Gentry(fication)There’s a sickness spreading throughout this nationGentry(fication) by Skargill
Its most visible symptom is the sign “Closed for renovation”
Afflicting homes, shops, schools and even churches
From town to town this plague lurches
And the pustules of this modern Pox
Are a begging bowl and cardboard box
You’ll find in the pages of a glossy brochure
All the homes marked for foreclosure
I'm a founding member of a fledgeling activist group in Southern Maryland. Our Current focus is to fight the growing level of Gentrification in the area.
The recent approval for Lexington Park to be a medical tax credit area has lead to MedStar and Chery Cove to begin plans for the construction of a clinic on Greatmills road. The area has been in need of a clinic for some time, as many low income residents are very far away from any clinic. However, the plans are to redevelop Lord Calvart Mobile home park, which is the largest mobile home park in the county, displacing hundreds of residents. Despite all of the vacant spots in the area, they have seen fit to displace the residents this clinic was suppose to help.
SIGN THE PETITION
Any residents of Southern Maryland, please sign this petition to help stop the "redevelopment" of Lord Calvert Park. Although non-local support is welcome, signatures from residents of Southern Maryland have more meaning in a Southern Maryland specific issue.
