Members in Attendance: Approximately 22

  1. Welcome/Gathering

The meeting was called to order at 11:12 a.m. with President Mickens-Mosley presiding.

  1. Announcements and Officers’ Reports:
  • The Association’s account balance is $1,486.00. We are accepting dues for 2019. Checks (in the amount of $10) can be mailed to Treasurer, Anika Halota, 3305 Cool Spring Road. Please do not leave cash.
  • The minutes were read and approved with an amendment request regarding the use of the word “anonymous.” Minutes will also be amended to reflect discussion of UMD’s golf course reduction proposal.

COP Liaison Report

  • Theft from autos continues to be an ongoing problem and Officer Musse reminded the members to remove valuables from cars.
  • Membership queried the police response time to 911 calls. This concern was raised in the context of student occupied houses in the community. The membership discussed on-going disruption caused by this Curry Place household (e.g. late-night parties, residual trash, students blacked-out on neighboring lawns, suspected drug-sales).
  • Membership discussed the need for a systematic and multi-prong response to this problem, namely writing to the owner, the university and keeping note of any 911-calls made, flagging the house to the Nuisance Abatement Board, exploring the possibility of civil forfeiture law if own remains unresponsive.
  • Member Bauer raised the possibility of pursuing a legislative response to the issue of disruptive rentals. In particular, talking with our representatives about the issue of disruptive rentals and absentee landlords. To this end, we discussed the possibility of  approaching other civic associations so that it is framed as a more wide-reaching issue.
  • Officer Musse agreed to scope out the household.
  • Concern remains about the speeding along Adelphi Road. Still difficult to cross 26th Place and Adelphi Road, even with the crossway and blinking lights. We will approach DPIE again.

V:  New and Old Business

  • President Mosley alerted the membership that Dottie McDaniel from the Chillum-Ray Association was unwell. A GoFundMe Page had been set up to help offset expenses while she is recovering.  She asked that the Association send support in the form of a donation. The membership voted unanimously to send the donation.
  • The membership voted unanimously to make a donation of $200.00 for the use of the church’s facilities for our meetings.

Golf Course

Member Robinson provided an update on UMD’s proposed “development” of the golf course.

  • UMD will take a minimum of three holes from the golf course for playing fields.
  • Representatives ( Peña-Melnyk, Rosappepe, Taveras) have mounted opposition to this proposed change.
  • University Park residents also oppose this proposal.
  • A letter of opposition was drafted by the College Park Council (presented by Denise Mitchell). However, the mayor voted against sending the letter of complaint thereby silencing the opposition.
  • Updates to come following on an upcoming Facilities Committee meeting.

The reduction of the golf course comes as a result of encroachments by Purple Line which will cross an area that presently serves as a practice track area; had the line moved ten feet over, this would have protected the entire lot. Metro offered to pay to relocate the track, which UMD turned down.

One of the alternatives suggested by those who oppose the reduction of the course is to simply place lights on existing unlit fields, thereby extending the serviceability of these fields.

Residents who oppose this proposal have also asked state delegates to consider legislation that would make the golf course permanent green space.

The association voiced their thanks to Norm Starkey who has taken the lead in connecting with other associations, and steering emergency meetings.

Community issues

  • No updates on “The Bus” service.
  • There has been inconsistent collection of yard waste. Some houses are addressed, while others on the same street, left behind. Reminder to the association that when this occurs residents should lodge complaints through 311, fines should be imposed when trash missed.
  • Similarly, mail delivery has gotten later.
  • Hole on Cool Spring Road, 311 call made, they indicated that it had been resolved but still there.
  • Appreciation for the county’s maintenance of median on Adelphi Road.
  • New U-turn sign placed on Adelphi/University, but it is still signaling an incorrect turn.

President Mickens-Mosley acknowledged these issues and noted that updates on these reported issues will be sent via the weekly Update emailed to the listserv.

VII. Year-End Celebration and Acknowledgements

President Mickens-Mosely thanked Member Ted Hull for his support and assistance throughout the year.

III. CountyClick311 Presentation: Jennifer Hawkins, Call Center Senior
Manager, Office of Community Relations along with representatives from DPWT & DPIE
• The County Click is primarily a call-center for non-emergency line that is county-related, for example, potholes.

• The agency received approximately 1.5 million service requests (2017). It receives
approximately 1200 calls a day with summer being the busiest time of the year, with
a peak number of requests standing at 1800. There are twenty four members of
staff, there are also bilingual agents and there is a translation service which assists
callers who speak neither English nor Spanish.

• The 311-call service runs from 7:00a.m.- 7:00 p.m. (Mon.-Fri.). The representatives
are considered emergency personnel, which means that the team still has to report
to work regardless of whether other agencies closed (e.g. weather events).
Process of submitting a requests

• Requests can be submitted in a number of ways. In addition to the call-in service,
there is also an online tool as well as a free mobile app (I-Phone and Android). To
find the app, please use “County Click 311” as keywords. The app allows you to be
mobile. The representative noted, for example, that if you are out and take a picture
of illegal dumping, the app has the capacity to identify the location of the dumping
and can automatically upload the address to the site (GPS capacity). The 311-
Representative noted that the mobile app is presently incomplete and “illegal
parking” and “code enforcement” are two elements that will be added in the future.

