Another summer has passed us by. It was filled with yard sales, picnics and of course, our crab feast fund-raiser at Higgins Crab House North. The event netted $4,400 for Friends of Possibilities, which supports youths with Type 1 diabetes.
The end of summer and early fall were not without incident. Our neighborhood was subjected to sounds of engines roaring and tires squealing. As a member of the OC Motor Vehicle Task Force, I can tell you the Mayor, City Council, Police Chief and civic leaders are committed to eliminating future acts of lawlessness.
Delmarva Power is currently replacing our neighborhood’s original underground electric wires north of 139th Street. While this has not affected the newly-paved 141st Street, some yards and parking lots have been disturbed in this effort that will ultimately make our electric service more dependable and reliable.
Stop at Fiesta Park and see our new pollinating garden! This project has been spearheaded by our beautification chairperson, Vance Row. Thanks, Vance, for adding to the beauty of our park! You’ll find photos of the garden elsewhere in this issue.
If you know of a public area in our neighborhood that needs sprucing up, please let the board members know.
As of this writing, the public hearing before the OC Planning and Zoning Commission over the proposed car wash planned for the Phillips Restaurant property has been withdrawn. We will keep you updated as developments unfold.
CWCA members will gather Dec. 10 to spread Christmas cheer throughout the neighborhood with our annual caroling party. See below for details. Rumor has it Santa Claus may make an appearance!
As always, please feel free to reach out to any board member with questions or concerns. On behalf of the entire board, we extend our best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving and a merry Christmas.
