Time: 7:15 p.m.
Location: Potomac Community Center
If schools are closed because of inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled.
Speaker: Andy Frank, Supervisor - Environmental Engineering Section of Montgomery Parks
Topic: Mr. Frank’s group is responsible for all engineering aspects of construction on parkland. Since Parks owns the vast majority of stream valleys throughout Montgomery County, they are involved with a lot of water quality projects. Almost all of the ICC Environmental Mitigation work was done on parkland, and a big portion of the WSSC Consent Decree work impacts Parks. They also implement their own Water Quality projects in support of their NPDES MS4 Permit through Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE).
As always, the public is encouraged to attend our meetings.
When farmers bartered for supplies at Perry Store in Offutt’s Crossroad in 1880, Potomac was an agricultural community where transportation relied on the C&O Canal and horse-drawn wagons on dirt roads. Today, we see something far different.
Yet much remains constant. Great Falls, the Potomac River, and the Canal still draw us. Forested stream valleys, rural roads, and Potomac Village still define our community. The look and feel of Potomac today is no accident. Much of what we hold dear is due to the vigilance of volunteers working to preserve what is best here – a community that values our history, the environment, and our role as “Green Wedge” in the overall vision of county planners.
We invite you to become one of the team to insure the continued beauty of this area. If you are interested in preserving the beauty of Potomac, please become a member.
