President’s Message

August 27, 2016

Welcome to the Cool Spring Terrace Civic Association (CSTCA) website!

At today’s meeting we welcomed two new members (yeah!) and, although a smaller than usual group, had neighbors from all corners of the neighborhood.

Hope you are enjoying the summer!  As we once again enter the school season and welcome our growing UMD student population, let’s keep in mind a couple of things.  At today’s meeting, we had Cpl. Donald Rickert of the Prince George’s County Police, known to many, and Ofcr. Laura Dyer of the University of Maryland Police.  Both reminded us of the importance of reporting “over the top” student parties to the Prince George’s County Police when they are happening.  If this is a continuing issue, please also report to the UMD Office of Student Conduct and include any report numbers. Students who continually disrupt our neighborhood can be sanctioned by a Peer Review Board.  Of course, please first take an opportunity to talk to your student neighbors and remind them that they are living in a peaceful residential neighborhood where we all enjoy our quiet and tranquility.  Hopefully, by reaching out we won’t have to escalate.

We also had Ms. Alison Flores from Councilwoman Deni Taveras’ office.  She told us that we should see the trash toters by the end of September (yeah!) and to contact  their office with any continuing complaints about the one-day per week trash pickup.  Residents can email her Constituent Services Director, Carolyn Cook (cdcook@co.pg.md.us), with complaints about trash pickup.

Please join us on Sat October 29, 2016 at 11 AM at the Church of Christ Scientist, 8300 Adelphi Rd. for the next General Membership Meeting. Hope to see you there!
