Good Tips


Pick up after your pet.  Rodents can become a serious problem in communities.  Always place your trash in the cans and keep cans coverd.  


Pet owners should always pick up after your pets.  Rats love animal feces.  Rats and other pests will infiltrate areas where there is food sources.


Park vehicles in the direction of traffic.  Passenger side doors of parked cars MUST be on the side of the sidewalk.


Vehicles must be operational and tags current to be parked on a public road and private property. Vehicles with flat tires may be tagged as an ABANDONED vehicle by the police department and towed.  

Tractor Trailer parking in residential area is illegal.  Fine is $252 for each section.  

Good House Keeping!

Keep grass cut and trimmed.  Please do not blow yard trimming into the road, it's illegal.  


Grass must be kept below 12 inches, however, 1-3 inches is desirable.

Keep trash lids on your trashcans. It prevents attracting pests and trash blowing into the neighborhood.


Snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks and walkways within 24 hours after the end of the snowfall.

Good morning Bryen,


We are 99 percent complete on paving segment one of the Lochearn Phase 2. This would include Lochearn, Laurel, Cedar ,Carol and Arbutus. We plan to start Segment 2 Friday and hope to finish 95 percent of the entire project before the Thanksgiving pending on weather conditions.


BGE paving contractors will be posting no parking signs on the street that in the near future of starting the next segment. Please keep in mind, parking notices will be placed 48 hours in advance as this is Baltimore Counties requirement. A common question we’ve received from the residents is on our paving process. To make the community aware of the paving process, the BGE contracted pavers are following Baltimore County specifications accordingly. We typically restore walkways from joint to joint and pavement within the lane in which the opening was created, adhering to jurisdictional specification. However, if the street is scheduled to be repaved in the near future or was recently repaved, then we will take that into consideration in determining the appropriate remedy, as approved by the jurisdictional authority.


I would be more than happy to provide any updates with the paving process. In the meantime, please do enjoy the upcoming holiday.
