Multiple Deferred Maintenance Issues in Woodland Park Reported to NCC Parks Maintenance .
I am getting a lot of complaints from residents .
- We had a tree come down over the creek due to erosion & forestry left the wood just off the basket ball court
There are dozens of similar trees close to falling into the Little Mill Creek due to erosion .
- In addition there is quite a bit of downed wood through out the north side of the park that has yet to be cleaned up .
The grass cutting contractor has failed to trim around the downed wood through out the park .
- The drainage basins down from Brookland & Hillside Ave well as from Centerville / Faulkland RD have totally been neglected .
I realize this is before all of are time but non the less when these drainage basin were installed 50 years ago we were assured by the Highway Department & NCC the drainage basins would be properly maintained .
Unfortunately the drainage basins from Brookland & Hillside Ave well as from Centerville / Faulkland RD have totally been neglected in the past 50 years .
- Both the pedestrian bridges abutments have eroded to a point close to failure .
The abutments need to be shorted up or put quite simply soon there will be no pedestrian bridges over the Little Mill Creek .
I realize this is a process involving DNREC . When can we get the process started ?
When we loose these bridges how many years will it be before we can get another installed ?
Brookland Terrace is a community extremely invested & committed to Wooodland Park we have an annual Park Clean Up pulling debre from the Little Mill Creek , we have residents that daily pick up any trash , since 2009 we have collected trash bags weekly , we mulch our own play ground equipment .
Thank You for your attention in these matters
