Here’s the latest news… Charter Board Continues Its Outreach
As of Sept. 1, members of the Charter Board appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to write a proposed new constitution for Frederick County had given more than 20 presentations on their work to organizations throughout the community.
These public outreach sessions have generated strong audience participation from which many very good ideas, comments and conversations have resulted. In September, the board held a forum featuring two experienced Maryland County Executives, Ken Ulman of Howard County and David Craig of Harford County. Additional public meetings are planned to include representatives from other counties.
Rocky Mackintosh is a member of the board and like the other members, is available to give presentations on the process to groups of friends and neighbors, civic clubs and other organizations. For further information contact Frederick County’s Legislative Coordinator Ragen Cherney at 301-600-1049 or email him at RCherney@FrederickCountyMD.gov.
Good News for the Golden Mile
MacRo continues to help Frederick Alliance for Youth (FAY) open a community center that will provide much-needed support, encouragement and positive diversions for young people and families who live in the Hillcrest and Waverly areas. Plans are being finalized for FAY to purchase a 2.42 site MacRo owns off of Hillcrest Drive. By August of 2012, the organization hopes to open the proposed 44,000 square foot facility that will house the Frederick Classical Charter School, and which will provide additional space for neighborhood before- and after-school activities.
