SILVER SPRING Citizens Advisory Board to Host Capital Improvements Program Budget Forums MONDAY JULY 11, 2011 7pm at the Civic Building
Individuals and groups are invited to provide input into the County’s next six-year capital construction budget by attending this public forum that will be held by the citizen advisory boards. The forum will help define construction and planning priorities for the various regions in the County as officials develop the Fiscal Years 2013 to 2018 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget. The CIP includes costs for new or renovated major projects such as roads; public schools and Montgomery College facilities; water and sewer lines; parks, libraries, health and recreation facilities; and other public buildings and projects. Suggestions and comments from participants will be considered by the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board for inclusion in the funding priority lists they submit to the County Executive. The lists will also be shared with County departments and agencies.
SILVER SPRING Citizens Advisory Board to Host Forum on Four Corners Neighborhood MONDAY JULY 11, 2011 8pm at the Civic Building
The Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board and various civic organizations from the Four Corner communities did a wonderful “neighborhood tour” Saturday June 4th, 2011. The tour started with a gathering at the Silver Spring Stage where the 20+ participants were treated to a one act of the play playing at the theatre at that time. Afterward, the group walked around the neighborhood with community members highlighting issues and concerns to members of the Advisory Board. The exercise ended with lunch at a local eatery. This was the third such “neighborhood tour” that the Advisory Board conducted last Fiscal Year. (Similar tours were conducted in Long Branch and Lyttonsville.) The participants of the tour – and others from the Four Corner neighborhoods are now invited to share in a dialogue with the broader community as part of the Advisory Board regular meetings on Monday, July 11 at 8pm, immediately following the CIP Forum.
