From John Paff, Chairman of the Bush River Community Council:
In January, Harford County Executive David Craig along with Councilwoman Mary Ann Lisanti announced that they have formed a new Community Council to serve the areas surrounding the Bush River. The Bush River Community Council (BRCC) will serve the communities of Belcamp, Perryman, Holly Woods, Long Bar Harbor, Otter Point and Abingdon (east of 95). An area that many of it’s residents feel is often overlooked within Harford County.
Due to a snow day in February, the BRCC will hold it’s first community meeting on March 21, 2011 from 6:30-8:30pm in the media center at Church Creek Elementary in Belcamp. The main objective of our first meeting will be to have an open discussion on each members vision for the Council. We hope that many of you who live in the Bush River area will join us for this, the most important meeting of the council. As this meeting will develop the footprint and foundation for the future of the council. In addition to this discussion, we will also have the Department of Planing and Zoning to discuss the county master plan, representatives from the Harford County Sheriff’s office to discuss their work in our community and what we can expect from their office at our monthly meetings, as well as, a member of the County Executives office.
The Bush River Community Councils main goal will be to serve as a central command center for information within our community. We will collect and share information with the community, as well as, receive community input on concerns and ideas, then share that information with our county leadership. We will also have members of the council assigned to areas of importance, such as education, transportation, planning & zoning and Parks & Rec. Who will then report back at our monthly council meetings. The BRCC will only be as successful as the members of our community who participate and with that I encourage all of you to attend and participate in our monthly meetings.
The council will meet the 3rd Monday of each month at Church Creek Elementary (4299 Church Creek Rd. Belcamp, MD 21017) from 6:30-8:30pm.
