Town residents are encouraged to review and provide feedback on new concept plans proposed by the Town for an expanded ”greenway” as part of the Bethesda Downtown Plan. These plans propose converting the two parking lots adjacent to the Town along 46th Street into public park areas and extending green space down to St. John’s Church. The concepts, prepared by Town consultants, are available here.
At its January 12 work session, the Town Council reviewed and approved sharing these concept plans with the community and with County staff. Town representatives have met with Park and Planning officials who seem receptive to the proposals and have expressed interest in exploring these concepts in more depth.
We would like to hear what you think about the proposed plans and encourage you to submit your comments by February 12. Comments may be submitted to email@example.com. The staff draft of the Bethesda Downtown Plan is expected to be released in April 2015, followed by public hearings by the County Planning Board and County Council.
