June Advisory Board topics

A number of critical and timely issues are on the agenda of the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board this month.

On Monday, June 11 (7pm) the Quality of Life/Public Safety Committee will hear from the Parks Department on the PROS plan - the County's blueprint for park, ballfields, and community recreation. The Committee will also receive a public safety briefing from Fire Battalion Chief Jim Resnick.

That same evening at 8pm, the Land Use/Transportation Committee will receive a presentation from the Planning Department on development projects in Bethesda, North Bethesda, and White Flint. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about what's breaking ground and when.

The full Advisory Board is meets next on June 18, 7pm. On the agenda is a report from Councilmember Hans Riemer; a presentation and discussion on proposed accessory apartments legislation; and a discussion of utilities vegetation management legislation.

Advisory Board meetings are open to the public and are a good way to keep informed. Guests are welcome to participate in discussions. The June meetings will take place at the B-CC Regional Services center, 4805 Edgemoor Lane in Bethesda. We hope to see you at an upcoming meeting!
