Asphalt Paving Road Resurfacing on Rosaryville Rd Upper Marlboro MD

Always a pleasure to see my county tax dollars at work again.  A few months ago "The County"  (Prince Georges's County, MD Government) installed new sidewalks, curbs, and driveway aprons in the neighborhood of Hollaway Estates.  Four months later they are resurfacing/paving Rosaryville Rd with new asphalt.  Hats off to "The County" for road improvements and infrastructure upgrades!  Also a shout out to the heavy equipment operators on the steam roller, asphalt finisher paver, Bobcat and dump trucks.  The worked at least two days in hot, humid, 100 degree weather.

Prince George's County Maryland Property Taxes at Work

Over the last few weeks the county has been repairing sidewalks, curbs, and driveway aprons on Rosaryville Rd. in Upper Marlboro, MD (Hollaway Estates).  As a Prince George's county taxpayer I'm glad to see my dollars at work!  The contractors were truly skilled professionals.  They worked diligently and rapidly as they poured and laid the concrete each day.  The Bobcat operator whipped that vehicle around scooping up gravel, dirt and drilling holes like it was nothing to it.  Here are some photos I captured......

New $36M Aquatic & Recreation Complex Opening Soon in Brandywine, MD

The county is building a new multi-use recreational facility in Brandywine, MD which is expected to open by the end of summer.  At a cost of more than $36 million, The Southern Area Aquatic and Recreation Complex (SAARC) is the first Multi-Generational Community Recreational Center in Prince George’s County.

The 75,000 square-foot project includes a huge swimming pool, a gymnasium, a fitness room and flexible programmable space. It is being constructed on property owned by The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) – Brandywine Area Park – located just north of the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Brandywine Road. Future phases of parkland development may include additional site amenities, an expansion of the natatorium, and additional recreation space to accommodate performing arts and ceramic arts.

Personally, I'm looking forward to participating in a Yoga class and water aerobics once this place opens!

Clinton, MD Homes for Sale

This past weekend's home showings took my Buyer and I to Clinton, MD to see several properties.  This 4 bedroom, Split Foyer style home was completely renovated and listed for $299,900.  The interior of the home showed well.  However, my Buyer didn't like the back yard.  She was completely "spooked out".  It had a creek running through the property and this old ugly barn/shed.  The back yard also had weeds and many soft spots.  Experience tells me there are drainage issues in that yard and the potential for snakes to crawl around.  Well, that was definitely a show stopper!  Our search for a home continues...…...
