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. 

Great plan so far! Needs an intro to explain what the term sustainability means. Let's lay out the concepts of social, economic and environmental sustainability. Many folks will assume this plan focuses narrowly on environmental, eco or green concepts like LEED, reduce/re-use/recycle, storm water management, active transportation, climate change, etc. and that assumption might prevent some people from reading, participating, speaking up and helping to implement the plan.
