Nestled between Millford Mill and Campfield Roads on one side, Rocklyn and Rockridge on the other and next to Sudbrook Park, the Williamsburg Community is comprised of over 300 households. Built in the late 50’s and early 60’s it has close access to both Liberty and Reisterstown Roads as well as a Metro Station on Millford Mill/Slade Ave.
Some years ago John and Allison Seymour, residents of the community, breathed new life into the association which had only been meeting intermittently with Mr. Seymour becoming its president and Ms. Seymour providing much technical support. Since that time our association has grown to a voluntary membership of approximately 70 households with the purpose of bonding neighbors and increasing the safety and morale of the neighborhood.
The Williamsburg Community Association has an active Board of Directors and has four general membership meetings a year which are held at the Pikesville Public Library. It also has an active Citizen On Patrol Program headed by Mr. Gary Carter. Our association had been awarded a block grant for this activity for each of the last two years. The program allows citizens to be the “eyes and ears” of the police and together with iWatch Crime Alerts, posted by Mr. Carter on our new website and on another site entitled Nextdoor Williamsburg residents are able to stay well-informed about the happenings in the community.
The Association has been a voice for the community by interacting with code enforcement, working with BG&E to rebuild some of our power infrastructure and ensure that things like toppled fire hydrants are put back up and reinstalled. Over a dozen Neighborhood Watch/COP and Drive Like Your Kids Live Here signs have been purchased and installed through the proceeds of dues paying members. All money collected through dues and generous donations of the membership are re-invested into the community.
The Association participates in the National Night Out activity, which is always held on the first Tuesday of August, and also has an Annual Holiday Party for community members. National Night Out provides the neighborhood an opportunity to interact with our police precinct members and culminates with a barbeque and prizes for all. The Holiday Potluck Party, under the leadership of Ms. Ann Geare, has been a great success with a wide variety of foods. Last year, because of the efforts of another neighbor, we had our first ever Family Movie Night and thanks to Ms. Rhonda Bullock-Smith, a very generous children’s Book Give-Away. Ms. Pam Watkins has been organizing our successful Spring Clean-Up for several years. This community program brings a much appreciated shredder and dumpsters to the neighborhood annually.
In an ever increasing desire to serve the community better we are exploring new and interesting activities to allow neighbors an opportunity to get to know one another better. One idea has been to have a community bus trip. Other ideas are being considered as well.
We invite you to grow along with us by joining the Association and participating in some small way because, ” With everyone doing a little, TOGETHER we can do a lot.”
