You can afford a dedicated, fully insured, lawn care professional. We are accepting 10 new seasonal clients for 2013. Give us a call for a free estimate. ◆ Owned & Operated by a Local Resident ◆


The Spring 2013 Lake Linganore Community Yard Sale was a great success! Hopefully everyone enjoyed it and benefited by selling those unwanted items collecting dust in your garage, closets and elsewhere. We had families and people participating in nearly every village. In the Coldstream pool parking lot, we had nearly 40 sales that drew lots and lots of buyers. To everyone who contributed again this year and helped us fill the Goodwill truck-thank you! This yard sale keeps getting bigger and bigger, as well as more and more successful. To keep it going, a multi-village committee will need to come together to plan and execute these in the future as it is simply too much for one person to do anymore. If you're interested and willing to help, please contact Victor at:

meadowsvillage@gmail.com Thank you and we look forward to hearing from local yard salers who can help keep this tradition alive next year!

  It was one fine day, in the heat of the sun, That I took my canoe on the lake for some fun. I paddled the waters, so deep and so cool, ‘Til I came to a bank and a small quiet pool. I saw on the surface a fish, barely wet— A small sunfish trapped on a reed and weed net. Unable to swim underwater for breath, It seemed, left alone, that the fish would meet death. It’s thin, shiny tail was torn by a beak, And the poor ravaged sunfish was panicked and weak. It looked like a bird, having captured the fish, Had dropped her somehow and had lost his main dish. I reached down so gently, with heart full of sorrow, And took from the lake the small sunfish to borrow. I needed a place for my new charge to heal, So I fixed up a tank and I made it look real. I covered the bottom with lots of small stones, And added some plants to make it like home. A log to hide under, and fresh filtered water— The fish would be glad it was I who had caught her. I placed her inside and she swam all around, She swam through the bubbles and swam near the ground. Both lacy and pretty—for sure not a him— I called her Priscilla, the dainty and prim. I kept her a winter, I kept her ‘til spring, Until, once again, her tail was a whole thing. Then one summer day, in the cool of the morn, I carried my fish back to where she’d been born. Her bucket I sadly put down on the sand. I looked at my fish for the last time on land. “But,” sighing, I said, “You’re no longer my fish. Good-bye dear Priscilla—for sure you’ll be missed.” I gently released her, and swishing her tail, Priscilla swam out of her portable pail. She swam over sand and she swam through the shallows, She swam through the light and she swam into shadows. And when my pet sunfish was gone from my view I smiled about what I’d been able to do: I’d rescued a sunfish from her woeful plight— And now saw her swimming off, silver and bright. laketalk August-2013

Lake Linganore Fall Festival: October 19th

We are in the planning stages for our Fall Festival to be held at the events tent on Saturday October 19th from 2-5pm. We could really use some volunteers to help make this a success. We are planning a silent auction, old fashioned games, upcycled crafts, and fall family fun for everyone. We are looking for individuals, groups or businesses that would like to sponsor an activity or booth at the Fall Festival. We also need volunteers to help with planning activities, set up/clean up, run activities/booths/ games, design flyers/signs/ads, and help plan a potential cake walk or fall themed bake-off. If you are interested in helping out with any of these roles or you would like to help out in some other fashion with this event, please contact us at FriendsofLakeLinganore@gmail.com and let us know how you would like to help. If you have an idea, but you don’t see it listed, please let us know! We are always grateful for volunteers!

Coming Soon…The Rain Garden Trail

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all of this talk and information about using native plants and rain gardens in your own yard? You may wonder how to choose which plants and materials are right for your taste, your budget, and your yard. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get a feel for your options and preferences by just taking a walk through a native plant and rain garden right here in our community? Friends of the Lake is planning to pursue an ambitious collaboration with the LLA that would resolve a major stormwater management issue while providing our community with a lasting, functional, attractive, and educational amenity: the Rain Garden Trail. For many years, the sloped area behind the Coldstream Pool playground and basketball court has provided a path for residents to access the Coldstream recreational areas, but the area tends to wash out into the streets and yards of the homes at the base of the slope during precipitation

