The Picture above is Cecelia Street. There are still Home Owners living here. The water Dept left these signs in front of their homes over a week ago & have yet to return to finish the job at hand.

If you take a drive through the Rolling Mill/Maryland Ave destruction area, you may notice the bright beautiful colors that are painted on the streets. Some are white, some are blue, some are bright yellow, and some are bright green. In the City of Cumberland’s latest attempt to intimidate the “holdouts” to the destruction project, the Mayor and City Council in conjunction with the Cumberland Economic Development Corporation have ordered City Employees to dig up the streets and remove all underground water meters on the properties that have been purchased for or by the City thus far.

Ironically, after the nearly 2-foot snowstorm, not one City employee was instructed to remove one flake of snow from any of the affected properties. However, in the Cumberland Times News dated from Saturday after the snowfall, the City had the unmitigated gall to ask homeowners to remove all remaining snow from their sidewalks. (A Rolling Mill resident eventually took on the task himself). That’s some news, isn’t it?

A bit of advice to the Mayor and Council and members of the CEDC. We, the citizens who are in your destruction plan are 100% NOT intimidated by your arrogant tactics.

The State of Florida has done much to stop the horrific impacts of eminent domain on its citizens. Who knows, maybe Maryland may eventually feel the same way.

Always Paying Attention,

The Pictures you are seeing here is the way that Emily Street has been left. The grass has all been left to mounds of dirt and the road now has holes filled with gravel.
