What you missed at last night’s board/community meeting

Here’s what you missed at last night’s fast-paced Friends of White Flint board and community meeting:
  • The minutes from the June meeting were approved.
  • Executive Director Amy Ginsburg thanked everyone for their membership dues and noted that FOWF is in a pretty good place financially due to everyone’s generosity.
  • Amy reminded everyone to participate in our #PickthePike social media campaign.
  • Amy thanked everyone for their emails to MCDOT on Montrose Parkway East and reported that MCDOT is working in good faith to make this road fit the spirit of the White Flint sector plan.
  • Amy reported that FOWF testified in favor of a Rapid Transit System along Route 355 and that the Transit Task Force will craft their final report and recommendations on October 7.
  • The board voted unanimously to add three spots to the board of directors composed of one resident, one business, and one property owner.
  • Nominations for the board were requested and submitted.  They nominations will be voted on at our annual meeting in November.
  • There was a vigorous discussion of membership dues, and it was agreed to table the discussion until next meeting so everyone would have the chance to think more about the proposed dues changes.  (The changes proposed included a voluntary $10 resident dues and voluntary HOA/Civic Association dues.)
  • Some community members suggested that it might be time to change how the board conducts its meetings, suggesting that some items be handled in a private board meeting and others discussed in a public forum/community meeting.  Other community members preferred the current structure of all public board meetings.  The board will think about this and discuss at a future meeting.
  • Montgomery Park and Planning made a presentation on the White Flint Bicycle Master Plan.
