The Bush River Community Council is in its first year of meeting, and has already outgrown its existing location. The June 20 meeting will be held at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center in Abingdon and is scheduled to feature APG BRAC manager Karen Holt.
Here is a letter from the council chair, John Paff, unedited in full.
Over the last 3 months, the Bush River Community Council has discussed, informed, and taken action on many issues concerning the Bush River area. We have worked with the County Council and the County Executives office to discuss the concerns of Perryman residents over the proposed bridge into Perryman, concerns over trash and debris at our parks and in the Bush River, especially railroad ties floating in the river. The Council is currently working with Harford County Parks and Rec. to adopt a park to take an active role in keeping our parks clean. One hot button issue among the group has been the run down businesses and the adult book stores along the Chesapeake Science and Security Corridor.
We will be meeting on Monday June 20, 2011 from 6:30-8:30pm. Due to the increased # in attendees and the needs of the Council we have decided to move locations. The Anita C. Leight Estuary Center (700 Otter Point Rd. Abingdon, MD 21009) has been kind enough to offer us their meeting room. This months meeting will be especially important to the members of our community as we will have Karen Holt, BRAC Manager for APG. She will be presenting on BRAC's current projects and what we can expect in the future. If you have any questions or concerns about the future of BRAC in Harford County, I strongly encourage you to attend our June meeting.
We can be found online at http://www.facebook.com/BushRiver and we encourage all local business owners to attend as well. Any business in attendance will be announced as we prefer to support our local businesses.
