UNION SQUARE NEWS July/August 2004
LETTER FROM THE ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT Hello Neighbors: Summer is here and the locusts are almost gone. We have begun planting new street trees and had a successful cleanup this month. Here are some photos of the cleanup crew and the six new street trees planted along Lombard Street next to Steuart Hill Elementary. These second grade children will be able to proudly say they helped beautify their school and the neighborhood. And they will be able to enjoy the trees grow with them! We will be planting another 12 trees this month in the neighborhood. Please remember that Union Square is a CHAP district and a National Register Historic District. Any work done on your property needs to respect the historic materials and original style of construction. Vinyl replacement windows are not allowed on the facades of houses in our neighborhood. Paint colors need a CHAP approval permit. The permit is free of charge, but it must be obtained and post- ed or you can be subject to a fine. Call CHAP at 410-396-4866 for information. We will not hold an association meeting in July, instead we will have a picnic in August. Watch your mailbox for a flyer! Our September meeting will have a presentation about getting CHAP and State Tax Credits for a large range of house renovation projects. You can even get them for projects you have already completed, as long as you have before pictures! So snap those photos before you get the permits and start hammering on your summer renovation projects! Best wishes, Greg Grass “General Meeting Summer Break” Next Meeting Wed., 9/1 , 7 pm 1401 Hollins St. Enjoy your summer and we’ll see you for the next meeting in September!
