2022 Year-End Association Report

The Association’s Board Members are actively involved with the following committees.  To learn more, contact office@rrlraia.org.

The committee’s primary goal is to communicate implemented initiatives and activities of the Association to our members through weekly E-News.  The committee also helps identify items of interest, takes photographs, and helps maintain the website.  Future goals involve developing a social media presence, an Association brochure, and similar marketing materials.

Community Plan
The committee is responsible for developing a current community plan for 2021 through 2030. The Community Plan has been through several stages, beginning with a community-wide survey that yielded a high rate of return and significant input.  Based on the survey results, the initial draft was written in 2021 and posted to the Association’s website, allowing community input and revisions.  A virtual meeting was held with the community to discuss the plan. Currently, the Association is waiting for final County approval of the Plan. While in the approval process, the goals and actions in the plan are operative for the relevant committees.

The committee coordinates RRLRAIA-sponsored events, including, but not limited to, Dumpster Day, Shredder Day, Friday Night Lights, Annual Membership Meeting, and offsite Board retreats.  The Events committee works with other Association committees to help plan events that benefit the community.  The Events committee can determine if virtual events, such as speakers or classes, would benefit members.

The committee promotes the goals and objectives outlined in the 2000, 2010, and 2020 Community Plans as they relate to these community areas.

Flooding & Sewer
The committee, working collaboratively with the Baltimore County and State Government, advocates for actions to prevent flooding and the devastating impact of flooding on the community and the environment.

The Sewer committee, in collaboration with the Baltimore County Government, advocates for sewer function improvements through the reduction of stormwater infiltration, the prevention of sewer overflows, and the impact overflows have on the community and the environment. The Sewer committee specifically focuses on the goals and action plan in the 2020 Community Plan. These goals and actions were shared with the community with significant input from the community.

The committee develops the timeline for the annual membership drive, writes membership letters, develops strategies to bring in new members, and coordinates quarterly New Resident Welcome Packet development and distribution.  Membership includes residents and businesses.

Nominating and Governance

The committee also identifies areas of expertise needed on the board, and collects and maintains Conflict of Interest forms from each board member and the Executive Director.

Public Facilities, Enhancements, and Historic Preservation

Zoning and Code Enforcement
The committee monitors, oversees, and coordinates efforts relating to zoning issues (variances, special exceptions, comprehensive zoning, and code enforcement issues) between the owner/developer, the impacted neighbors, and the overall community. In addition, when material modifications are made to residences in the community requiring the Design Review Panel (DRP), the Association solicits neighborhood feedback and acts as the liaison between members and the County’s DRP.
