NFCCA Invited to Join PREZCO Group of Civic Associations

By Jim Zepp

The Presidents’ Council of Silver Spring Civic Associations, also known as “PREZCO,” has invited the NFCCA to become a member organization.  PREZCO was originally formed in the late 1990s to oppose plans for a mega-mall and giant wave pool that were proposed for Downtown Silver Spring (DTSS) and included civic associations clustered around the Downtown area within the Beltway.

The organization has continued to meet following the resolution of that issue to be able to respond to other matters affecting the Downtown Silver Spring area.  Currently, the following Civic Associations are members:  Indian Spring, Linden, Long Branch, North Hills of Sligo, North Woodside/Montgomery Hills, Park Hills, South Silver Spring, Seven Oaks-Evanswood, Sligo Branview, Woodside, Woodside Forest, and Woodside Park.

No dues are charged.  More information about PREZCO is available at

In recognition that issues of mutual interest may extend past the the Beltway, PREZCO had invited representatives from NFCCA — as well as the South Four Corners (SFCCA) and Woodmoor-Pinecrest Citizens Associations (WPCA) — to its April meeting.  The NFCCA and WPCA did attend and PREZCO members voted to invite both associations to join.  The WPCA membership have decided to accept.

NFCCA members will be asked to vote on this at the June meeting.

[Editor’s Note:  NFCCA members did vote to join PREZCO at their June 2014 meeting.]   ■
