      College Park, MD

The use of the Calvert Road School has the potential to impact the lives of surrounding neighborhoods in both positives and negative ways. Creating a properly balanced plan that optimizes the property and its impact on surrounding neighborhoods is essential to preserve the character of Calvert Hills and Old Town College Park.

      The county and city taxes on my property have increased 230 percent since I purchased my home in 2003, for an average annual increase of 26%. (I am glad to show anyone my original copies of these tax bills.) Clearly, the spending of our local government officials is unsustainable. I am concerned this project will further increase taxes. We need to eliminate numerous voluntary, non-essential initiatives like giving hard-earned taxpayer dollars to businesses in the form of 'grants' to replace their awnings! Ironically, these monies are given to businesses that are not well-managed and, therefore, in trouble. The logic of such an approach and role of government is seriously flawed. Eliminating existing wasteful spending and improving management of personnel and budgets must be the priority of no one in their right mind will ever purchase property in this area.
