Bulk Trash

Have trouble remembering to call for bulk trash pickup? Try doing it online. This is the link for the bulk trash request form. The same restrictions apply as when you call (410-361-9333). You still need to do this by the Friday before the fourth Wednesday of the month for pickup (there's no limit to how early you can submit it). You can still only put out three items, which should be clearly marked as "BULK TRASH"; no building materials, please.

Tax Credits on Home Rehabilitations

Radnor Winston was named to the National Register of Historic Places, as of May 13, 2003, when the Governor's Consulting Committee approved Radnor Winston's nomination.

This approval means that properties within the historic district are eligible for a tax credits on rehabilitations over $5,000. This can include interior and exterior renovations. The state tax credit is designed to help preserve historic properties and revitalize older neighborhoods. More information on the homeowner tax credit at the Maryland Historical Trust.

We were named to the register because our neighborhood has a large number of intact houses (bungalows, cottages, American Foursquares, etc) built in the architectural style of the arts and crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th century. If you'd like a quickie history of the arts and craft movement and the rise of bungalow architecture, go to www.thebungalowcompany.com.

          

What streets of Radnor Winston are in the historic district?
The Governor's Consulting Committee limited our application to those areas with homes built before about 1927.

These streets are in the historic district: Winston, Rossiter, Radnor, Whiteford, Woodford, Crowson (except the west side of the 4800 block), 5100 block of Norwood and the 400 block of Charter Oak.

These streets are not in the historic district: Underwood, 300 block of Charter Oak and the west side of the 4800 block of Crowson.

Where can I get information about the state tax credit?
The best place is to go to the Maryland Historical Trust web site. This site has application forms and directions about how to qualify for tax credits for rehabbing historic properties. There is no restriction about what you can do with your house, but if you want the tax credit, there are some standards you must meet.


Our History

Radnor-Winston is one of a number of early suburban communities developed along the York Road street car line in the early decades of the 20th century, built on land where there had previously been a number of large country estates. Since 2003, Radnor-Winston is on the National Register of Historic Places and boasts a good mix of stand-alone houses and duplexes. Of the approximately 250 homes in the neighborhood, most are frame bungalows and four-squares built in the 1920s, and many retain their charming cedar shingles and Arts and Crafts detailing. Since 1958, the RWIA has been an active volunteer organization with a long history of activism on local issues of concern.
