For Parkville residents concerned about crime in the neighborhood, a Thursday night meeting will provide an opportunity to chat with one of the men in charge.
Capt. Gordon Skinner, commander of Parkville's Baltimore County Police Department precinct, will be speaking to the Greater Parkville Community Council about crime trends in the area and taking questions and concerns from those who attend.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Jan. 10 and is held at the Parkville Senior Center, 8601 Harford Road.
"If you have any crime related or traffic concerns please plan to attend this meeting," wrote Ruth Baisden, Greater Parkville Community Council president, in a post on Facebook.
Baisden wrote that other items on the agenda include an update on the Harford Road/Beltway ramp reconfiguration project via the State Highways Administration and discussion of future projects to affect the Harford Road "Main Street" and Parkville Park.
"Residents and business owners in the Parkville, Carney, and Cub Hill area are welcome to attend GPCC meetings to ask questions, raise issues, and show support for our community," Baisden wrote. "Together we can make a difference in our community and keep it a great place to live, shop, and raise a family."
