After sitting exposed to the elements for a better part of the summer (see post
), the windows on Our Lady of Lourdes Church have been boarded up. Thankfully, after sending emails and placing phone calls to Councilman Curtis Haynes, he stepped up to the plate and reached out to the guardian of the building. Days later new plywood was up and the church is now secure for the fall and winter season. There is still a small upper window that needs to be boarded up, but it is so small that it should not present a big problem.
From Curtis:"We sent an e-mail to Anthony Palumbo, Planning and Development Coordinator for Ellicott Development Corporation. A subsidiary of their corporation recently bought the property. They committed to properly securing the premises in addition to landscaping maintenance and the cleanup of any litter/debris on site in the coming weeks. They moved quickly."