• It is also possible to submit requests via email, they received 22,000 emails last year
(CountyClick311@co.pg.md.us).

Do I need to self-identify if submitting a claim?
• You do not have to give your name when submitting a service request. Even if you
choose to not self-identify, it is possible to monitor the status once you have
included your email address as part of the service request.

• Once you have submitted the request the request will be routed to the appropriate
agency. Once the issue is resolved the case will be closed and you will receive an
email alert.

• Your email is not shared with anyone and your information remains confidential,
this allows you to report without risk of retaliation.

Community Issues Raised with Senior Manager Hawkins:
– Loud music in the community.
o Representative’s Response: Information shared with the police needs a location but the challenge for the community is in identifying the precise location.

– Large scale yard waste in the park. It appears as though it has been left by a tree
company– what is the expected length of response?
o Representative’s Response: This is handled by Maryland Park and Planning, but will take the information and liaise with Park Services.

– Drainage to be cleaned, submitted with no response. Not getting the service that is
being paid for. Concern that too much of the county’s work has been contracted out,
not done adequately because lack of supervision.
o Representative’s Response: Each request has a service level and an associated time frame for the request. For example, a drainage request has to be addressed in 60 days, if that time has passed you have the right to call back to have the issue escalated, this will reroute the request to a supervisor who will act on it.

– Man-hole about to give way along Cool Spring Road, people leave their lane to drive,
situation presents multiple hazards.

– Car on cider blocks (Cool Spring).
o Representative’s Response: If it is on cinder blocks it will be deemed abandoned because it is inoperable. Must be moved after 72 hours. Even if it on property and appears to be inoperable Code Enforcement will come out. With regard to concerns raised about illegal dumping, Council woman Taveras informed the membership that she recently had an environmental crimes bill passed. Funds have been allocated to mount community cameras to address illegal dumping. If there is a sighting of illegal dumping, this bill allows the assigned agents to alert and fine the property owners. Initially, they have targeted Ray Road and New Hampshire. Higher levels of reporting will initiate an investigation of the area report which will lead to which allows them to assess the viability of mounting cameras in specific locations. It is modeled after The District’s successes and are hoping to emulate that program.

The 311-representative noted that it is also possible to submit personal videos on illegal
dumping. This, in one instance, allowed them to identify the tags and are now prosecuting the dumper.

The Council-woman Taveras also indicated that she attempted to pass a bill that would
help restrict commercial/residential vehicle parking bill. The bill died but she intends to
re-introduce in the coming year. One of the features of the bill is that it includes a fee based on the number of cars per household (e.g. first car, free/second car, $25.00)
President Mickens-Mosley, in response to community concerns about strewn garbage
among other things, indicated that the Executive will send a “Good Neighbor Letter” to
violators. It will come from the Association thereby taking the pressure off of individuals
who have concerns.

IV: Councilwoman Deni Taveras – District 2 –New Constituent Services & Community
Outreach Director: Lindsey Wright.  Councilwoman Taveras introduced her new Constituent Services and Community Director, Lindsey Wright. Councilwoman Taveras provided an update on the Northern Gateway Meeting. Work is underway to brand and create a unified message for the area. The councilwoman invited the membership to go online to participate in the selection of the project’s logo. Councilwoman Taveras reminded the membership about the 4th Annual Senior Fall Fling, to be held on Friday November 9th.

The zoning rewrite bill has passed, a new zoning ordinance is now in place. It is expected that full implementation may take up to two years.

Councilwoman Taveras provided an update on regulation changes and short-term rentals (e.g. Airbnb). Taveras noted that there are approximately 6000 Airbnbs without
regulation. These are now restricting to owner-occupied units and owners must register
with the county. The total number of rental days cannot exceed 180 and a guest cannot
stay longer than 30 days and must pay hotel tax.

Members again asked that the County prioritize the kind of development that would build a beneficial relationship with schools and the environment. In particular, members voiced concern about expansion without adequate attention to traffic patterns or alternatively, housing development that attracts younger individuals without the needed amenities, e.g. schools. .

The Council-woman provided an update on the campaign finance bill. Campaign finance bill for campaign reform. [Note Washington Post update “To qualify for the program in Prince George’s, a candidate for county executive would have to collect 500 qualifying contributions of $150 or less; at-large council candidates would have to collect 250 contributions; and district council candidates would have to collect 150 contributions.” Individuals who have not filed a financial report cannot qualify and cannot use finance  money to pay off debt e.g. campaign debt.

