Also on the Advisory Board's Agenda is a presentation by representatives of JBG Rosenfeld on the proposed Pike Center re-development. Located on Rockville Pike near the Twinbrook Metro Station, the Pike Center project will include new housing and a Wal-Mart supermarket.

As always, Advisory Board meetings are open to the public. Monday's meeting will be held at the BCC Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor Lane, from 7-9PM. All are welcome to attend and participate.
