    Looking up the hill. The dark part of the path is black top, the rest is packed crushed stone.

    This is a night and day difference. Is it open to public right now? I'd like to check it out. It would be nice to even get my kayak.

    Here's the barn

    Here's the tree that almost smashed the barn flat

    Here's the first floor, it's a mess. Neighborhood kids trashed it.

    P1010260.jpg

    And here's the second story

    And here's the roof. It's in great shape.

    I'm wondering if those round holes are from woodpeckers or from knots drying out and falling out or some kind of gunshot.

    Those are major upgrades. Once again, the county is doing it right. A special thank you to all who had a hand in facilitating the improvements.

    The park isn't open yet because they're finishing the parking lot and generally cleaning up. I've had no problem parking outside the gate and walking in to look around.

    Here's the pervious parking lot sandwich.

    There's a layer of sand and then geotextile fabric

    Attachment 22913

    Then a layer of compacted coarse rock and a layer of compacted small/medium rock

    Attachment 22914 Attachment 22915

    And then the black plastic honeycomb geoforms and then the geoforms are filled and topped with dirt

    Attachment 22916

    There's a lot of technology underneath that dirt layer.

    And thankfully the portapottie enclosures on the far side of the parking lot.

    There's a pallet of concrete parking curbs in this photo so they're close to being done.

    Hello all, thank you emails for Homeport would really help. The county put far more into Homeport than I ever dreamed they would. Email addresses below.

    County Executive Steve Schuh is enthusiastically committed to better public water access and put money for Homeport in his budget. Although Homeport is in District 6, the whole Council voted on the budget for it. The Rec & Parks and DPW team worked really hard on Homeport.

    So if you would please send emails telling the people who worked on Homeport how you're going to use it, how you're going to take your wife or your kids or your dad out on the water, about the fishing on the South River, how the new path is going to make it so much easier to get to the water - it's your life on the water, please thank those who made it easier to get there. Pictures are always appreciated, both before and after. Send a pic of your yak, they don't know how heavy a fishing yak is.

    Emails below, and please include your first and last name and snail mail address so they know you're a real person.

    Thanks

    County Executive Steve Schuh: exschu00@aacounty.org

    Councilman Pete Smith (District 1): peter.smith@aacounty.org
    please cc Linda Harris, his assistant: linda.harris@aacounty.org
    Councilman John Grasso (District 2): john.grasso@aacounty.org
    Councilman Derek Fink (District 3): dfink@aacounty.org
    Councilman Andrew Pruski (District 4): andrew.pruski@aacounty.org
    Councilman Michael Peroutka (District 5): michael.peroutka@aacounty.org
    Councilman Chris Trumbauer (District 6): ctrumbauer@aacounty.org
    Councilman Jerry Walker (District 7): jerry.walker@aacounty.org

    Rick Anthony Director of Recreation & Parks: rpanth49@aacounty.org
    Mike Lofton, Chair, Water Access Commission: MSL49@aol.com
    Ken Alban, Recreation & Parks: rpalba00@aacounty.org
    Masoud Ghatineh, Public Works: pwghat27@aacounty.org

    If you really want to dig into the weeds, here's how to find council districts and your county councilman:

    Here's a map of the County Council districts:http://www.aacounty.org/boards-and-c...anic%20Map.pdf - it's hard to read, look at the colors and the "District X" labels, not the big numerals

    Here's how to find out which Councilman represents you: http://www.aacounty.org/departments/...ber/index.html
