Want a Voice in the Direction of the White Flint Sector?  September offers several opportunities!

Tuesday, September 10th, 8am:
White Flint Downtown Advisory Committee Meeting
Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
After a summer sabbatical, the Downtown Advisory Committee will resume their meetings tomorrow morning.  The White Flint Downtown Advisory Committee was established by the County Executive and is comprised of representatives from commercial real estate owners, business owners and residents.  It also includes members from the Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce, the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board and non-voting members representing the County Executive’s office, County Council and the North Bethesda Transportation Management District.  Tasked with advising county departments on necessary public services, coordinating community placemaking, advancing walkability and business interests, the Committee has a goal of recommending the feasibility and timing for the establishment of a White Flint Urban District.

Saturday, September 14th, 9am-2pm:
Friends of White Flint at
Pike Central Farmers Market

Every month, the Friends of White Flint team can be found at Pike Central Farmers Market waiting to chat with you about the changes coming to White Flint. Stop by and share your thoughts and ideas!

Wednesday, September 18th, 7pm-9pm:
Wall Park Public Meeting
Shriver Aquatic Center

The Montgomery County Parks Department wants to hear your ideas for a redesigned Wall Park.  The meeting will also feature preliminary information about plans for a new community recreation center and an expanded swim center on the site.

Thursday, September 19th, 6:30pm:
Friends of White Flint Board of Directors Meeting
Shulman Rogers, 12505 Park Potomac Avenue, 6th FL

Friends of White Flint Board of Directors meetings are open to all and are the primary forum for our organization’s discussion and business.  Please come to hear updates on projects within the White Flint Sector and to discuss ongoing issues, like transit and infrastructure.  We are accepting agenda items and RSVPs (though neither are required to attend) at info@WhiteFlint.org.

 

Tuesday, September 24th and
Thursday, September 26th, 7:30pm:
County Council Public Hearings on Bus Rapid Transit
100 Maryland Avenue, 3rd Floor Hearing Room, Rockville

You may have missed your opportunity to testify regarding Bus Rapid Transit but the plan for the stretch running through White Flint needs all of the support it can get.  Consider coming out to see your local government in action and make a difference in the future of your community!  Learn more by visiting NextGenTransit.org or emailing info@WhiteFlint.org.

Thursday, October 3rd, 6:00pm:
MD355 Rapid Transit Roundtable
County Executive Office Building Cafeteria,
101 Monroe Street, Rockville

I know this is pushing into October but we are excited to co-host this event with many great Smart Growth partners. As population and traffic continue to rise, how can we design the MD355 corridor to move more people and connect our communities all the way from Friendship Heights to Clarksburg? Join residents, local businesses, institutions and stakeholders of all kinds to learn about the County’s Rapid Transit proposal, get your questions answered by County officials and engage in a collaborative discussion about ways to transform Rockville Pike into a safe, sustainable, multi-modal boulevard of the future.  Learn more  here.

Finally, stay tuned for an exciting announcement from our friends at Paladar Latin Kitchen.  They’re about to launch a program where your dollars spent on guacamole and mojitos (and every other delicious menu item) will benefit the work of Friends of White Flint!

Looking forward to seeing you in September!
