Public Forum on New Plans for Woodmont East II

Councilman Roger Berliner (D-1) is hosting a public forum where the developers will present their revised plans for this critical property located at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Aves. Community members will also have a chance to ask questions and voice their opinions. The forum will be held on Tuesday January 8th from 7-9pm at Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center located at 4805 Edgemoor La. in Bethesda.

More from Councilman Berliner's flyer for the forum:

Woodmont East is a proposed 539,825 square foot mixed-use development project (hotel, retail, and housing) located at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Avenues and extends over to Elm Street. After serious concerns were expressed by community members, the Montgomery County Planning Board, and Councilmember Berliner, the project developers asked the Planning Board to defer action on the proposal until they had an opportunity to revise the plan. The presentation on the 8th will reflect the project sponsor’s response to the concerns raised by the community.
