Hekimian has worked on plan to preserve Symphony Woods [Letters]

April 08, 2013

Alex Hekimian exemplifies the best qualifications to represent Oakland Mills on the CA Board of Directors! I have known Alex for over 15 years and he has consistently impressed me with his dedication. He is honest, knowledgeable and tireless in his efforts to maintain the highest standards for our city and its citizens!

In 2011 as CA was finalizing plans for a $6 million clubhouse construction at Hobbits Glen, they were also planning to close three pools and some tot lots in Oakland Mills. Alex went to bat for our village and our children. He lobbied CA to guarantee that all pools and tot lots in Oakland Mills remained open!

In the Jan. 24 Columbia Flier, Alex's opponent wrote that Symphony Woods has "no thriving natural habitat which merits careful conservation." Not only is Symphony Woods the "open space" designated for Town Center, but it is the mature set of trees where owls live and where every child who has grown up in Columbia has cherished memories of family and community celebrations.

Alex has worked with Cy Paumier to create a plan for enhancing Symphony Woods to ensure it is preserved for future generations.
