From Jansen Robinson, Chair Edgewood Community Council:
On Monday March 5, 2012 the County Executive (or his designee) will appear at the Joppatowne Community Council to make his case for a Transfer Station on Route 7 in Joppa. This Transfer Station could have a significantly negative impact on the quality of life not only for the community closest to the proposed site, but for both the Edgewood and Joppatowne Community.
The Joppatowne Community supported Edgewood in its’ efforts to divert the sale of the former Gap Warehouse site on Trimble Road (which is currently the home of Kohls eDistribution Center) which could have been used for a Waste Disposal facility. The Joppatowne Community helped us to successfully defeat that effort and now that parcel of land is a jobs producing (positive impact) facility in our community.
I urge you to join me and members of your Edgewood Community Council in a show of support for our neighboring community.
Then on Wednesday March 14 at 7:00 PM you are invited to attend the Edgewood Community Council meeting where the County Executive (or his representative) will appear at the Edgewood Community Council to make his case for the Transfer Station in our community. We are all in this together whether we like it or not. Please pass this message onto your friends and neighbors.
