The City of Greenbelt recently began a new program which enables Greenbelt residents who are not affiliated with the University of Maryland to ride Shuttle-UM buses. Interested residents need to purchase a pass which entitles the holder to ride any Shuttle-UM bus for free. Residents can purchase this pass at the City’s Aquatic & Fitness Center at 101 Centerway or the Youth Center at 99 Centerway. They have to complete a short application and show proof of City residency. Passes cost $10 and are valid through August 31, 2013.
More information on University shuttle bus routes and schedules is available at http://www.transportation.umd.edu/schedules.html. For any other questions about the program, please contact David Moran at 301-474-8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org
All parking permits must be
completely visible, otherwise your vehicle is subject to tow. There has been an instance where a car air freshner was partially blocking it.
We have recently seen an increase of people putting their trash on the ground instead of the dumpsters. All trash must be
placed in the trash containers located throughout our community to avoid birds and rodents from tearing through the bags.
So that we can maintain the appearance of the neighborhood and property values, all exterior changes must go through the Architectural Review process.
A Homeowner wishing to make any change to the exterior of their home or any part of their yard is responsible for completing and submitting an ARC Application Form. Each ARC Application is reviewed by the ARC Committee which is comprised of homeowners who volunteer their time. The Committee has up to 30 days to render a decision, yet they strive to have applications returned within 3-5 business days. As a reminder, it is the sole responsibility of each homeowner to obtain written approval for any changes, prior to commencement, and retain a copy of the written approval in their records.
Delivery of Packages
We have recently been informed by neighbors that packages left at your front door by FedEx, UPS, and the USPS are being stolen. When the perpetrator opens the package and realizes that they do not want the contents they discard of the packages throughout our community. Please be on the lookout for any suspicious activity in our community. If you see a crime in progress please dial 301-474-5454 or 911 to report the incident. For non-emergencies please call the City of Greenbelt’s Police Department at 301-474-7200.
The Greenbelt Police Department has been made aware of the situation and will increase patrols in our neighborhood.
Follow the guidelines below to protect yourself:
· When you order something online always select “Signature Required”
· Do not order something when you know you won’t be in town because the package will sit on your front porch for an extended period alerting people that no one is home.
· Most couriers have a service you can sign up for to deliver updates regarding your package. Visit their websites for more information.
The on-site office will not accept any packages for residents.
Please be very vigilant and immediately report any suspicious activity even though you may think it may be nothing to the Greenbelt Police Department at 301-474-5454. If you are also interested in joining our safety committee please contact our on-site office by calling 301-345-1777.
