REC LOT UPGRADES

Update: The board has selected a contractor to repair and expand the basketball court. Work is scheduled to begin Monday, March 29th. Please be mindful of the crew and ensure children's toys or other personal items are not left in the area! Also, please avoid parking directly in front of the lot while the work is ongoing to ensure the crew has access.

The Foxmoor board has approved a project to improve the community recreation lot. The plan is to expand and refurbish the basketball court, as the current court has become significantly cracked and the lines are worn off. 


The plan is to resurface, paint, and expand the court to 54' X 80' (which is somewhat smaller than a standard full-size court) providing space for two basketball hoops, allowing for a full court game or split courts. We think this would give more people the opportunity to play, especially the kids in the neighborhood. If the court is expanded to this size, it will leave approximately 1,600 to 2,000 square feet of grass for other activities. 


The board approved a budget of $20,000 for the project, which will cover the cost of repairing and expanding the court, and purchasing two new basketball hoops. As this is considered a special project, funds from the community's financial reserves will be used. No new or additional fees will be required.

WATERSHED PROTECTION AND RESTORATION PROJECT

The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works has approached the community regarding improvements to Forked Creek to control stormwater runoff and improve water quality within the Magothy River Watershed. The three initial letters received by the HOA,  a map showing a visual overview of where the study will be conducted, and DPW's responses to HOA questions, are available at the links below. While the neighborhood will not incur any costs, there could be an inconvenience to the neighbors on the north side of Norton Ave and the Viking North cul-de-sac. The project is still in the exploratory phases.
