Hello, Sgt. Fink of your Towson Precinct Community Outreach Team with once again a reminder for All in Our Towson Communities to secure our property then securing our sheds, garages and vehicles to protect our personal property.  Within the past week our Officers have taken several reports for Thefts from Autos and an Auto Theft from the Communities in the Charles St to Falls Rd area south of Bellona Ave while other Officers have taken reports of Burglaries of Sheds in neighborhoods off the lower section of York Rd.  With both these Crimes vehicles and sheds were not locked, property of value was left in plain sight, within easy access once the person/s responsible opened the vehicle or shed door.  Although these crimes were in two specific areas of Towson Precinct We all know from times past they can happen in any community of Towson thus I’m alerting all to get the word out to your family, friends and neighbors to always properly secure your valuables, your property.  Our Detectives are actively investigating these incidents in attempt to identify persons responsible and recovery property. The Detectives are also identifying the majority of these crimes as ones of opportunity meaning those responsible are  finding plenty of vehicles, sheds, garages unlocked with items of value within easy access. It doesn’t take those responsible long at all to open an unlocked door and take what they want.  With the Spring and Summer months upon Us Bicycles, Lawn Equipment, outdoor items are popular things to take because they can be turned to quick cash so please put everything away when done with them then lock up tight the storage location on your property. Taking the proper steps to secure what belongs to you reduces your chances of being a victim of those going through our neighborhoods.  Any time You see someone You know doesn’t belong in your neighborhood, entering your property or property of your neighbors, trying car doors or otherwise acting in a Suspicious Manner Call Us! Call 9-1-1 so our Officers can respond and investigate.

 

Thank You, Sgt. Stephen Fink, 2815  PC06 COT

The position of some of the lights at Dumbarton Middle School's parking lot have been shining toward residents' homes, and we received word today from BCPS and Councilman David Marks that the lights have been adjusted so that they will not shine toward residents' homes.

If you missed the RFCA meeting at which we learned more about the next phase of BGE's pipeline project, here is video of the presentation.

For those of you who want to learn more about TU's plans for the fields near Stanmore, here is a video of their presentation at the RFCA meeting earlier this week. (BGE also spoke about the pipeline project, and we will post that video later.)

Representatives from BGE's Operation Pipeline will be at the next board meeting (7PM on May 9 at Dumbarton Middle) to provide updates to the next stage of the process. See map below.

And, the 2018 State Budget includes $3 million for new athletic fields at Towson University.  One field located adjacent to Rodgers Forge homes will be converted from natural grass to synthetic turf.  The field situated between the softball fields and tennis courts will be used for field hockey and other athletics after conversion. Representatives from Towson University will also attend the May 9 meeting to share plans and entertain questions regarding this project.

Again, please note the meeting will be held at DUMBARTON MIDDLE SCHOOL at 7pm on May 9. All RF residents are welcome to attend.

We've heard from people with concerns about the fact that the Rodgers Forge newsletters are delivered in plastic bags, which generally end up in landfills. So the April/May 2018 newsletter, which is in the process of being delivered, will be bag free. 
 
If this ends up being a problem for some reason, we will re-think it. We are also exploring fewer paper newsletters and relying more on the website and emails. 
 
PS: Don't forget to recycle your newsletter after reading!
