A Good Place to Live

We who live here are not the only ones to think so!  See the Northwood News article, Four Corners Rated #1 Place to Live in Maryland, October 2015.

Serving on the NFCCA Board

Your civic association cannot function without the individuals in our neighborhood who volunteer their time and energy to represent us at numerous County meetings and hearings, give testimony, stay abreast of actions by local entities that affect us.  Perhaps it’s time you got involved?  Read Serving on the NFCCA Board to learn more.

Environment

Rachel Carson Meadow

The meadow in North Four Corners Park served as our “village green,” where Four Corners residents walk dogs, chat, watch fireflies, sled, toss a frisbee, read, and enjoy a hundred other pursuits.  It was a convenient spot for families, where kids could engage in unstructured outdoor play.  Next door to The Oaks independent living facility, it was also convenient for seniors.  Our 180+ Year Old Black Walnut Tree Residents named this green space after environmental activist and author Rachel Carson, who lived just on the other side of the Northwest Branch which borders NFCCA territory.

Since 2002, the Montgomery County Parks and Planning Board had been planning the destruction of Rachel Carson Meadow and its replacement by an adult-sized soccer field and 50-car parking lot.  While ostensibly working with the community on this plan, Parks and Planning consistently ignored the local residents’ desire to keep the existing meadow.  [See the latest story on the parkSearch the Northwood News for further stories.

Neighbors, let’s remain civil to each other!
