Prior to the meeting, Federal Realty will be presenting some changes in its plans for Mid-Pike Plaza. Not sure what they are, but Evan Goldman suggests that they are “minor.” Federal Realty is seeking community input on the changes before offering them to the Planning Board for review.
And after the meeting, the Friends of White Flint Board of Directors will hold a brief, informal meeting to discuss a process for considering and evaluating various proposals for the community organization’s interaction with the County government and the Planning Board. Some have suggested that the website whiteflint.org be operated by, or in conjunction with, the County; others have proposed that FoWF itself become closer to one or more County agencies.
Reaction to the proposals has been mixed. County Councilmembers and others who have reacted to these plans have cautioned against losing the organization’s independent voice. So the FoWF Board is trying to determine how to proceed on these suggestions. Tuesday’s meeting will just determine whether a FoWF meeting is warranted and set a schedule.
