We are asking all residents for a Call-To-Action to deny this alcoholic beverage license.  This business will bring an increase in police calls, loitering and traffic, and a feared resurrected venue that would portend a reversal of positive trends taking place in the neighborhood.  Therefore, we are encouraging all residents to sign a petition.  Also, come out to the public hearing because, this would affect your community.

If any residents are in need of transportation please contact Councilwoman Taveras’ office at (301) 952-4436 no later than January 22, 2020.  They will have (2) locations pick-ups at Rollingcrest Community Center and Langley Park Community Center.

Project to restore erosion damage along the Northwest Branch hiker-biker trail

By Andrea Kenner

Here are some photos I took this morning of the work that has already been done to restore the section of the Northwest Branch Trail near the power lines that cross Cool Spring Road.

They laid the big rocks along the curve of the creek and built up the bank beside the part of the trail that had eroded away. It looks like the next step will be to roll out some new asphalt and repave the missing parts of the trail.