V: COPS Report
Officer Musse indicated that he now has a better sense of the commercial parking issue and has been issuing 72-hour violation tickets. He noted that sometimes, simply having the violation sticker placed on the car initiates movement. Officer Musse indicated that the vehicle on cinder blocks mentioned earlier in the meeting was a “theft from owner” incident. He agreed to follow up with the individual.  Members reported on a truck that flipped on Adelphi and Cool Spring. The Association voiced their gratitude for his patrols in the area.

VI. New Business.
• Church is having a fall clean up 10/28, bring gloves and shovels.

• Member Kim Crews provided an update on the Wa Wa development (eight pump
gas station and mini-mart/Welcome to Adelphi sign). Edwards Way site has already
been approved. Developers were asked to place environmental fixes in relation to the creek. The traffic issue needs to be addressed with the state transportation board. Need to inquire how the initial traffic study was done to ensure that they are actually checking that they capturing the peak hours. They (WaWa) have committed to working on drainage and will police their own property.

• The membership discussed UMD’s pending proposal to reduce the size of the golf
course. There is general opposition to the reduction of this open, green space and
members are working with our representatives and residents of University Park to
voice formal opposition to this development.

August 2018 Meeting Minutes

Cool Spring Terrace Civic Association

Date: August 25, 2018

Officers in Attendance: President Marguerite Mickens-Mosley, and Secretary, Michelle V. Rowley.

Also in attendance: Pamela Boozer-Strother and Juwan Blocker ( Candidates for BOE Dist. 3), Council Member Deni Tavares and COPS Liaison Officer Raymond Musse.

Members in Attendance: Approximately 22

  1. Welcome/Gathering

The meeting was called to order at 11:03 a.m. with President Mickens-Mosley presiding.  President Mickens-Mosley introduced the meeting’s speakers and announced adjustments to the agenda.

  1. Announcements and Officers’ Reports:
  • The Treasurer’s Report will be available for the next meeting.
  • The minutes were approved before the meeting concluded.
  • Board of Education: Pamela Boozer-Strother and Juwan Blocker – – Candidates for Board of Education (Dist. 3)

Ms. Boozer-Strother addressed the membership.  The candidate noted that her interest in serving began as a parent advocate. In this capacity, she became concerned about issues of overcrowding, equity in deliverables, the reduction of arts as part of the curriculum and the limited connection between economic development and the educational system, despite efforts to build a Gateway Arts District.

Members raised the following concerns:

  • Need to resist pitting the environment against the need for schools.
  • Presence of mold at some schools
  • Teacher pay inequity

In response, Boozer-Strothers notes that as a parent-advocate she understood the community’s concern about the proposed school site. The present Board was told to stop their advance because of community objections .

Boozer-Strother regarded teachers as “best informers,” on issues such as mold but noted that better lines of communication are still needed to facilitate reporting.

Fair teacher pay remains one of her top concerns, particularly since it was one of the key reasons for the area’s 15% turn over.  She noted that teacher retention, training and professional development were also important.

She reminded the membership that one of the key ballot issues on Nov 6 allows voters to decide whether all of the state’s casino proceeds should be directed to education. The bill will set up a November vote, which if approved, would create a constitutional amendment dictating that the funds go to education.

Juwan Blocker

Blocker, in presenting his credentials, stated that he was motivated to run based on his experience of serving as a student member to the Board.  Now a student at  Bowie State University, Blocker expressed dissatisfaction with the way  politics tend to get in the way of students’ education.  By way of accomplishments, he noted that when the BOE wanted to cut the students’ creative writing program he helped to facilitate an initiative that reinstated the program after working with others to update the curriculum so that it met  the needed standards. He indicated a commitment to restoring transparency, if elected. He also voiced his opposition to any plans that would build schools on sites where the community was not on board, particularly if there was environmental fall-out.

Members asked Blocker to address issues of transparency, gang activity, language programs, and parental outreach strategies.

Blocker centered  civic and parent/teacher associations as critical aspects of any plan that was reaching out to parents.  He suggested that the members of the BOE should be reaching out to these associations and that it his goal to attend as many association meetings as possible.

Boozer Strothers also emphasized the parent/school connection and indicated that there was a need to invest in and support those PTAs that were not as strong.

Blocker also highlighted the importance of face-to-face outreach e.g. going into the community to meet with parents rather than having parents come out to meet representatives.  He said that it was important to canvas neighborhoods on weekends in order to meet with parents.

IV: Councilwoman Deni Taveras – District 2 – Letter of Commitment and

Introduction of her new Constituent Services & Community Outreach Director: Lindsey Wright

Councilwoman Taveras informed the association of UMD’s plans to reduce the size of the golf course to institute parking. It will move from an 18-hole to a 9-hole course.

The membership voiced opposition to this change noting that the course is one of the top ten nationally, and that it is environmentally friendly with a water fowl area while also serving as a sanctuary for monarch butterflies.

Taveras confirmed that the proposed middle school will move to Adelphi Elementary. She confirmed that all processes have been stopped until the issue can be resolved.

