Upcoming Construction on Parkside Drive

Our neighbors along Parkside may have received notice from DOT about future parking restrictions related to construction, which they've said will start Thursday, May 16. This seems to be the first phase in the Parkside Drive renovation project. The DOT notice states they'll be adding ADA compliant curbs, ramps, sidewalks and some driveways. The repaving does NOT seem to be scheduled yet. AIA President Tim Milli will be contacting City officials for a more comprehensive description of the project and its scope. Once we get more information we will pass it along!

May/June Arcadian Newsletter Includes Draft of Updated Proposed Bylaws – Please Review and Comment

The May/June 2019 edition of The Arcadian newsletter was recently distributed. Please note that this issue includes a proposed first draft of updated bylaws for the Arcadia Improvement Association. Last year, Lisa Frank and Vanessa Russell attended a Community Law Center (CLC) event where they discovered that the Arcadia Improvement Association bylaws were in need of some updates. Since then, Lisa, Roger Tragesar and new AIA president Mike Milli have formed a committee to compile feedback from other board members to update the bylaws. Their goal is to vote for the new bylaws at the AIA general meeting in the fall.

Please take a look at the draft and voice any concerns that you may have by emailing president@arcadia.baltimore.org. In the subject line, please use "AIA Bylaws."
