On The Agenda: August 2021 By President Karen M. Coakley

Updated: Aug 31


National Police Night Out is Tuesday August 3rd. In the past we have had a picnic along with a variety of exhibits from local community organizations, along with information from the Police Department on Crime Prevention. We are taking a different approach this year because of concerns of COVID. We are sponsoring a Poster Decorating Contest for Beltsville Children. Guidelines create a poster showing something that you think a “GOOD” Police Officer would do to help you. You can hang your poster on your front door or in your yard. Prizes will be awarded to 1 child in each of the following age groups: 5 years and younger; 6-8, 9-11, 12-14 and 15-18. The winners will be announced at our Virtual Police National Night out on Tuesday August 3rd. The winner’s posters will be shared on the Beltsville News Facebook page and website plus Nextdoor.com. Each child will receive a prize too. For more information call 301-741-7672 or email karenmcoakley@gmail.com. Please join us for a Virtual Police National Night Out Event

Update on the presentation from Right Tree, Right Place presentation at our May Citizen’s Association meeting.

During the preliminary stages of implementing the Right Tree, Right Place program in Beltsville. The next step of our program's administration will be to begin conducting our field work to generate work orders for tree removals, pruning’s, and stump grindings. Given the large geographic extent of Beltsville, our program will need to do the area in an iterative phased approach to service the entire region over a few years. The Right Tree, Right Place program will begin with this summer in the following communities: Caverly Hills, Beltsville Heights, Forest Park, West View, Beltsville Estates and Birmingham Estates/Terrace. These are the subdivisions of Beltsville with the highest densities of Bradford Pears that need to be immediately addressed. Please let me know if you have any feedback.