events. The LLA, in cooperation with Friends of the Lake and the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), has assessed the site and determined that a rain garden/bioretention area installed in this area would minimize the negative effects of stormwater runoff by creating a filtering eco-system filled with native plants. The Rain Garden Trail will educate residents of all ages about the problems that stormwater runoff creates, while giving people a beautiful solution. Ideally, the Rain Garden Trail would also be a functioning ecosystem that could demonstrate the green infrastructure benefits for the entire community of Lake Linganore. This project could lead the way to creating a network of smaller rain gardens in backyards throughout the Lake Linganore community, significantly reducing our community’s negative impact on the health of the lake. Rain gardens can capture hundreds of gallons of rainwater from the rooftops and parking lots above the garden and filter out up to 90 percent of pollutants while allowing the water to drain deep enough into the soil to help recharge groundwater supplies. Rain Gardens are part of an overall solution to stormwater pollution, and when installed in yards throughout our community, can significantly reduce the impact of our residential runoff on the health of our lakes. This project is expected to begin in the Fall of 2013. We are obtaining proposals from companies specializing in rain garden design and installation along with sustainable landscape design using native plants. We are also planning to apply for a Chesapeake Bay Trust mini-grant and explore other funding options to help offset some of the landscaping costs. The Frederick Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources has also generously offered to do an onsite training for all volunteers on how to design and install a rain garden in your own yard. The success of this project depends on the willingness of the community to reach out and pitch in. So far, we could really use the following: • Businesses, individuals or groups that are interested in sponsoring a 4 foot section of the trail to fund the purchase of native plants and educational signage • Individuals with knowledge or experience in grant writing who can help research and apply for available grants

laketalk August-2013

• Individuals, Families, or Community Groups who can volunteer to plant native plants in one or more sections of the rain garden • Individuals to organize and coordinate volunteers for planting days • Individuals to design the educational/sponsorship signage for the trail • Individuals willing to collaborate with a Juliette Girl Scout on her gold award project to design community outreach events or activities associated with the trail. • Recommendations from residents who have used natives in their own yards – what worked well? What didn’t thrive? What plants did animals like deer and bunnies leave alone (and which natives did they want to eat/destroy)? Any other tips? • Individual(s) willing to take on a project management role. If you are interested in volunteering for the Rain Garden Trail project, please contact FriendsofLakeLinganore@ gmail.com to let us know how you would like to help. If you have an idea, but you don’t see it on the list, please let us know! We are always grateful for volunteers! You don’t need to have any specific background or experience – just a willingness to help out in your community!

WATER QUALITY UPDATE by Neal Spungen

The Water Quality Committee has been working with Hood College to identify causes of algae in Lake Linganore. On June 5th, Dr. Drew Ferrier and two others from the Hood College Center for Watershed Studies did extensive testing of the lake. Using advanced diagnostic tools, they checked for many different factors that could lead to the presence of algae. They sampled the water column from surface to bottom to determine the vertical distribution of temperature, dissolved oxygen, and light intensity. Surface and bottom samples were also collected for nutrient analysis. All samples were collected in 30 feet of water about 300 yards above the dam. We are in the process of analyzing the results and will be providing additional information soon. Our volunteers have 18

Summer Festival Fun! Many Thanks to Our Teens!

This year the Events Committee called upon local teens to assist with the kids activities at the Summer Festival. The response was overwhelming! Lake Linganore's Teen Volunteers were vital to providing fun activity booths this year. Without our Teen Volunteers we would not have been able to expand the scope of the Summer Festival and accomplish as much as we have. We greatly appreciate the time that our Teen Volunteers have donated and hope that our community recognizes how many great kids live right here in Linganore. Our Linganore Teens ROCK! Please enjoy these photos taken by Sara Howell and Summer Myers. These teen volunteers did a fantstic job capturing the Summer Festival in all its glory!

Independence Day In the Meadows! Another Great Old Fashioned Fourth!

The Meadows hosts an Old Fashioned Fourth every year in McFadden Park on the Fourth of July. This year the rain held out long enough for the whole village to enjoy the party! This family oriented event featured a bike parade for the kids and great field activities. There were sack races and egg toss—as well as plenty of cool watermelon, lemonade and popsicles. This event was organized by the Meadows Village Committee. Without the support of volunteer residents, events like the Old Fashioned Fourth would not be possible. If you would like to support future events in the Meadows, contact the Village Committee at: MeadowsVillage@gmail.com If you live in a different village and would like to support your Village Committee, go to page 5 and contact your Village Chair.

     By this time of year, many of us have lost our enthusiasm for our gardens. This is understandable, because deadheading flowers (removing spent blooms), weeding, and watering can become a chore—especially in the August heat! But there are ways to reduce these chores.



Choosing native plants allows developed landscapes to coexist with nature, rather than compete with it. The benefits of native landscaping are fueling a gardening movement that says “no” to pesticides and fertilizers and “yes” to biodiversity and creating more sustainable landscapes. Novice and professional gardeners are turning to native landscaping to manage stormwater, reduce maintenance, and promote plant and wildlife conservation.





