Lake Louise Meeting Tonight

The Crofton Civic Association annual meeting is tonight at Crofton Elementary School (7:30 p.m.) and the “hot topic” will be the future of Lake Louise.

Once the jewel of Crofton’s curb appeal, Lake Louise has been an eyesore for years. 

Lake LouiseIn the early days of my real estate career, prospective home buyers were always impressed at the lovely entrance into “Old Crofton” – the beautiful pond known as “Lake Louise” and the meticulously maintained lawns.  No more.  Now their first impression of our neighborhood can be summarized in one word, “OLD”. 

Contrast this with their impression as they drive into other nearby communities and even shopping centers where the lawns and beds at the entrance are impeccably maintained, seasonal flowers are in bloom, and water features often include a fountain, lighting and sometimes a walking path and benches… 

There are several proposals for Lake Louise on the table, and you probably already read about them on the Crofton Civic Association website or in the letter mailed to every household.  You’ll learn more about each option if you attend the meeting tonight.

The property value of every homeowner in Crofton will be impacted by any decision regarding the future of Lake Louise.  That’s because the decision of prospective homebuyers to choose our community over another (let alone your home) will be influenced by the “curb appeal” of Crofton’s front yard along Route 3.  A beautifully maintained entrance into the community creates that important “first impression” for the neighborhood.  As you’ve heard before, “you don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression.”

Please keep that in mind as you consider all the options, and don’t “settle” for anything less than a first class landscaping and maintenance package for Crofton’s front yard.   A “natural” look in your front yard wouldn’t appeal to many homebuyers, and it’s not likely to attract many of them past those front gates and into our community either.
