Town's Long Range Planning Committee
to Discuss Farm Women's Market Development

The Town’s Long-Range Planning Committee will meet on Tuesday, December 11 in the Town Hall at 7 p.m. to review the latest information on the proposed Farm Women’s Market development. 
 
At this time, there is one sketch plan being submitted to the Planning Board that proposes:
  • townhouses on Lot 10 with a greenway between the Town and the townhouses; 
  • a new building on Lot 24 behind the Ford Building; 
  • a new pavilion behind the Farm Women’s Market also on Lot 24; 
  • a new park on the remainder of the land on Lot 24;
  • redevelopment of the Farm Women’s Market; and 
  • a new high-rise building on the south side of the Farm Women’s Market.  
Another proposal is being submitted at the same time that would only include the building on the south side of the Farm Women’s Market, leaving both parking lots as parking lots.



Please Donate to the Town’s Holiday Gift Drive for Families of Abuse

The Holiday Gift Drive asks you to be generous on behalf of needy County victims of domestic violence and their children.  The deadline for donations is Monday, December 16.  You have two donation options: 1) gift cards in denominations from $10 to $50 for stores such as Target, Marshalls, Kohl's, Ross, or Giant or 2) checks made out to the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation (MCFJC Foundation).  Take or mail your donation to the Town Office, or put it through Ann Wild's mail slot at 7104 Oakridge Avenue.  (To receive an acknowledgment for tax purposes, BE SURE to include your name and e-mail address on the envelope.)  If you prefer to “adopt” a family and shop for specific items for them, contact Cathy Wolf at cathrynwolf2@gmail.com.   The drive is coordinated by the Community Relations Committee.  Thanks so much for your generosity!
