Greetings, Stonestreet Community:
The next meeting for the Stonestreet Corridor Study will be held on Thursday, July 13 at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Community Center, 357 Frederick Ave. The focus of the meeting will be the sites on the corridor that are owned by Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). MCPS will present information about existing facilities and functions, property constraints, and long-term needs. City Staff will facilitate a discussion about possible land use alternatives.
The MCPS sites were identified as key to the corridor by participants at the May 2 kickoff meeting for the study. More than 100 people attended that kickoff from around Rockville, including residents from Lincoln Park and East Rockville, representatives from the business community, churches, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, and MCPS. Some of the issues raised included traffic and congestion, pedestrian safety, improving how the corridor looks, supporting existing businesses, keeping the area affordable, and promoting mixed-use development in certain areas. Future meetings will cover these and other topics.
For a more inclusive list of comments from the kickoff meeting, as well as to sign up for email updates or submit comments, please visit www.rockvillemd.gov/stonestreetstudy.
Always feel free to contact me directly by phone or email if you have questions or would like additional information.
Hope to see you at the next meeting!
