Trees and Shrubs

 

During the Covid Pandemic there has been a significant increase in the number of residents using our sidewalks and roadways for exercise and simply as a way to get out of the house and get some fresh air. Predictably, with increased foot, skateboard, tricycle and bicycle traffic out there, Town Hall has received an increased number of complaints regarding the trimming of trees and shrubs located on private property near sidewalks and also those located in curb lawns (the grass space between the sidewalk and the curb).

Therefore, we wanted to give you a gentle reminder to be considerate of your neighbors who are out there walking, jogging and bicycling.  If you have trees or plants or shrubs growing on your property adjacent to the sidewalk please remember to trim that vegetation on a regular basis so that they do not overhang the sidewalk or grow in such a way as to encroach on the sidewalk, thereby impeding passage. We also request that if you have added any plants or shrubs to the curb lawn in front of your home that you also keep them trimmed so that they do not impede people who are walking on the sidewalk.

Finally, many homes have trees growing in the curb lawn in front of the house. The County does not often come out to maintain these trees unless the trees present a public safety hazard or are in such bad condition that the trees need to have large branches removed or need to be cut down completely and removed. If you have a curbside tree that appears to present a hazard or is dying please do not hesitate to contact Town Hall about it. We will take a look at the tree in question and then contact the County Department of Public Works so that they can examine the tree and decide what action needs to be taken. Since the trees are not routinely maintained by the County, we would encourage homeowners to trim small branches that appear to be dead or which are over-hanging the sidewalks and may impede other residents who are using the sidewalks. In dry periods we would also encourage you to provide some water for those trees as well.

 

Thanks for your help!

Latest News

***“Enclave” Property VOTE status***

 

Dear CCA Property Owners:

 

As many of you know, on Oct. 6, 2020, the Crofton Civic Association mailed ballots to all property owners residing in the CCA’s tax district related to the purchase of the 7-acre parcel of land known as the Enclave Property at Crofton’s front entrance.

 

A deadline was set for Oct. 16th, but after numerous reports by citizens that they had not received their ballots in the mail, we decided to extend the deadline to Oct. 23rd.  Unfortunately, that too has proven to be an overly optimistic return date as each day since the 23rd, Town Hall has continued to receive ballots, including today.

 

Our goal from the beginning of this process was to get ALL eligible voters to make their voices heard on this important issue. At the very least, we wanted to have a sufficient number of responses to constitute a definitive vote (50% plus 1) either for or against the purchase, per the County’s regulation. As of the 23rd, that number was not achieved. Nor has it been achieved since…but it is close.

 

In consultation with the county executive’s office, including the County Attorney, we have been informed that there is no deadline requirement by the County for this type of vote and that we are welcome to take as much time as is needed to achieve a definitive vote.

 

Therefore, the CCA’s Board of Directors has decided to continue the acceptance of verified ballots until such time as a definitive vote, either for or against, is achieved. We encourage those who have already voted to reach out to your neighbors and let them know that there is still time for their vote to count!

 

Additionally, Town Hall staff will be reaching out to those property owners that did not respond to make sure they did, in fact, receive a ballot. We want to make sure that ALL property owners have a truly fair chance to be heard on this issue.

 

We thank you for your patience!
