Resident complains about people hanging out in parts of development
SMITHSBURG - A Mountain Shadows subdivision resident told Smithsburg Town Council members Tuesday night about problems with people hanging out in undeveloped parts of the development and how her house was vandalized with paintballs recently.
Nicole Sullivan said people often drive into the undeveloped parts of the subdivision off East Water Street and sit in their cars.
Sullivan also said grass grows high in the development in the summer, which Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers said is prohibited.
Town attorney Charles Wagaman told council members that a barricade could probably be put up at the beginning of the undeveloped section of the subdivision to keep people from driving in those areas.
Council member Jerome Martin suggested sending a letter to the developer about the concerns. Martin suggested having any high grass mowed and attaching the bills to the developers' taxes unless the problems are resolved.
