We invite you to participate in Plan2040:Community Engagement@Home , an online open house, to comment on draft elements of Plan2040, the plan for development of Anne Arundel County for the next 20 years.
While social distancing requirements keep us from holding in person public meetings, the County has used innovative technology to set up an interactive website where you can review draft elements of Plan2040 and provide comments.
The online open house will be available from August 5 - September 10, 2020. You can visit the website any time that fits your schedule.
Please share this email with organizations and groups you are involved with, neighbors, family, and friends. The more people we hear from, the more this plan can reflect the perspectives of all of Anne Arundel County.

The CCA has been advised by the State Mosquito Control Section that mosquito fogging operations will begin in Anne Arundel County tonight. That means that the first fogging in Crofton should be next Tuesday, July 21 (weather permitting).
This notice is to inform the residents of the Crofton Special Community Benefit District of mosquito control services that are being provided by the Maryland Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the Anne Arundel County Government, for 2020.
Due to the impact of Covid 19 the state of Maryland has been under a hiring freeze and the field staff for the mosquito control program was insufficient to conduct regular fogging. However, today we have been advised that the Mosquito Control Section hopes to begin fogging operations in Anne Arundel County very soon.
Between April and October a County-wide surveillance and control of larval mosquitoes will be conducted. Surveillance and control of adult mosquitoes will be conducted beginning soon and will continue until October 6. For further information you may contact State Mosquito Control at https://mda.maryland.gov/plants-pests/Pages/mosquito_control_program_description.aspx or at 410-841-5870.
Spraying for adult mosquitoes will be done only if an MDA employee determines it is necessary. The frequency of ULV spray treatments will be based on the level of mosquito infestation and the resources available. The spraying night for Crofton will be Tuesday. Spraying will be done between 7:00 PM and 2:30 AM. Spraying will not be conducted if it is raining, the winds exceed 12 MPH or the temperature exceeds 89 degrees. Please note that ULV spray treatment of adult tiger mosquitoes is most effective when conducted in conjunction with community clean up efforts to remove standing water containers. Birdbaths and containers under potted plants should be flushed twice a week. Old tires should be properly disposed of and not stored in yards. Roof gutters and down spouts should be kept clean. Dripping outdoor faucets should be repaired. Collections of water in tarps or grill covers should be drained. If stored outside or under decks, items like pails, wading pools, wheelbarrows and such should be turned upside down.
Residents who would like their property to be exempt from adult mosquito control services must notify the MDA in writing, using the Department of Agriculture’s request form. The Request Form is available from the MDA (http://mda.maryland.gov/plants-pests/Documents/NewExemption%202016-1.pdf) and at Crofton Town Hall for Special Community Benefit District residents.
The Crofton Police will begin listing found/recovered property under the Crofton Police tab of this website. If you believe the listed property is yours simply contact Crofton Police. You must provide proof of ownership in order to claim any property.

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!
