Particular thanks goes to former Governor Parris Glendening, now a leader with Smart Growth America, White Flint champion Councilmember Roger Berliner and Ramona Bell-Pearson from County Executive Leggett’s office.

Although pedestrians must often walk in foul weather, it isn’t the ideal condition for a community walking tour.  Since tomorrow’s forecast is calling for near-certain rain, we are rescheduling the White Flint Walking Tour to Saturday, October 25th at 9:15am.  We’ll still meet at the Pike Central Farmers Market, we’ll still take about a one-mile walk around White Flint to talk about how it feels to walk and bike around here, and, we’ll still be joined by former Governor Parris Glendening of Smart Growth America’s Leadership Institute.…

You’re invited to a Conversation on the Branding of the Pike on Thursday, September 11th from 6pm to 9pm at the offices of StreetSense in Bethesda.