Members again asked that the County prioritize the kind of development that would build a beneficial relationship with schools and the environment.  In particular, members voiced concern about expansion without adequate attention to traffic patterns or alternatively, housing development that attracts younger individuals without the needed amenities, e.g. schools.

V: Carol Hurwitch – When We All Vote [“WWAV”]

Member Hurwitch used her allocated time to encourage members to participate in the upcoming general elections.  She placed emphasis on the importance of getting younger folks to vote, and she challenged everyone to pursue a multiplier effect i.e. the need to do a bit more than we did at the last election. Finally, Member Hurwitch directed our attention to When We All Vote (WWAV), an online communication campaign, targeting young people, The site also allows you to find out if you are registered to vote.   The site also tells you how your state is bent toward voting access or voter suppression.  Finally, Member Hurwitch reminded us of a few important dates – Change of party affiliation (deadline: October 16) and  early voting window (Oct 25, 2018 – Nov 1, 2018).

VI:  COPS Report

Officer Musse alerted the membership to the presence of a growing homeless community in the woods abutting the trail. He noted that while there are no dedicated homeless shelters in Maryland, he intends to walk the area with Department of Social Services representatives to explore possible options.

He also reported on a gang-related stabbing of a teenager in the woods.

Officer Musse reminded the membership that while he reports on incidents that have occurred in the woods, this jurisdiction falls under Parks and Recreation. However, after filing a report, members should feel free to convey the information to him.

In response to ongoing concerns about speeding along Adelphi. Officer Musse said that he would explore the possibility of securing  speed display board that alerts drivers to their approaching speed.

VII. New Business

President Mosley informed the membership that Jon Robinson has drafted a letter on behalf of the Association to voice the community’s concerns about the environmental impact of developing the golf course.  President Mosley also encouraged other members of the community to send letters to UMD.

VIII. Old Business

We agreed to delay the resumption of the community’s the annual block party.

Click-311 representatives were scheduled to join us but have now indicated a preference for our October meeting.

We discussed the possibility of organizing to get folks out to protest the golf course development meeting , possibly in conjunction College Park Woods to build numbers.

    • The minutes from February 2018 were read and approved.

