From the Abingdon Community Council:
The Abingdon Community Council (ACC) was created to help better serve the needs of Abingdon residents and has proven to be one of the more active community councils in Harford County. They serve as the voice for the community, representing residents’ views to local authorities and other public bodies operating in the area, and act to further the interests of the Abingdon community at large.
The Council is an all volunteer group appointed by the County Executive. Appointments are made to represent a balanced range of civic, business, institutional and community interests. Council members reside within, or own a business or work within, the established Community Council area boundary.
Serving on the board is a way to serve your community and help make decisions about land use and development, approaches to crime prevention, and building the community. The Council is dedicated to the democratic process, openness in its operations, and is supportive of diverse perspectives. The Council needs the membership to reflect the varied backgrounds and interests of its constituents. We encourage you to get involved and apply for membership…
Goals of Community Councils are as follows:
• Strengthen existing communities and neighborhoods and help achieve a satisfying quality of life for county residents.
• Advise the County Executive on issues of concern and interest in local communities.
• Act as a liaison between members of the community-at-large and the Harford County Administration.
• Increase citizen participation and responsibility in community throughout Harford County.
If you are interested in serving as a Community Council member in your area, please provide the information requested on the attached application form. Please return this form to: Office of the County Executive Chief of Staff/Constituent Services 220 S.
