Spotlight on Crofton First

Spotlight on Crofton FirstPromote Smart Growth is more than a slogan for Crofton First.  It’s exactly what this three-year old community organization stands for and does.

Formed in April 2006 in response to threatened Wal-Mart development on undeveloped wetlands along Route 3, Crofton First is faced with a new challenge:  the recently-issued MDE permit for the same property as a mixed-use development.

The future of this site will be discussed at the Crofton Library on March 26 at 7 p.m. during the next Crofton First meeting.  Attorney Macy Nelson will provide an update and answer residents’ questions.

Additionally, Jennifer Bevan-Dangel of 1000 Friends of Maryland will review the Maryland Legislative Session with an emphasis on growth legislation.

As a long-time Crofton resident, I can say unequivocally that the difference between this and other communities is the residents and dedicated volunteers who have worked since Day One to make it a special place to live. 

By taking on this challenge, Crofton First follows in the path of early local residents like Dave Espie who helped create the Special Taxing District and Police Department, Kathryn Callahan who led efforts to plant flowering trees along the Parkway, Marsha Perry who made it her mission to eliminate odors from a nearby treatment plant, Ed Dosek whose efforts led to the acquisition of property for Bell Branch Park, and many others. 

That tradition of community involvement and activism seems to be alive and well in Crofton First.  

Anyone who wants to get involved but cannot attend next Thursday’s meeting should email [email protected]
