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.
