District 9 councilman launches online resident survey Prince George County Councilman Mel Franklin (D Dist. 9) of Upper Marlboro is seeking feedback from south county residents via an online survey, the latest in a series of web based tools Franklin has embraced since taking office. The District 9 Community Improvement Survey features questions about the quality of communities in south county, including roads, schools and the delivery of other services. Franklin said he is hoping to get block level information on issues in his district. Individual responses will be kept confidential, but Franklin said he plans to respond to anyone who participates. Although the survey will be available throughout the year, Franklin said he hopes to present some of the results in March as county officials consider the fiscal 2012 budget. Residents who cannot access the Internet but would like to participate can call Franklin office at 301 952 3820. Students from the University of Maryland, College Park are doing some research that could help Forest Heights. During the next couple of months, 12 students in the school Landscape Architecture Program will be looking into the town transportation, development and community needs and will create plans that the Forest Heights Town Council may want to adopt, said Jan Townshend, a program manager with the Neighborhood Design Center. The Riverdale organization put the students in touch with Forest Heights. At a Feb. 17 meeting, the students spoke to the residents about the kinds of changes that could benefit the town and also took suggestions from residents, Townshend said. Students will spend the rest of the semester developing proposals that might range from suggesting a walking bridge over Route 210, which cuts through the center of the town, to suggesting the need for senior housing. Jones, the daughter of Ellis and Gail Jones of Upper Marlboro, is a junior at Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School in Upper Marlboro. She is a member of First Rock Baptist Church in Washington and enjoys singing, dancing, playing musical instruments and volunteering.