Native wildflowers, flowering vines, shrubs, and trees offer a wide range of colors, textures and forms to create dynamic seasonal displays. Grasses and sedges have interesting flowers and seed heads and yellow–orange fall color. Shrubs and trees have fall color and berries that persist into the winter. Choosing a wide assortment of plants ensures seasonal interest, with the bonus of attracting colorful birds, butterflies and insects. So, if you want to spend less time tending your landscaping, try adding a few native plants to your gardens. You’ll save time and money by watering less and skipping the fertilizer and pesticides. In addition, instead of attracting deer to your garden, you may find an array of colorful butterflies and birds. Go native!

Using moisture-loving plants in rain gardens and in bioretention areas slows down and absorbs rainwater, thus reducing the quantity and velocity of stormwater runoff while improving water quality.





Compared with lawns and mulched shrub and perennial plantings, landscapes planted with appropriate native plants require less maintenance. They require minimal watering (except during establishment and drought periods) and they need no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Native plants tolerate a wide variety of light and help prevent weeds from taking over due to their dense root systems.



A native plant garden or large planting with a diversity of trees, shrubs, perennials, and grasses provides food and shelter for insects, birds, amphibians, and mammals throughout the growing season. Leaving seed heads and plant structure throughout winter provides continuing food and shelter for many creatures and provides opportunities to observe nature up close. 22

Shaping Our Path Forward as a Community by Christine Dagostino

“Have you heard?”

“Have you heard that they are going to ______?” Fill in that blank with replacing a green space or open common area in our community with a structure—be it a parking lot, house, road, or a bridge—You will then have before you the most often asked question that I regularly get from people when they hear that I am Chair of Friends of the Lake, (FOL). This question is usually expressed with either hostile outrage or wistful surrender—especially when expressed by residents of our community. While both of these are natural reactions to hearing of impending change, neither is useful to our community unless we can collectively channel that energy. Whether it is a longing for the past or anger over construction in your backyard, that initial reaction can be channeled into positive action. For when we participate in an ongoing respectful conversation collectively, we begin to shape our path forward as a community.

“But Wait!”

“But wait!” I hear next. Then the list begins—the list of reasons why this person talking to me is not qualified or not able to take their thoughts outside into the public arena. Let me tell you this…as a former wallflower and historically staunch follower of others, I get how it feels to step outside your comfort zone. I understand why you can’t come to meetings or join a committee when you can barely get home for dinner and you already can’t process the mass amounts of information coming at you every day from all sides. I can relate to the burnout and apathy that takes up residence within us and refuses to leave. So what if you want to be part of this dialogue but you have a million reasons why you just can’t fit it into your schedule? Well, you have already taken the first step by following me this far on the page (which I appreciate because I do not specialize in keeping it short and sweet). Whether you want to stick your baby toe in the water or dive right in, here are some ways to take that next step out into your community.

Meetings Matter

24

laketalk August-2013

While this may be the most obvious (and most unrealistic) option for many, it has to be said that residents can attend monthly Board Meetings to keep abreast of community issues. This is how the Board Members learn about community sentiments and find out what is really important to residents. There is a public/resident forum at the beginning of monthly Board Meetings where residents can ask questions, raise issues and voice concerns. You can sign up to speak (as a resident) when you arrive at the meeting. There is a sign up sheet by the front door to the LLA office. You can also contact the LLA Office at their main number (301-831-6400) if you have questions about how this process works.

Participating from Home

Friends of the Lake has requested that the Board/LLA begin webcasting monthly Board Meetings to allow residents who cannot attend these meetings to stay informed. This would allow residents to participate and learn about what is happening in our community from their computers at home. I have personally requested that residents be allowed to submit questions and concerns to the Board of Directors and the LLA in advance to be addressed at meetings to allow those who cannot attend meetings to still have their concerns addressed and voices heard. There are technological and administrative processes that would have to be set up and implemented in order to make these changes happen (as nothing happens overnight), but these new features would increase accessibility and in effect increase community awareness and participation.

Joining the Conversation through Email

Staying in contact with the Board of Directors via email on an ongoing basis is also a wonderful way to be a part of the ongoing dialogue concerning current and future issues in our community. You should always feel free to let them know your concerns and to offer any proactive alternatives to the tough challenges they face when making decisions. You can email the entire board by sending your thoughts to: bod@lakelinganore.org

Getting the Story Firsthand

For those who would like to read firsthand what is going on at monthly Board Meetings, the monthly Board Meeting minutes are also posted (and archived) on the Lake Linganore website at: www.lakelinganore.org/board-of-directors/. If you are looking for a specific month and it is not listed online, simply contact the LLA Office and they will email you a copy. If you scroll down the page they are near the bottom on the right hand side. The minutes are reviewed and approved for the previous month at the start of each meeting, then they are posted on this site.

