Colleeg Park Food Truck Hub May Operate until Midnight

At this week’s Council worksession, the City Council will consider extending the proposed downtown food truck hub until midnight.

College Park Ventures LLC received City support for a food truck hub located in Downtown College Park at the former Little Tavern site, at the intersection of Route 1 and Lehigh Road. Operation of this hub is expected to commence on September 2 with two trucks. The hours of operation of this hub were proposed to be 11:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Sunday.

Based on new County Council legislation (CB-48-2016) recently approved, food truck hubs are permitted to operate until midnight with approval from the municipality in which they reside as well as the County Council Member representing the area. College Park Ventures LLC is requesting a letter of support from the City to operate the downtown food truck hub until 12:00 am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

In addition, College Park Ventures LLC proposes to operate a second food truck hub in the University of Maryland M Square Research Park Monday through Wednesday from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Tomorrow at the Market

Vol. 2 Issue 14 – August is National Peach Month…  

…and that’s perfect for a farmers market!  Both Calvert Farms and Valencia Produce have peaches galore!  Why wait until next weekend? Start enjoying those peaches now.  🙂

A little peachy-keen facts:
– Peaches were originally from China.  It was Spanish explorers who brought peaches to America in the 1600’s.
-Georgia is known as the “Peach State” but most peaches are grown in California so they can be available almost year round.
-Peaches are a good source of vitamins A and C.  They are fat free, cholesterol free and sodium free.
-The two main varieties of peaches are the Freestone and the Clingstone.  The pit is easy to remove in a Freestone while a little more difficult in a Clingstone.
-Nectarines are a type of peach but have smooth skin without the fuzz.
-Have you ever tried a grilled peach?  Here is an amazing recipe:  Halve the peaches (remove pit); brush with melted butter; grill on each side 4-5 minutes; enjoy.

With the high temps forecasted for tomorrow it might be nice to have a refresher on Signs of Heat Exhaustion

According to the Mayo Clinic”Heat exhaustion is a condition whose symptoms may include heavy sweating and a rapid pulse, a result of your body overheating.

Causes of heat exhaustion include exposure to high temperatures, particularly when combined with high humidity, and strenuous physical activity. Without prompt treatment, heat exhaustion can lead to heatstroke, a life-threatening condition. Fortunately, heat exhaustion is preventable.”

Signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion may develop suddenly or over time, especially with prolonged periods of exercise. Possible heat exhaustion signs and symptoms include:

  • Cool, moist skin with goose bumps when in the heat
  • Heavy sweating
  • Faintness
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Weak, rapid pulse
  • Low blood pressure upon standing
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea
  • Headache”

Polystyrene Ban Goes in Effect in Prince George’s County

foam-free-in-pgc

Prince George’s County Council has finally banned the certain use of polystyrene in the food industry.

Last year County Councilwoman Mary Lehman introduced and passed CB 5-2015, legislation prohibiting the use and sale of certain expanded polystyrene food service products and loose fill packaging effective July 2016.

These containers are not easily recycled, do not biodegrade, and are a major contributor to trash pollution. The District of Columbia and Montgomery County have passed similar legislation allowing a regional approach to protecting our watersheds. Learn more here.

UMD’s Medical Systems to Acquire, Modernize Laurel Hospital

laurel-hospital

Tomorrow, the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is expected to make an announcement about its commitment to acquire Laurel Hospital and work closely with the community to design a modernization plan which will improve access to world class health care in our area.

Last year, the hospital announced that, after serving Prince George’s County since 1978, will be downsized into a walk-in outpatient medical center. This caused quite a bit of outcry  from the community.

The UMMS, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker, Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe and other elected officials will hold a press conference tomorrow, Monday, July 18, 2016 at 12:00pm at the Laurel Municipal Center, located at 8103 Sandy Spring Rd. in Laurel, MD 20707.

The media and public should be in attendance so they can hear about the vision of the modernization of healthcare delivery at Laurel Regional Hospital and share the news!

The public has been requested to assemble in the Council Chambers by 11:30am, so the live coverage can begin right at Noon. If you are unable to attend, please tune into Laurel TV for live coverage on Comcast 996(HD) and 71(SD); Verizon 12 or via live streaming at Laurel TV.org.

For more information, please contact the Director of Communications, Audrey Barnes, at 301-725-5300 ext. 2208.
