In September 2016, the City kicked off the rewrite of its Community Sustainability Plan. Updated every five years, the plan lays out the vision and priorities for the City in the upcoming years. After two series of public meetings and lots of work on our end, the draft of the plan is available for review. 


The plan in its entirety is attached to this page for review. List any comments you may have, whether they are editorial or content based, in the comment section. Comments will be accepted until Friday, May 5. 


There will also be two opportunities to meet with us to discuss the draft. Staff will be at the City Building on Saturday, April 22 at 1 PM. We will also be holding an open house on Tuesday, April 25 at 6:30 PM at Edward M. Felegy Elementary School . 


If you have any questions, please contact Katie Gerbes at or 301-985-5059.

I would love to see the downtown area revitalized. I would like small businesses: restaurants, bars, coffee shops, odds and ends (e.g., Vigilante, Arts & Crafts, Tanglewood, Three Little Birds, Green Owl, Franklins, Sugar Vault). It would also be amazing for the city to start facilitating DIY projects to help homeowners improve their gardens and homes. I would also like a framers market that is on the weekends when more folks are available. Also, credits and incentives to improve older buildings rather than gutting/tearing down.
