Many years ago, the Mayor and Town Council had numerous discussions regarding a Green Street.  A proposal emerged from those discussions to have a stormwater management project along the Boyd Park side of 62nd Avenue.  The staff met with representatives from Prince George’s County and the State and submitted a grant application to the Chesapeake Bay Trust Fund.  Many years later, the grant has been approved in the amount of $121,833.  A budget adjustment in expenditures and revenues is required.