    • President Mickens-Mosley updated the membership on plans for the upcoming Election Forum. The forum’s planning committee has been working to host a meet-the-candidate forum for candidates running for county council, as well as the three delegate seats for the District. The goal is to ensure that it is held before the primaries. The Forum has been confirmed for Saturday, May 19th from 2-4 pm at the Christ Scientist Church, 8300 Adelphi Road.  Member Carol Hurwitch volunteered to help with the planning.
    • Clean Up/Green Up: Member Kim Crews invited members to support and participate in the upcoming Clean Up/Green Up event, which is to be held on April 28.  Last year, those who turned out were only able to cover Cool Spring Road.  Greater participation needed if we are going to cover the entire community.
  4. Agenda Item V: Norberto Martinez (Langley Park Civic Association)
    • We were joined by Mr. Martinez, who brought greetings from the Langley Park Civic Association. He introduced his organization and provided an overview of their programming and upcoming events. These included:
      • Candidate Forum
      • Clean Up Green Up
      • Family Walk
      • Langley Park Day
      • Health Fairs
      • Back to School Jam (school supplies for elementary/middle and high school students)
      • Soccer Team (there is a need for soccer fields)
    • Mr. Martinez noted that the Association has plans to become a 501C3 as well as expressing an interest in maintaining an on-going relationship with the CSTCA assisting each other with various projects and events.
  5. Agenda Item VI: Ari Kapner (Tesla Solar Energy)
    • Kapner gave an overview of some of the company’s accomplishments by noting that the company’s Tesla Power Wall was the first product to go off grid, it is presently back ordered.
    • Tesla’s goal is to create the first off-grid utility. Solar, he noted, allows you to have predictable bills.    In order to acquire the service the consumer needs to pass a credit check and their roof needs to qualify.  Roof does not need to be new, if work needed company can help with financing. Once unit installed, it can often take up to two months for PEPCO to inspect; following on the inspection, they will change meter to a net neutral meter.
    • In the company’s overview, Mr. Kapner noted that buying the system outright was analogous to buying your power thirty years in advance at COSTCO.  He reminded the Association that there are tax credits that in play for 2019.  Further, he pointed to another of their products, the solar battery, analogous to having your own “clean generator.”  This battery is designed in such a way that the hardware does not change, rather, future updates will come directly to the system to keep it up to date and functional. When asked about solar roof shingles, he noted that these are still in development. Primary reason to go solar – a good balance of savings and care for the environment.
  6. Agenda Item VII: Taylor Brown (Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative)
    • The Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative (TNI) was started in 2012 under County Executive, Rushern Baker.  The Initiative was designed to consolidate and centralize services by bringing them to the community.  The Initiative began with six communities (of which Langley Park was one, Norberto Martinez, present at the meeting, was able to speak of the TNI’s successes in his community.)
    • Community teams are made up of a representative from the various county agencies and they work together and with the community to provide support for needs and community based leadership. Before leaving, they work to ensure that a strong community leadership team has been established. While CSTA is not one of the Initiatives target areas, TNI can still provide support if we work with one of the designated areas e.g. Langley Park.
  7. Agenda Item VIII: COPS Report
    • President Mickens introduced our new liaison officer, Raymond Musse.  Our former liaison, Cpl. Tiwari, is now serving as a resource officer in Bladensburg.
    • Officer Musse noted that he was aware of and attentive to the issue of speeding on Adelphi Road.  Members alerted him to a single-car, fatal accident which occurred at 4:30 am (04/21) in the proximity of the National Archives.
    • Member Halota asked if there was a way of knowing about police-related activity in the neighborhood (e.g. helicopters flying overhead).  Officer Musse indicated that would be no immediate way to know, and if there were concerns members could call the nearest station or him directly.
    • Members gave Officer Musse an overview of issues that continue to be of concern to the community. These included:
      • Noise (decibel/time) – Officer Musse indicated that it was important to call in these complaints and to secure a case number that he can then use to keep tabs or generate a report. He noted that homeowners could be fined for noise violations.
      • Ongoing dumping of materials, yard waste and mattresses along Cool Spring Road. In those instances, Officer Musse asked that we take note of the tags, as well as take pictures to send to 311.
      • Barking dogs – Recommendation to call ASPCA, Animal Control to conduct a site investigation.
      • Music – Clubs beyond allowed hours, but unable to say exactly where the noise comes from. Officer Musse observed that these were hard to shut down, but in numbers, folks calling repeated can make a difference.
      • Speeding: Speeding on Cool Spring Road has increased since the installation of NO PARKING sign.  Adelphi Rd also has seen an increase in speeding, particularly, near 26th Pl where an accident occurred that morning.
      • Culverts along CSR are also in need of cleaning. Rainwater floods streets because the drain is clogged with rotting vegetation and debris, as well as overgrown vegetation.
      • Bates Recycling: combining trash and recycling onto one truck. Leaving debris on roadway, broken cans, up to 66-day wait for can replacement
      • Traffic lights on Adelphi Rd. & University Blvd. Old and new lights hanging. New installs are still not operational months after installation.
      • Need for a picture speed trap along Adelphi Rd. to curb speeding.
    • Officer Musse contact information: Raymond I. Musse, RIMusse@co.pg.md.us , POFC Musse#2943, COPS-A District I
  8. Agenda Item VII: Impromptu Addresses – Attending Candidates and Representatives
    • Senator Victor Ramirez: 
      • Sen. Ramirez reminded the membership that until redistricting occurred, he represented Cool Spring Terrace for twelve years in Annapolis. He voiced his continued commitment to the community and asked for the membership’s support in his bid for State’s Attorney.
      • Ramirez reminded members when he represented our district and still loves the area.  He spoke about programs he developed and legislative passed.  For instance the 24-hour Crisis Information Line (Ramirez to forward information and website link).  He has held several Town Hall meetings and has worked with our Councilwoman Deni Taveras in sponsoring a Work Release Program.  Ramirez stated that more resources are needed in the state’s attorney office in order to address non-violent crimes.  Much involvement from the private sector is needed.  (Click here https://victorramirez.com/ for more information on Senator Ramirez’s campaign for State’s Attorney)
    • Councilmember Deni Taveras
      • Taveras gave an update on the 2019 Proposed Budget and the budget listening session.  She gave a brief overview of the status of the county budget and proposed revenue and expenses. Councilwoman Taveras reminded members she is running for a second term for District 2 County Council, and had recently participated in the Langley Park Candidate Forum, as well as participating in the CSTCA forum on May 19th.   Taveras reminded the membership that she has always been and will continue to be accessible.  As a resident of the area shares our concerns. Several members brought up issues with our Recycling and Trash Collection Service.  Mr. Michael Harris, Director of Constituent Services and Community Outreach for Councilwoman Taveras collected the concerns from members to address with the agencies and provide assistance in resolving issues.
  9. Agenda Item IX: D. Michael Lyles, Esq. Executive Director for PG County’s Human Relations Commission
    • Briefly spoke about the increasing problem of Human Trafficking and the increasing problem in the county.  Mr. Lyles stated many predators rely on the fact that their victims often have “uncontrolled access” to the internet, which is the primary problem with enticing and luring young girls and boys into the human trafficking arena.  Mr. Lyles and his department have started educating residents in the county about these problems, as well as steps for prevention.  He distributed a Public Awareness Poster and gave the Human Trafficking Website and number.
    • Human Trafficking – formerly titled “prostitution” has increased considerably in the county. Many young girls are being forced into this activity and their ages range from 11 to 25.  Another matter is “Domestic Servitude” or modern-day slavery.  Because of these problems, the county developed a Human Trafficking Task Force.  Regulation was passed to address the issue.  It is a criminal offense in the state of Maryland, and any person under the age of 18 is automatically considered a victim.  The Task Force has been instrumental in identifying and closing residential brothels that have popped up in rural areas.  They also finding it happening more and more in apartment complexes.  Massage Parlors are also prevalent in the county and another problem being addressed.  Mr. Lyles has worked with Councilwoman Deni Taveras in closing numerous brothers just in the Langley Park area.
    • The Department of Justice provided a 1.3 million dollar grant to collaborate with agencies across the state to deal with the crisis of human trafficking.  Hotels are a target as some are accepting money from these individuals for sex trafficking.  Sadly, 40-50% of these victims are juveniles.  Homeless children are often victims.
    • Member Cynthia Baur asked if they go into the schools to address this issue directly with students and teachers, educating them on the hazards.  Mr. Lyles answered in the affirmative but the reduced grant they were provided (150K) doesn’t provide enough funds to reach out to every county school.  Therefore, only five schools in the county are available to receive this education.  When working with the schools, they [the Task Force] can only send certified individuals (e.g., Nurses, Coaches, Principals, Counselors, etc.).  The reason for this is those who go into the school to speak need to have the expertise and experience.  Volunteers need to understand and empathize with the victim so they can effectively communicate and relate.  However, Mr. Lyles states it is the goal of the Task Force to have this education become a part of the school curriculum.
    • A question was asked about volunteers:  Mr. Lyles stated volunteers will need to be trained but are used mostly for speaking engagements.  The budget of $150K is to cover the entire county. Mr. Lyles’ department has over 900 employees and this money is being used for Training and Educational Materials. As most of the materials have been developed, but more funds are needed.
  10. Old Business:
    • School Buses:  Are still U-turning, and backing up on neighborhood streets even after the no parking signage.  The signage prevents residents from parking on or near the curb opening up the line of visibility but is not enough for buses to maneuver. Unfortunately, residents are still parking in these marked areas.
    • Crosswalk at 26th Place and Adelphi Rd. Signage from DPWT has yet to be installed as was stated at our October 2017 meeting.  President Mosley sent a follow up email to Carolyn Ward, DPWT’s Community Liaison who sent the message to their Technical Engineers who stated they would review the area and signage to see if the current signs were large and visible enough. They did not address if a digital pedestrian sign would be installed.
  11. Motion to Adjourn
    • President Mosley thanked all the guests for their time and valuable information.
    • President Mosley reminded the members and guests in attendance about the CSTCA Candidate Forum.  The Forum has been confirmed for Saturday, May 19th from 2-4 pm at the Christ Scientist Church, 8300 Adelphi Road.  Volunteers are still needed to assist with set-up/clean-up, as well as technical assistance with the PA system.  Glenn Kirkland has agreed to moderator the segment for Delegate and we will have a High School Student Volunteer – Ellie Reyes who will moderate the segment for County Council.
    • A Reminder about the neighborhood clean next Saturday, April 28th.  We will meet at 8:30 am at President Mosley’s home.  A continental breakfast will be provided and a pizza lunch upon conclusion.
    • Meeting adjourned at 1:35 p.m.

