K) that was thought to be used for this amenity cannot be used for any other project. In other words, this money will be lost. The City renewed the funds recently and is set to expire in September.

The Council will discuss more at its July 5 meeting more about the project’s new scope.

It was rather disappointing to see the park is going to get scaled back. We always complain that the north College Park doesn’t get much. Now we’ve all the funds for amenities that our resident could enjoy, sadly we decided to not have it.

Thanks to many residents who came out to last night’s Council meeting. I believe around 12 residents spoke – all in favor of the park. Also, thanks to you all who wrote to us about the park. THANK YOU!

Property Tax Deferral Program for Elderly and Disabled Residents

Prince George’s County has a property tax deferral program for elderly and disabled residents. The program allows certain qualified residents to postpone paying some property taxes until a later date or event (such as a property sale or death of the owners). The link to the application is below.

http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/DocumentCenter/Home/View/10230

On a related matter, we’re still waiting to hear from our County representatives about the tax credit program that we talked about a few weeks ago.

The City is also looking into ways to explore tax credit programs for the seniors.

I’ll let you know once I find more about these tax credit initiatives.

Old Parish House Re-Opens July 1!

Great news – the Old Parish House will re-open on July 1, 2017! The City will begin taking reservations (for July 1 onward) on June 12.

To reserve the facility for an event, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 240-487-3501.

Earlier last spring, the City of College Park commissioned an “historic structures analysis” of the Old Parish House as part of our overall effort to learn how we can best maintain this almost 200-year-old building. One aspect of that analysis was an inspection by a structural engineer. In assessing the roof, the structural engineer found an unsafe condition with the roof supports and advised that the main hall of the Old Parish House not be occupied until the necessary remedial work has been completed.

The City worked with a contractor to design the needed repairs to the Old Parish House roof. Funding for this project came from the City’s Facilities Capital Reserve fund in the Capital Improvement Projects fund.
