Meetings

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday March 14th at 7:30 PM in the Pump House, 401 S. Horners Lane.

IMPORTANT: ERCA Elections

According to our by-laws, we are due for a Board election this spring. Board members serve two years, as amended in our by-laws last year. We need three to five volunteers who are not Board members to locate and present to the membership a slate of candidates. It can be the current members of the Board (all are willing to continue to serve), or the Nominating Committee can find other voting members who would like to serve on the Board. A voting member is one whose dues are current (or they are willing to make them current before the election). We can also discuss expanding the Board if there are ideas for new leadership roles and people who would like to fill them. Please let me know if you can serve on the nominations committee. You are also welcome to submit your name as a candidate, and I'll gladly pass it along to the nominations committee as soon as it's formed.

This is in response to why the lights under the Viers Mil Road overpass on South Stonestreet Avenue haven't been turned on yet

I wanted to follow up with your association regarding the lights on S. Stonestreet Ave under Veirs Mill Road.  I reached out to the City’s Traffic and Transportation Division, and Andrew Luetkemeier provided the below response.


Chief Rappoport,

Step one in order to get those lights on, is to have our streetlight contractor install a meter pedestal directly east of the last abutment.  Then Pepco will install a meter, and run wire from a nearby streetlight handbox (less than 10 feet away) to the meter location.  I’ve recently been pressing my streetlight contractor to perform the work to get the pedestal installed since that has been dragged out for a variety of reasons.  They have indicated that it should be installed next week barring any unforeseen circumstances. 

Pepco has been another difficulty.  I have recently been successful (where I previously wasn’t) in coordinating their work.  I believe they should be able to make the connection soon after the pedestal is installed. 

I’m hopeful that the lights will be operational within about a month. 

Thanks,
Andrew

ERCA Neighborhood Planning Meeting

Saturday, February 18, 9:30-11:30 a.m. at the Pump House--Staff from the City planning department will conduct a workshop on housing and transition zones. What kinds of non-traditional homes would be great additions to East Rockville? What do they look like? What kinds of architecture (residential and commercial) can be found in transition zones? The interior of the neighborhood, as well as the periphery/Stonestreet, will be addressed. Please let me know if you are planning to attend so that we know how many sets of materials to make and whether or not an additional staff member is necessary. This is an opportunity for us to learn together so that we can make informed, collaborative, decisions about our neighborhood
