New Program for county Residents!

Call N’ Ride service is a NEW, ON-DEMAND transit service serving North County.

Anne Arundel County Transit is FARE FREE to all county residents. See flyer images attached for additional information and instructions. Call 410-222-0025 to request service.

 

Roadwork information

There have been no new assignments as of yet however we are reaching out often to check. If there are areas of concern, please let us know or call the number listed below.

  Please know that the grassy areas along the curb lines, once completed are filled with a good topsoil and seed. These areas will be soft for a good period of time and should be free of walking, driving and even cutting of the grass until they have settled in to avoid rutting the areas out. Parking over the curb line will no longer be tolerated and is subject to ticketing, fines and possible costs of repair. It is exciting to see the renewal efforts in action and the curb appeal this presents for our community!

 Please make sure that as the work begins that we all do everything possible to ensure the workers have the areas cleared as needed of all vehicles to ensure that the work moves as quickly as possible. While these roads are being worked on, please be considerate to the areas where you will need to park.

While the work is being completed this is an excellent opportunity to consider a driveway for your home. The best way to get this done is to talk with the project manager on site as they come close to your address. They have in the past provided the work at an extremely lower price while on site than you would normally be able to do on your own. 

I hope that everyone is as excited as we are in getting this information as it greatly improves the water flow and overall appearances of the community.

Those who live on roads that have not seen any improvement should keep calling the Northern District roads for requests!  It helps to keep them hearing from those that are impacted!

410-222-6120

 If you call be sure to write down date, name of person you spoke with and the information they gave you as we are now in constant communication regarding this and there have been issues with the way the department has been handling the calls. we need this to expedite our efforts!!!  Also, while we are trying to do this, please keep in mind that the law states (in short) that repairs are the responsibility of the homeowner however there are some exceptions so be kind while speaking with these people as the old saying goes you get more with sugar…

Roadside Signage

As you drive along the roads today you have undoubtedly seen signs stuck to poles trees and sign poles as well as every corner in grassy areas. regardless of what they say and are for they are illegal and are not supposed to be there. just like many other laws these are not enforced and the people that put them there are often doing in the late hours of the night. The simple truth is that they are trash and look terrible if left to pile up and not be removed. The fact is they are removed at a cost to us as taxpayers. They are never removed by those who put them up.

Fact: The only signage that is allowed by law at present is those which are placed for real estate sales and openings of complexes or condos or new home communities. these are permitted from Friday through Sunday each week and are removed by the companies hired to place them there like clockwork.

The Harundale Community has a no sign policy. We will enforce it within the boundaries of our community.

This not only includes the “we Buy”, “Close Out Sale”, Advertisements and Service signs but will also include ANY signage like “LOST”, For Sale”, “yard Sale” etc. This includes all streets in and through the boundaries known as Harundale – Oakwood Park. There are no exceptions to this policy. As soon as they are seen they will be removed. The only exception to placement of signs as long as they are 2 feet by 3 foot or smaller is within the individual property owned by the residents.

We are committed to the continued efforts of making our community a clean and safe place.

Help Prevent Car Theft and Property Theft

It all starts when you park your car!  LOCK your vehicles!

The most common criminal offense found in all communities today is one of sheer convenience and opportunity… WE can end the crime by using a commonsense approach of out of sight out of mind as well as locking your vehicle when parked.

We have all heard stories or even lived in the day when “you could leave the keys in the ignition or leave your front door open all night”! Well guess what, those days are long gone!!! The police department and HOPCA have spoken in great lengths regarding the details of these crimes and what we found is that by taking personal items out of the view of passer byes and locking the doors, you reduce your risk of theft or damage almost completely!!! there is a national program that is growing that supports the act of locking your car and hiding your items like phones, note pads and GPS devices. DO YOUR PART and become the solution instead of the victim. HIDE LOCK AND TAKE

Community Clean-Up / Ride Through

This is a process that is carried out several times a year where a ride through the community is completed and any violations that are seen at the time of the ride are documented. Vehicles in any violation are tagged at the time and if needed a letter is also sent. homes in violation are sent a letter. If there are questions or concerns, feel free to email us at: [email protected]   

Abandoned Houses

There has been quite a bit of activity on homes in our area where the banks are starting to clean up and sell the properties that have been sitting.  This is great to see however if you see activity in a home and are not sure that they should be there please notify the police so that they can assure proper identity and purpose of being there.

We are asking for help in notifying the Harundale Civic Association to report abandoned properties so that the owners can be contacted and asked to maintain their properties. In the event the owner can’t be contacted, we will make arrangements to secure the property and cut the lawn.

PODS and Storage Containers, Personal storage units are illegal when placed on the street in Anne Arundel County. These units must be placed on the homeowner’s property (not the section between the street and sidewalk) and are limited to a six-week period per county code. These units may only stay on your property for a longer period of time if you have a valid building permit, however six months is the absolute longest allowable period. Our community association will report all violations to the necessary authorities.
