TAKOMA PARK – In a meeting lasting until 1:30 a.m., the Takoma Park City Council voted to approve the concept plan Wednesday evening and continue the process to redevelop Takoma Junction.

The council voted 6-1 to approve the concept plan and move forward in the redevelopment process with Neighborhood Development Corporation (NDC), the contractor chosen for the project. Council member Tim Male (Ward 2) cast the sole dissenting vote.

“I’m trying to send a signal that there’s things that they need to pay attention to so that when we get to the site plan stage, we’re actually in the right place as opposed to going in the wrong direction,” Male said.

Takoma Park residents speak out on junction development

  • Published in Local

TAKOMA PARK – In a meeting lasting into the early morning hours of Oct. 12, the Takoma Park City Council heard comments from residents on the proposed Takoma Junction development project.

“It’s always nice to hear members of the community come out and voice their opinion,” Mayor Kate Stewart said after the conclusion of the meeting. “Later in the work session, I think a lot of the same themes came up regarding wanting more public space, more community space, concerns about the overall massing of the building.”

The proposed project, located at the junction of Carroll, Ethan Allen, and Grant avenues, would redevelop a city-owned parking lot flanked by the Takoma Park-Silver Spring Food Co-op and Healy Surgeons. The Takoma Auto Clinic, located on the lot, is slated to relocate should redevelopment plans move forward.

As the extension for the letter of intent between the Takoma Park-Silver Spring Co-op and developer NDC wind downs once again, progress seems to be halted.

On Dec. 7, the Takoma Park City Council granted a 30-day extension for the Co-op and NDC to come up with a letter of intent for the next steps in the process but not without strain on many involved.

“I have to say, as council member [Rizzy] Qureshi said, there were moments in the last three days where I said, ‘No, we’re not going to do the 30-day extension,’” said Mayor Kate Stewart at the Dec. 7 council meeting.