Next membership meeting will be held on, June 23, 2018.


CSTCA April Minutes 2018

Meeting Minutes: February 2018

Date: February 24, 2018

Officers in Attendance: President Marguerite Mickens-Mosley, Treasurer Anika Halota, and Secretary Michelle V. Rowley.

Also in attendance: Mr. Zachary Hare, Solar Energy World Representative, Candidates Mr. Matt Dernoga, Ms. Candace Hollingsworth, Mr. Ashanti F. Martinez, Ms. Deni Tavares and Constituency Outreach Officer for Councilor Tavares, Mr. Michael Harris.
Members in Attendance: Approximately 16

I. Welcome/Gathering

The meeting was called to order at 11:16 a.m. with President Mickens-Mosley presiding.
Michael Harris apologized for his absence from a previous meeting,meeting; this was a result of a recurring knee injury. The Association welcomed him and extended our wishes for continued recovery.

II. Announcements and Officers’ Reports:

  • Treasurer Halota provided an update on the Association’s account, which presently stands at $1632.00. The Association gave an end of year gift of appreciation to the church ($200.00).
  • The minutes from December 2017 were read and approved.
  • The agenda was then re-ordered to first facilitate the candidates who were present followed by Mr. Hare’s presentation.

III. Candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates (District 22), Mr. Ashanti Martinez
Candidate for the Maryland Hose of Delegates (District 21), Mr. Matt Dernoga
Candidate for County Council (District 2) Ms. Candace Hollingsworth, Mayor of Hyattsville
Candidate for County Council (District 2) Ms. Deni Tavares, Incumbent

Mr. Martinez realized that we are not in his district only after extending a request for time at the Association’s meeting. He used his time to outline why he was running for office, these reasons included the urgent need for new leadership from folks who share their community’s values and the need for new, younger energy.

