The has released its spring newsletter with information about local events and programs. The community organization is also encouraging residents to take an online survey found here.
The full newsletter can be found in the media gallery or by clicking on this link. It includes the following statement from , PHIA president:
The PHIA has held several worthwhile meetings in the last few months. In January, representatives from Franklin Square Hospital provided information regarding the role of Franklin Square in the community and the many services the hospital offers.
In February, a representative of the Baltimore County Fire Department provided information regarding emergency preparedness, and a representative of the Baltimore County Bureau of Highways explained Baltimore County’s snow removal process. In March, the PHIA hosted a forum to provide Perry Hall residents an opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues with our area’s representatives on the Baltimore County Council, Councilman David Marks and Councilwoman Cathy Bevins.
We are also looking forward to a few more informative meetings before we adjourn for the summer. On April 12th, Donnell Zeigler from the Baltimore County Office of Planning will explain the various zoning proposals that were submitted in connection with Comprehensive Zoning Map Process (CZMP) that occurs every four years in Baltimore County. The PHIA will be weighing in on these proposals, but this meeting provides an opportunity for residents to understand the process.
On Wednesday, May 9th, State Senators and Delegates who represent the Perry Hall area will provide an overview of the 2012 legislative session. We encourage you to attend to hear from our State representatives and ask them questions.
We are also looking forward to our annual family-oriented Spring event. The PHIA and Gunpowder Lodge are co-hosting a “Bunny Breakfast” at Gunpowder Lodge from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on March 31st. The event is free for PHIA members and new members who join at the event. To become a member, you must reside within the traditional boundaries of Perry Hall; Route 40 to the east, the main power lines to the west, Big Gunpowder Falls to the north and White Marsh Run on the south. Police officers, firefighters and teachers who work in the Perry Hall area are also invited to attend. The event includes a full breakfast buffet, periodic egg hunts, activities for the kids, and a visit from the Easter Bunny. Additional details are provided in the newsletter. We look forward to seeing you there!
Consistent with its long-standing history of advocating on behalf of the community, the PHIA has recently taken an active role in many important issues, including development proposals, the CZMP process, reviewing options for the best use of property adjacent to the Perry Hall Library, advocating for a dog park in Perry Hall,
and much more.
