Some residents don't like expansion in Lansdale. In Frederick County, Maryland some residents don't like the Lansdale expansion
Here's something cool involving "Lansdale." Residents of Monrovia, Frederick County, Maryland, have taken to Facebook and PetitionSite.org to rally support against “Downzone Lansdale.” This Lansdale is a planned unit development in the city of Monrovia; more than 115 people have signed the online petition. The petition claims the Lansdale development will burden the taxpayers and adversely affect the community because the developer is not contributing to “inadequate infrastructure” and “overcrowding of schools.” They want a smaller site, larger lot sizes and the developer’s financial responsibilities to be expanded, according to the petition. R.A.L.E. – Residents Against Lansdale Expansion, a nonprofit, hit Facebook on Jan. 7.

Area children put their gingerbread skills on display
To help local children enjoy the creative side of the holiday season, the Lansdale Library hosted an gingerbread-house building event on Thursday evening. "We provided cardboard forms in the shape of a house and the kids are using icing, graham crackers and all different types of candies to decorate however they like," said Tom Meyer, director of the Lansdale Library. "It's great. It looks like everyone is having a lot fun, and the one girl was shaping the gum drops into a wreath. It's amazing the things they're coming up with." Though there was no fee for admission this year, Meyer said he'd like to see the event grow into a fundraiser by this time next year.
