parcel F swale
After 2½ years of working with the county on this, they have at last come back with a proposed design plan for retrofitting the existing swale. Here are the details:

Rt 7 Shared Use Path Project

The county has informed us that they will begin surveying early next year for a 10′ asphalt path alongside westbound Rt 7 from Lakeland Drive to Campus Drive.

cardinal glen’s first builder

the first developer in cardinal glen was national birchwood homes: the model homes were the first 4 houses on cgc facing the bahai church; those models can be seen on both sides of down cgc almost to coloma ct, comprising most of section 1, cardinal glen section & common ground map lots 34-57.

the county originally wanted our street to go thru to sugarland run…that would certainly have been better for traffic, but not for cardinal glen as a great neighborhood;-)

luckily for us, the property behind us was not for sale…it was a farm occupied by renters who were very nice people who had moved out to the country to escape the big city, and whose son was the subject of a police pursuit, complete with helicopter, after he knocked off a 7-11 in fairfax & ran home to momma memorial day w/e 1984…so the builder petitioned to county to allow a circle, and the rest is history;-)

there is also a story that building was suspended when graves were found…and a resident of red wing ct says he saw a bright glow over the stream one night, and has pictures to prove it…somewhere;-)
