The Randolph Hills Shopping Center will be the site of a placemaking event in October. The Randolph Civic Association is collaborating with the owner of the shopping center, Montgomery County Planning, the Better Block Foundation, and local businesses to reimagine the Randolph Hills Shopping Center over a weekend. From October 8-11, there will be community led design and build activities. This will be followed by the grand opening and placemaking festival from October 12-14. The lessons learned from this placemaking event will help inform permanent designs. Before the event, we are requesting your input through a survey.
They are encouraging broad community input so that they can make this event successful and inclusive. You can find the survey here:
