NCPCA - It's Your Neighborhood Association

After two months summer recess, NCPCA will meet again tonight. This will be our first meeting in 2010 – 2011 calendar year. We have a new board of directors – Bob Seward is our new vice presidents and Larry Bleau has rejoined the board as NCPCA treasurer.

The meeting will start with a briefing from Maryland State’s 21st Delegation. State Senator Jim Rosapepe of our district has been conformed to attend. Two Delegates representing College Park, Ben Barnes and Joseline A. Peña-Melnyk are also expected to join. Expect to hear the progress they have made in the past legislative session and also what they are doing to address the current situation surrounding related to recession and economic downturn.

Maureen Cissel and Dwight Joseph of the Prince George’s county’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT) will be on hand to talk about the traffic signal project at the Rhode Island / Edgewood road intersection. They have been serving as project managers since the project started some time ago. Please bring your questions to find where the project is heading.

Members will discuss where the City should be putting neighborhood entry signs for our neighborhoods.

There will be one bylaws amendment related to a new dues structure. The proposed structure is based on individuals living in households, as opposed to household itself. You must be a member to vote on the amendment.

NCPCA will also discuss and will likely take a position on new sector plan for Greenbelt Metro.

Oh, please do not forget our annual picnic this Saturday.

See you all tonight.