Dialogue with the Developer

FOL has been speaking regularly with Jason Wiley who is managing the development project at Lake Linganore for Oakdale Investments, LLC. Jason is a Vice President at Elm Street Development (www.elmstreetdev.com/index.asp). Jason has a BS degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Duke University and a Master in Business Administration from the University of Virginia. He resides in Urbana and is the father of four young children. He is totally open to answering any questions residents have about the development here in Linganore. Jason has met with FOL outside of Board Meetings to hear our concerns and discuss some proactive ideas we have. We have thoroughly discussed the desire to balance the needs of the developer (Oakdale Investments, LLC) with the needs of our current residents and our


beautiful and sensitive ecosystem here in Lake Linganore. Jason can be contacted at jwiley@elmstreetdev.com or at (703) 734-9730 and has encouraged me to share his contact information with anyone who has questions, concerns, or suggestions about this project. I also would like to add that it is my understanding that Oakdale is planning to bring in a company called Land Design (http://www.landdesign.com/) as a consultant to spearhead the design and development of green spaces, open spaces, future village themes, community branding, landscapes and amenities throughout the development areas within Lake Linganore. Starting in the Fall of 2013, there are plans to hold resident forums at various times to allow residents to voice their opinions, concerns, and proactive solutions as to how our community should look in the future. We have also requested that Jason Wiley allow residents who cannot attend these meetings to submit questions, concerns, opinions, and solutions to him and Land Design in advance of these forums to be addressed at these meetings. FOL has requested that these forums/meetings be webcast so that more residents can stay involved in this process.

Reach Out to the Strategic Planning Committee

Residents can also contact the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC). The Strategic Planning Committee is composed of a mix of residents from various villages committed to gathering, organizing and providing feedback on what the residents would like to see in the future for LLA. You can learn about the SPC at: http://www.lakelinganore.org/strategic-planning/ To voice concerns, ask questions, and offer proactive solutions to tough issues facing our community, email the SPC at: LLAStrategicplanning@gmail.com. They hold meetings on the first Thursday of every month from 6-8pm in the LLA Office.

The Journey Ahead

There are many decisions to be made in the future during this development process, and the LLA and Board of Directors have worked very hard so far to negotiate and push for the protection of the original vision of Lake Linganore. Fundamental to this effort has been the achievement of a Memorandum of Understanding, (MOU) between the Association and Oakdale Investments, LLC. You can read the MOU at: http://www.lakelinganore.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/ LLA-Oakdale-MOU-Recorded.pdf It was through this document, for example, that the General Manager and the Board of Directors were able to prevent the development of the Barn area (where the Events Tent is currently located on Eaglehead Drive). It is my understanding that this area was previously slated for development. There could have been up to 80 condos developed in that area along Eaglehead Drive and now that will not happen. The recent passage of the DRRA ensures that this legal agreement between the developer (Oakdale Investments, LLC) and Frederick County will guide development over the next 25 years according to set stipulations. For example, it

limits the number of units built per year and directs funding from the developer towards the construction of roads, water, sewer and school infrastructure in the area to support the needs of current and future residents. You can read a synopsis of Linganore DRRA at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/139720452/Oakdale-DRRA-InfoMap-Handout I think it is also important to note that the developer is subject to mandatory Environmental Site Design (ESD) practices under the 2007 Maryland Stormwater Management Act. These guidelines are much more comprehensive than previous (and sometimes voluntary) practices used during the original development of Lake Linganore. A good resource for an overview of these regulations is located here: http://www.rodgers.com/pdf/Rodgers-ESD-reference-guide.pdf Understanding these stormwater management regulations may help residents understand some of the principles and practices to which the developer is required to adhere.

We Are Not Alone

Lake Linganore at Eaglehead is often described as a place like nowhere else. Although our challenges are unique in our area, we are not the first lake community to face tough decisions when trying to balance the needs of residents with the needs of the land, waters, forests, and wildlife. There are other communities that are designed around reservoirs, lakes and drinking water sources that have taken proactive steps to protect their land and develop responsibly. One example is Brandermill, a community in Chesterfield County, Virginia with a heavily wooded landscape located around the Swift Creek Reservoir (a drinking water source). This community developed a Natural Resources Management Plan to guide future Boards and residents in the preservation and maintenance of natural resources within the community. Check out this link for more details: http://www. brandermill.com/files/2/content_entry/6/chpt_two.pdf

The Bottom Line

The bottom line here is that ALL opinions in Lake Linganore matter and there are many ways to be heard even when your schedule does not allow for regular attendance at meetings. There are many ways to voice questions, concerns and opinions in a proactive and respectful way so that the future of our community can reflect the very diverse wants and needs of our residents, ecosystem and developer in a balanced way. You don't have to be an expert in anything to get involved and ask questions. You are not powerless in this situation, and your voice can add influence and weight to decisions made about our future if you continue to contribute to the dialogue about our community's future.
