Newly Formed Main Street Committee Takes Action, Needs Volunteers

Over the summer, members of the Greater Parkville Community Council kept busy by forming a group to improve the Harford Road business district.

The following was submitted by Greater Parkville Community Council President Ruth Baisden as a letter to the editor:

Parkville’s new Main Street Committee will sponsor its first Harford Road improvement project this Saturday.

In an effort to make our Main Street more attractive and inviting, members of the Parkville Main Street Committee will be weeding overgrown areas along Harford Road.

The project will begin behind and , (at the corner of Taylor Avenue and Harford Road), this Saturday (tomorrow), 9 a.m. and continue north along Harford Road until noon. Community support and participation is needed in order to make a difference.

To volunteer, just show up tomorrow ready to work. If there is a rain storm the project will be cancelled. Let’s show our community’s pride to the thousands of people that will visit the Parkville Towne Fair, on September 18th!

The Parkville Main Street Committee was formed in the Spring of 2011 and consists of Parkville residents, organizations, and business owners.

Its mission is to continue Parkville’s Main Street Revitalization Project and establish a more viable Harford Road Business District by:

  • Promoting the Harford Road Main Street Business District
  • Creating an atmosphere that invites people to visit Main Street
  • Strengthening current and attracting new businesses that are consistent with a walkable small town Main Street theme.

Hope to see you there. For more information visit our booth at the Parkville Fair or call me at 410-668-2580.
