Stories from the NFCCA Newsletter, the “Northwood News”

Northwood News ♦ April 2002


NFCCA board member Alan Friedman reports that the lobbying for Timberwood/Sutherland streetscape maintenance funding is progressing.  He attended a Citizens Revitalization Committee meeting, with the result that the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Committee (SSCAC) will be testifying before the County Council on 9 April in favor, as will other civic associations in Silver Spring.  Rusty Wallace of SSCAC is very supportive.  Alan is sending a letter to the County Council on behalf of NFCCA.

If anyone from our civic association wishes to testify or write a letter, that would be great.  Also, FYI, in the long run, the county may push for the creation of a special taxing district for the Four Corners merchants to cover maintenance costs.  A study showed that the merchant base is too small, so that issue should prove to be interesting.   ■
