Yesterday, the Friends of White Flint held its 2010 Annual Meeting. At the Meeting, and the Board of Directors meeting which followed, three new members of the Board of Directors were seated, one from each of the three “classes” of Friends’ membership: residents, businesses, and property owners.
Todd Lewers, representative of the Forum Condominium, was elected to the open Residents and Community Associations seat. Todd is Co-Director, Federal Programs, for Roth/Viridian, a facilities services company specializing in automation controls, HVAC maintenance, electrical/lighting, roofing, day lighting, solar energy, wind generation and other facility services and energy management tools and techniques. Last year, he testified before the Montgomery County Council in support of the White Flint Sector Plan.
Mike Smith, representative of LCOR White Flint, LLP, was elected to the open Property Owners/Developers seat. LCOR is building the North Bethesda Center at the White Flint Metro station. North Bethesda Center is already approved for development, and includes the new Harris Teeter grocery store. Mike has been active in the White Flint planning process since the beginning, including participating on the 2006-2008 White Flint Advisory Group and the 2008-09 White Flint Steering Committee. He has been an active member of Friends of White Flint and served on the Board of Directors in 2009.
Mike Springer, representative of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, was elected to the open Business seat. Mike served on the Executive Committee of the original Transportation Action Partnership (TAP) and was a member of the Montgomery County-sponsored task force to develop recommendations for what became the North Bethesda Transportation Management District (TMD). He was a member of both the 1994 North Bethesda-Garrett Park Master Plan Citizens Advisory Committee and the 2006 White Flint Sector Plan Advisory Committee. He has been an active member of Friends of White Flint, including hosting the 2009 White Flint Town Hall, and served on the Board of Directors in 2009.
Each of the new members will serve three-year terms on the FoWF Board of Directors.
