RCA October Meeting- District 18 State Delegation + Montrose East Project Manager

After a restful summer break, the RCA hits the ground running with our October general meeting featuring our own District 18 delegation: Senator Rich Madaleno, and Representatives Jeff Waldstreicher, Al Carr, and Ana Sol Gutierrez. This is a pretty big deal, getting all of them here at once ready to address our concerns. Let’s pack the house and show them our neighborhood matters.

We will be discussing Montrose Parkway East, the Garrett Park Road bridge, and a new MARC station and pedestrian crossing at Wyaconda Road in addition to your other state level concerns.

Also, Jon Hutchings, the project manager for the Montrose Parkway East project will be on hand to give a brief overview of the planned roadway and will answer any questions.

Please join us Thursday, October 5th, 8pm at the Veirs Mill Park community center located near the corner of Garrett Park Rd and Beach Drive.


Boiling Brook Parkway Adopt-a-Road Cleanup

Dear Neighbors,

Please come out on Saturday, September 23, 2017, at 9:00AM, to help with the Adopt-A-Road cleanup of Boiling Brook Parkway. Clean up of this area is sponsored by the Randolph Civic Foundation. We will meet at Randolph Hills Shopping Center, in the parking lot near Goodwill. Bags and gloves will be provided.

Thank you for your assistance,

Randolph Civic Foundation


Community Yard Sale Update – Volunteers Needed

Due to a lack of volunteers, we regretfully announce that we must put the Community Yard Sale on hiatus and have canceled this Fall’s yard sale.

Our community has held a yard sale at Loehmann’s Plaza twice a year for decades. In recent years, the Boy Scouts ran the event, and we are appreciative of their efforts. Over time, we have seen declining participation, particularly from neighborhood residents. In addition, the rise of EBay, CraigsList and Nextdoor, have provided alternative means for selling household goods. Currently, we do not have volunteers available to run the Yard Sale. If you are interested in helping us continue this event, please contact us at Info@randolphcivic.org. Duties include putting up and taking down the banners, advertising the event on craigslist, setting up flag streamers/cones, and collecting booth fees.

If new volunteers are not found, we will put the event on hiatus until we can find someone. It is possible that we could reduce to once a year if needed.

Another possibility is to replace the Loehmann’s event with a neighborhood Yard Sale Day. With this kind of event, we would pick a day to advertise a community-wide yard sale, and residents would just setup wares in their front yards. Signage would be available to direct people to participating homes. This kind of event would require far less volunteer effort. If you would like us to pursue this option, please come to the October Meeting- we will discuss after the District 18 delegation portion.
