Shop With A Cop – College Park PD Treats Family to Day of Shopping at Walmart on Old National Highway


Thanks Historic College Park Neighborhood Association for the great donation today, and in years past – helping to bring joy to local families in celebration of CPPD’s “Shop With A Cop” program.  Members of the College Park Police Department accompanied the family to Walmart on Old National Highway just after 11:30am Tuesday, December 22, 2015.  CPPD transported the family, pushed baskets, helped make selections and paid the bill upon the end of the shopping day.


Thanks Chief Keith Meadows and staff!!!

Comprehensive Plan – 2nd Public Meeting


A second chance to update the Visual Preference Survey that we conducted at the meeting on November 10th.  We put it into Survey Monkey in hopes getting some additional responses.  I hate to bother you again, but could you send it out to your membership?  We can take responses until noon next Monday, December 14th, then we will have to close it in order to add any new responses to the results from the original meeting, and get the final results ready for presentation at the Community Design Workshop.  Here is the link:

While you’re at it, you can go ahead and send the link to the Community Survey!  I just received it from my colleague who was working on putting it into online format.  Here is the link:

Thanks again for all of your help!
