Councilwomen organizing Town Halls to discuss Lower Richland Drop-Off Site

April 9, 2024

County Councilwomen Cheryl English (District 10) and Chakisse Newton (District 11) will co-host a pair of town hall meetings later this month to discuss recent developments to improve safety and decrease traffic congestion at the Lower Richland Drop-Off Center.

At the in-person meetings, residents of the Lower Richland community can ask questions and share ideas on changes made regarding the site, as well as options for potential relocation, which the County is currently exploring.

The District 10 and 11 town halls will take place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.:

  • Monday, April 22 at the Garners Ferry Adult Activity Center, 8620 Garners Ferry Road, Hopkins
  • Thursday, April 25 at the Hopkins Park Adult Activity Center, 144 Hopkins Park Road, Hopkins
