My #1 Request for the New Crofton Civic Association Board of Directors

Crofton's Front Gate area on MD Rt. 3Crofton’s own political process kicked into action this week. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, the election is over.  Nothing has changed – the incumbents won in an uncontested election.  Only the Presidential race was contested, and Steve Grimaud was re-elected to this post.

I just have one request of our “new” Board of Directors.  Please restore Crofton’s curb appeal.  Crofton real estate property values depend on visitors’ first impression! 

Our president for the past 6 years was quoted in the Crofton Crier saying about Lake Louise that “a beautification project could be expensive, as much as $50,000 for an engineering study alone.”  If the Crofton budget had included $5,000 towards this engineering study for just 10 of the 11 years that Mr. Grimaud has served on the Board of Directors, we would have the funds for it now.  I honestly don’t think we can afford to wait another 10 years – it needs help now. 

Several weeks ago, as I drove to College Park for an appointment, I exited the Beltway at Rt. 201 (Greenbelt) and found myself waiting at a red light, surrounded by beautifully manicured grass and freshly mulched beds filled with daffodil blooms.  My thought:  it’s a sad day when a Crofton resident thinks a Prince George’s County median strip looks better than my community’s front yard.  

Returning Crofton’s once-beautiful front yard to magnificence is my #1 request for the new Crofton Board of Director’s.  What’s yours?
