I am not often motivated to respond to an article, but the one about the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company being turned down to improve their ability to serve the community really stuck in my craw!
As someone who has enjoyed this world's resources and the need to protect our land and water, I appreciate the efforts of the Magothy River Association. I have been a Severna Park resident since 1991. My wife has lived here since the mid ‘70s. I have watched the community grow so much since then. It seems that there is always another subdivision or group of homes everywhere you turn here. I'm no NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard), but if I need emergency services, I'm not going to call the Magothy River Association! How is it we can find a way to squeeze more homes in Severna Park (homes or their occupants that may eventually require emergency services) but not give the members of our community that don turnout gear and/or our EMT's the leeway to serve us?