Matt Dernoga then spoke to the Association. In his presentationpresentation, he centered his commitment to environmental issues and highlighted previous work done on this issue – as a student at the University of Maryland (UMD) he was a member of UMD for Clean Energy, advocating for clean energy solutions, and he worked to establish an Office of Sustainability at UMD.

At the county level (District 1) he has worked to pass thirty different pieces of legislation – some of the highlights include code enforcement, discontinuance of polystyrene, increasing minimum wage, addressing food insecurity through improved access to locally grown food.

He noted that he was running on a platform that was pro-environment and pro-labor. He was committed to maintaining A+ constituent services, and that it is possible to get hold of him within a day or two at the most.

He has continued to walk the communities and signaled his willingness to walk with the Saturday CSTCA Walking Group. His community walking sessions have highlighted concerns about litter, a desire to protect trees and environment and he identified himself as an ally on these issues.

Member Ted Hull asked the candidate about his willingness to sponsor a bottle deposit bill.

  •  Candidate Dernoga noted that there was momentum for such a bill in 2015, this died off and it would be important to think about how to re-energize the process. Momentum, he noted, is challenged by the local departments that benefit from this recycling, there is concern that such a bill might siphon resources away from those agencies.

Member Andrea Kenner asked the candidate to speak to improved options for the removal of hazard waste.

  • Candidate Dernoga noted that on an issue like that he would be willing to work with the council member to advocate for safe removal of hazardous waste because those issues are addressed at local county meetings.

Member Cynthia Bauer asked the candidate to talk about the communication strategies he uses to communicate with constituents.

  •  Candidate Dernoga observed that his preference was for door to doordoor-to-door contact and that this was going to be a feature of his time in office, not just in election years. He has found that there is no better way to find out what the issues than to walk the streets. He has also used social media and has worked to use a range of differentof different platforms.

Member Mickens Mosley (M) asked the candidate to speak to his commitment to the youth, particularly the need to have more young people involved in the political process.

  • Candidate Dernoga noted that the critical hours for young people are 3-6 p.m. when they get out of school. He noted that he intends to make a push in terms of going into schools and classroom and talking about how he got involved in politics. He spoke to the importance of working with young people of color who might serve as role models. He noted that he has been pro-active in terms of inviting young people into core campaign meetings so that they can see how the process works.

Candidate Dernoga was followed by candidate for Council, Candace Hollingsworth.

Candidate Hollingsworth, current Mayor of Hyattsville, provided an overview of her background. She is originally from Memphis, Tennessee, she moved to Hyattsville MD, and her children are in the local public school system. She is driven by the desire to build a community that her children, when adults, will see as a place that they would like to come back home to – a place with professional opportunities, cultural assets, and diversity. Will work collaboratively toward change.

She highlighted the importance of customer service – and that county administrators needed to take the lead on this. She emphasized her aversion for poor public service and committed to leading by example on this.

Member Michelle Rowley asked the candidate to speak to the young people caught in the Deferred Action Child Arrival (DACA) debate as well as deportation threats to members of the Salvadoran community.

Candidate Hollingsworth observed that responses to these issues were indicative of a community’s moral compass. She noted that in her capacity as Mayor of Hyattsville, one of her very first meetings was with CASA de Maryland. She has worked collaboratively to gauge interest in extending community based votes to no non-citizens, to strengthen community policing so that individuals can report crimes without fear of retribution, and to establish an Immigration Services Working Group – tasked with coordinating resources so that various departments can have greater synergy with each other. This Working Group she noted was subsequently supported with funds from the Vera Justice Center and support from Councilor Taveras.

She also noted that Hyattsville has signed on to the amicus brief emerging out of San Francisco. This brief aims to push back against removal of resources for cities that have been identified as “sanctuary cities.”

Incumbent Councilor Deni Taveras then spoke briefly. She pointed to her very active presence in the community for the last four years. She pointed to the tangible examples of her commitments, these included key pieces of legislation and initiatives such as “Take Pride in our Community Initiative,” her work to curb willful evictions, attention to trash collection, curbing the presence of prostitution brothels and beer houses. She also pointed to her work on to reduce residential overcrowding in rentals, as well as her support for immigration services and language access. Councilor Tavares also noted that she has been very aggressive in asking for funds for the District and has brought 1millon dollars into community and has invested 50 million into repaving roadways.

She concluded by reiterating her support toward the protection of the Cool Spring Forest. She encouraged the membership to reach out to her with our concerns.

IV. Zachary Hare, Solar Energy

Mr. Hare began his presentation by thanking the Association for the invitation and noting that inthat in light of increasing environment threats – chemical leaks, fracking, oil spills, climate change – there are significant advantages to going green.

He noted that in terms reducing greenhouse gases solar is second only to wind. In one month, Mr. Hare noted that a 1 kWh solar system prevents 170 lbs. of coal from being burned and 300 lbs. of CO2 from being released.

He also noted that 35 million Americans have made switch to solar power and that solar costs are now down given that demand has increased.

He also noted that the recent administrative 30% tariff that was placed on solar related imports will not affect his company’s pricing.

