From Harford County Councilman Mike Perrone, Jr:
Introducing the Joppa Development and Heritage Corporation
For anyone concerned about the future of the Joppatowne and Joppa communities – please mark the evening of Wednesday, February 17 on your calendars.
A group of motivated and concerned Joppa residents have been meeting lately and decided to form a nonprofit advocacy group for the community: the Joppa Development and Heritage Corporation.
Those of us who launched this idea share two core beliefs – that Joppa has untapped potential in terms of economic development, and that Joppa’s rich colonial history needs to be promoted and celebrated. But it doesn’t have to stop there. Water quality issues, trails and greenways, and boating services like fuel and sewage pumpouts have come up already as items of concern for the community. If you have a concern that you are willing to work to address, please come and join us. The more active members we have, the more we will be able to accomplish.
The initial meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 17 at Joppatowne Christian Church (725 Trimble Road). The snow date for the meeting is Wednesday Feb. 24; same time, same place.
Hope to see you there!
