Topic: WMCCA often fields concerns about what constitutes the commercial core of Potomac Village. The built commercial environment in our shopping centers usually have store fronts but there are other businesses cropping up beyond those spaces and they operate under different regulations. What are they? How and under what conditions are they sanctioned? Mr. Motazedi will discuss applicable zoning regulations, business and home occupancy requirements and signage. He will take questions regarding individual properties and ongoing problems residents may have noticed that go unreported.
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.
