County Agrees to Remove Two Red Light Cameras On Edgewood Road

Good news! Prince George’s County has agreed to remove the red light cameras on Edgewood Road in the near future. As you know, the City and the County have been discussing the installation of the red light cameras and why the cameras were installed without the City’s authorization. What we found was that a miscommunication occurred between the City and the County. The County thought the City had requested the installation of the cameras, when in fact, the City had only requested a study be conducted of the camera installation.

Most of the tickets that have been issued were for turning right on red without making a full stop. The City has asked the County to consider issuing refunds to those who received citations for red light violations on Edgewood Road and who paid their fines. The City is awaiting an answer to the request. We will notify residents when we receive any new information.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Interested in Forming a Neighborhood Watch Group?

From the recent thread on the crime incident, it looks like there is some interest in forming Neighborhood Watch group with neighbors living on street blocks. Accordingly, I reached out to our Community Police Officer Corporal Lobin, who has gladly agreed to help in forming such groups on your block. If you’re interested, please PM me or send an email to fkabir@collegeparkmd.gov.

For those of you, who are new to the concept of Neighborhood Watch program, here is a brief intro.

A Neighborhood Watch team can act as an extra set of “eyes and ears” when police aren’t around. Neighborhood Watch does more than just canvassing the community. It also gives residents an opportunity to get to know others in the neighborhood, open the lines of communication with local police and encourage better overall cooperation among residents in crime prevention efforts. Participation in Neighborhood Watch builds confidence and encourages residents to take an active interest in one another’s properties and livelihoods. Members of a Neighborhood Watch group also build a positive connection with the local police officers, who often help neighbors with tips to prevent crime in the neighborhood.

If you’ve further questions, please let me know. Thank you!

Council Decides to Delay Non-Resident Voting Decision Until September 12

At last night’s Council meeting, the City Council unanimously decided to delay the proposal allowing non-resident to vote at City elections until the September 12 regular meeting.

The proposal’s sponsor Councilmember Nagle made the announcement at the beginning of the meeting. The reason for delaying the vote is to explore the possibility of hosting a referendum at the upcoming November election, CM Nagle said. The request to change meeting agenda was approved unanimously.

The Council plans to discuss the referendum options at the September 5th worksession. At the worksession, we’ll most likely decide the possible referendum question for the November ballot. The Council will then potentially decide whether to hold the referendum at the September 12 meeting.

On another note, the Councilmembers have agreed to extend the comment period on the nonresident voting until September 12. We’d also like to hear your thoughts about putting the issue to a referendum. You can send your comments to the Mayor and Council by sending an email to cpmc@collegeparkmd.gov. Thank you!

Council Mulls Referendum Options on Who Can Vote in City Elections

At tonight’s Council meeting, Council is scheduled to decide whether to move forward and vote on a Charter Amendment to extend the ability to vote in City elections to non-U.S. citizens.

The City Council may decide to postpone tonight’s vote until September 12th. This will allow us to discuss an advisory question for a potential referendum at the September 5th worksession. The City election is scheduled on Tuesday, November 7, 2017.

A public hearing was held on July 11, 2017 and a special joint meeting of the North College Park Community Association and the West College Park Civic Association was held on August 3, 2017.

If this proposal is passed the City will create a supplemental voter list for non-United States citizens who are eligible to vote in City elections. The same restrictions that currently apply to eligibility to vote in City elections would apply to City residents on the supplemental list. Individuals 1) convicted of buying or selling votes; 2) under guardianship for mental disability and found by a court to be unable to communicate a desire to vote; or 3) convicted of a felony and currently serving a court-ordered sentence of imprisonment for the conviction are ineligible to vote in municipal elections would not be permitted to vote.

Thanks to everyone who wrote to us on this important matter. If you haven’t had a chance to write to us, please send your thoughts to the Mayor and Council at cpmc@collegeparkmd.gov by 5 pm today. Thank you!

College Park to Recognize a Purple Heart Hero of its Own

purpleheart

Next Tuesday, August 8, during the Mayor and Council Regular meeting, College Park resident John Pedevillano will be honored by the City’s Mayor and Council. Check out the amazing story about Mr. Pedevillano and his valor.

Recently, John Pedevillano, 94, of College Park, Maryland, received the Purple Heart for his service during World War II. Second Lt. Pedevillano’s bomber was shot down over Nazi Germany in April 1944. Sustaining injuries from the crash, he was held captive at Stalag Luft III — a prisoner of war camp in what is now Zagan, Poland — until Allied forces liberated him in 1945.

After returning home, Pedevillano’s modesty prevented him from seeking recognition for his service. It wasn’t until 2016, when his daughter tracked down his long-lost military records, that the scope of his service came to light.
His daughter worked with Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and other officials to get her father the recognition that led to the Purple Heart ceremony.

We invite the community and all those who are interested to attend the Mayor and Council Meeting at City Hall (4500 Knox Rd) or to stream it online at www.collegeparkmd.gov/councilvideo.

Council to Discuss Proposal to Immediate Transfer of UMD Properties to a Development Company

At tonight’s meeting, the City Council will discuss the potential transfer of 10 parcels of land currently owned by the University of Maryland to the Terrapin Development Company, LLC (TDC) and whether to send comments to the State Clearinghouse.  The TDC is a limited liability company that was formed by the University of Maryland College Park (UMD) and the University of  Maryland College Park Foundation (Foundation).

Transfer of the state land to the TDC requires approval from the Board of Public Works (BPW).  The State Clearinghouse provides notification of the potential disposal of state land and allows for review and comment.   UMD is proposing the immediate transfer of 3 parcels totaling 11 +/- acres and proposing 7 parcels totaling 18 +/- acres be subject to a 10-year exclusive option to acquire, lease or develop.
