National Night Out is TONIGHT 8/7th from 6pm to 8pm

Is your neighborhood hosting an event?  If not, join your fellow Huntingtown residents for National Night Out(NNO) TONIGHT Tuesday evening August 7th, 2018 from 6 to 8 p.m. The Huntingtown Citizens Association(HCA) is coordinating a gathering at the picnic benches in the heart of Huntingtown Town Center(4300 Hunting Creek Rd)…just look for the NNO banner and some freebie giveaway items.

Bring your family and a picnic dinner or buy your food inside the local stores. We will have a craft for the kids.  You will run into some old pals, and hopefully make some new ones.  We’ve created a Facebook event, but please share with your neighbors who might prefer the old-fashioned way of communicating.

NNO is a community building campaign that promotes camaraderie and police-community partnerships to make our neighborhoods safer and more caring places to live.  In Calvert County, the Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse, Inc (CASSA) partners with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and the Maryland State Police barrack “U”, officers will be stopping by our event too.

Hope to see you there!

How to preserve rural character & have vibrant Town Centers too?

Purpose, Mission & Visions… that is the title of Chapter 1 of the May 2018 draft of the Calvert County Comprehensive Plan. Why is this even important to me, you ask?

This is the official policy document to guide a slew of functional and smaller plans, including the Huntingtown Town Center master plan.  All these plans have rules and ordinances that do affect you; your commute to work, your home value, the taxes you pay, your water supply, your children’s school, the rural character for which you have remained here or which you moved here to enjoy.

This Wednesday July 18th at 7pm the Planning Commission(PC) will begin a detailed review of the May 2018 draft of the Comp Pan, beginning with Ch 1.  PC meetings take place at the Harriet Brown Community Center at 901 Dares Beach Rd in Prince Frederick. Public is welcome, but public comments are not welcome. You can e-mail your comments with Calvert 2040 Comp Plan in the subject line here:  PZ@calvertcountymd.gov

If you can’t attend the meeting, see if your friend or neighbor can attend and share information with you. Read on please…
