Welcome! This email is coming to you because you subscribed previously to the Mayor's newsletter. I encourage you to share the information with family and friends who live in the City of Annapolis. It'll be an update of what is happening in the City and some of the initiatives the City is working on. Here's what's been happening the last couple of weeks:
- The City Dock Action Team has an upcoming meeting: May 6 at 6:30 p.m. at Pip Moyer Recreation Center. The City Dock Action Team and Working Groups have been researching implementation strategies for the Urban Land Institute TAP study. We encourage residents of all wards to be a part of this meeting.
- I want to thank the Drum and Bugle Corps for working with the City to put on the Martin Luther King Jr. parade on April 13.
- The Wounded Warriors had their annual bike ride through Annapolis on April 17. This year we got to ride through the Naval Academy. The ride is a great way to raise awareness for the sacrifices military personnel make in order to serve our country. It was an honor to be invited and to ride with them.
- Speaking of which, coming up May 11, there will be another bike ride coming through the City. This one is to support the National Law Enforcement Memorial. We’ll be meeting and greeting those riders around 4 p.m. on the 11th near Stan and Joes on West Street. Please come out to cheer them on.
- With the greening of the trees, we are thinking about the environment.
- Members of my staff joined Annapolis Green, the Severn River Association, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Back Creek Conservancy and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County to do a headwaters cleanup of Back Creek on April 20.
- A couple days later, we held a press event with Sen. Cardin, Congressman Sarbanes and County Executive Pittman to reaffirm our commitment to the environment for Earth Day.
- This past weekend, 300-plus volunteers from around the City worked on 60 projects for the 28th annual GreenScape. I got to participate in a project in my own neighborhood at the park on Lafayette in Murray Hill. Thank you to everyone who is working to keep our City beautiful!
- Speaking of environmental action. You’ve got information in the budget on some of my reorganization priorities. I am hopeful that we can work together on this. We all want to get to the same place.
- Last thing: May 4 is International Firefighter’s Day. Make sure on Saturday you hug a firefighter.
