Zimmerman Park Forum
Wednesday, September 26, 7 p.m., Town Hall

On Wednesday, September 26 at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall, the Town will host a forum to hear from residents about potential improvements to Zimmerman Park.  The contemplated improvements include an off-leash dog exercise area as well as a paved pathway and staircase leading to the sidewalk along East West Highway.  The former improvement is in response to a petition from over 300 residents asking for an area in Town where dogs can exercise off-leash during certain limited hours each day.  The latter improvement is in response to the closure of the Capital Crescent Trail and the Town’s interest in providing pedestrians with a safer route to downtown Bethesda and B-CC High School.  


You can learn more and provide feedback about these two proposed Zimmerman Park improvements by attending the forum on Wednesday, September 26. Also see the FAQs, three concept maps, and the Land Use Committee’s report. The feedback gathered at the September 26 forum will help the Town understand community sentiment and answer residents’ concerns and comments about the proposed improvements. After the forum, the Town Council will consider hiring a professional design company to create detailed plans which would then be reviewed with residents at a public hearing later this year. Any final decisions regarding these improvements would be subject to the public hearing.
