What happened at last night’s FOWF community meeting

Whew — I’m impressed at how much we accomplished last night at our community/board meeting. Thanks to the fifty or so people who attended and participated.

  1. We approved a $53,300 budget for 2016.
  2. We voted to launch an advocacy campaign to “un-pave paradise and pull up the parking lot” in Wall Park. We are asking the County Council to include $6 million in funding for the Wall Park Garage and creating an 8-acre Park Paradise at Wall Park. Everyone’s participation in this campaign will be essential to its success — appearing at hearings, submitting testimony, and sending emails.  Look for tomorrow’s e-blast for details. You can also learn more at www.whiteflint.org/WallPark.
  3. MCDOT showed us plans for Towne Road/Hoya Street that include a cycle track, on-street parking, 7-and 8-foot sidewalks, and cafe seating. You can see the plans here.
  4. We voted to support the County Executive’s CIP budget request for $600,000 to finish the planning study for Rapid Transit.

Thanks again to all our speakers and participants!
