Stories from the NFCCA Newsletter, the “Northwood News”
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. ■
