On 09/28/2012, the BOCC has approved a plan to convert the Monrovia area from its present rural environment into an Urban area like Urbana. The project is called the Lansdale project. You may not be aware of the dramatic changes that are coming, but as a 25 year resident of the area the changes will change the area adversely and permenantly. However, there is one more opportunity to present your opinion to the BOCC on December 20, 2012 at 7:00pm
at Winchester Hall. The reason for the meeting is to correct an administrative mistake the BOCC made in the written convenants that will change the area forever. Here are some of the highlights of the changes that are coming to our area.

-1700 new homes are going to be built on the farm next to the telephone tower on the hill. This will add 1,000 cars to our roads. RTE 75 is going to be expanded into a 4 lane hwy from Rte 355 to the "kiss and Park" at iterstate 70. This construction will last for the next 15 years. Where is all the water going to come from that feed our wells.
The abundance of wildlife in our area will be driven out by all of the new cars and development.
Although, the water is going to be provided from the big water tanks around our area where does the wtaer come from to fill those tanks. The BOCC could care less about the quality of life in our area. The sewage will be process and dumped into the creek in old town Monrovia. Trailers will be added to all the schools in our area to accomodate the increased student population. Our taxes will go up to help pay for all of the infrastructure requires to support this development. The light and noise pollution will change our quiet nights into a noisy urban area. Please go to the meeting
and speak up for our rights. On DECEMBER 20, 2012 AT 7:00PM AT WINCHESTER hALL WILL BE A MEETING TO CORRECT AN ADMINISTRATIVE ERROR THE BOCC MADE BEFORE THEY CAN START THIS PROJECT. THIS WILL BE YOUR ONLY CHANCE TO VOICE YOUR OPINION BEFORE THEY RUIN MONROVIA.

I want everyone to know that the RALE group (residents against lansdale expansion) has a facebook page and a petition going on the petition site.org ("downzone lansdale") please feel free to join our pages and support our community. This development is going to destroy our community and our way of life.

Frederick Counties government has approved an 1,100 all age residential development for Monrovia Md. Which is currently a rural town. Now they want to approve an additional 1,510 homes right next door with 180,000 sq. ft. of commercial space. www.facebook.com/RALE.monrovia has become a great way to help residents get information about developments that are in phases or being proposed. This is something the county should be responsible for. But unfortunately, I have found that the county officials really don't want us in the know or involved. Almost everyone I know or have come to know, knew nothing of these projects. And more importantly, I have yet to find anyone who is for either of these projects. Why isn't President Blaine Young and the other commissioners listening to the people they represent?