Solar, he informed, is installed every 2.5 minutes in the United States. It is reliable, given that the satellites are powered by solar, it is easily adaptable, there is no need to have someone come out to do maintenance, they monitor the system from afar if something goes wrong.

Member Andrea Kenner asked Mr. Hare to speak to the structural integrity needed, e.g. if the roof secures a leak what happens. Mr. Hare noted that the company offers a roof penetration warranty and that they do not install on roofs that do not have the right integrity. If the owner wishes to change their roof at a later date, the company will come out to remove and replace the system, nominal charge for the service. He also noted that Solar Energy emerged out of a merger between a solar company and a roofing company. If a new roof is needed prior to installation, they are able to replace the roof at cost.

He further explained that the installation method used by Solar Energy avoids damage, when bolts are used they can sometimes explode – his company uses a “rail system.” They do not offer systems that track the sun and HOAs he noted can restrict the mode of installation but legislatively, they cannot refuse homeowners who wish to install a system.

Member Carol Hurwitch asked about shade coverage, how can a potential consumer know how much of the roof will need to be covered in relation to shade and the orientation of the room. Mr. Hare noted that his company works with software that simulates shade given pitch and weather history for your zip code. They come out and do sun-eye readings before designing a system. He advised folks that it is always better to have the company come out rather than assume that your home was subject to too much shade for solar. He advised against purchasing a solar back-up battery system at this point, noting that the technology was still very much in its infancy.

Member Hurwitch asked about the company’s willingness to work with community co-ops, if there was a critical mass in order to facilitate a discount. He noted that the company does offer this possibility but the number has to be fairly substantial to be cost effective, they recently won a bid in Montgomery County, but this was a grouping of 150 people.

Federal and State Subsidies
Mr. Hare then noted that there are a number of incentives to help offset the cost of installation. These include:

  •  Federal Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit of 30% of qualified expenses, which rolls over if not all claimed in a given year e.g. a 30,000 system would yield a 9,000 Fed. Tax credit. This is locked in at 30% through 2019.

State and Local Solar Incentives

  • $1000 Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) state grant for systems that are smaller than 20 kilowatts (kW), is located at your primary residence, and that your installer has the standard certification.
  • For residents in PG County there is a $5000 property tax grant for purchasing or a $2000 grant for leasing.

He also noted that it is possible to sell your SRECs solar credits (energy generated but not used)– he did however alert the Association to the fact that SREC credits are more beneficial in DC than in Maryland. In Maryland 1SREC = $8.00, in DC it is worth $400.00 (supply/demand – greater buy in for solar in Maryland)

Member Andrea Kenner raised the question of aesthetics– the panels just aren’t attractive, what might that do to the value of your home.

Mr. Hare noted that the newer panels are flat black and tend to be a bit more attractive. He noted that a Berkeley study found that the installation added value to the home and he also noted that it is factored into Fannie Mae appraisal of homes.

Finally, he summarized by observing that when questioning whether solar is too expensive it is important to remember the incentives, the fact that electricity rates have increased by 4.5% over the last decade, that electricity grids are old, some unsafe and the maintenance of this old system is being passed on to consumers.

He noted that his company offers a very competitive option to purchase $0 incentive financing, 18month delay on repayment to give you time to acquire your tax credit. They also offer financing at 2.99% for 12 years

For those wishing to lease this is possible with the option to purchase at a later point in the agreement. The systems come with a 20-year warranty. And for those interested in leasing, you may not be eligible for the larger incentives but you do get  $2000.00 credit from the county.

He also noted that in terms of home re-sale, it is more likely that your home will be purchased by a younger person, and generationally there is even a greater interest in solar driven homes.

V. COPS Report

President Mickens Mosley conveyed the report on behalf of Cpl. T. We were reminded that if we see something suspicious, we should call 911, if an object, do not pick it up as this tampers with evidence.

VI. New Business

Candidates’ Forum
President Mickens Mosley announced that the Association was working to host a debate for candidates running for Delegate and Council. She noted that the goal was to have it scheduled before the primaries. Invitations will be extended to surrounding associations.

The Executive Board is presently exploring a location for the event.

Member Hermitt Mosley (H) suggested the possibility of a membership meeting in the coming month (March) to help facilitate the process.

President Mickens Mosley noted that the Executive Board would consider a special meeting if planning does not align with Association’s existing schedule of meetings.

Member Carol Hurwitch volunteered to help with the organization of the debate

Clean Up/Green Up

President Mickens Mosley solicited support for the community’s clean-up day. Members who turned out in 2017 were only able to complete Cool Spring Road. Point persons for this upcoming activity are Members Kim Crews and Cynthia Bauer.

Member Hurwitch thanked the invited speakers, and reminded the membership that Tom Dernoga, father of Matt Dernoga, wrote the legal brief that helped the membership to save the Cool Spring Forest.

Motion to adjourn 1:15

Next meeting will be held on April 28, 2018.
