SPEAKER: MARC ZWEBEN – Potomac Resident – Willerburn Acres Neighborhood

When he learned Montgomery County Department of Transportation (DOT) planned extensive destruction of roadside trees in his neighborhood to install sidewalks, he went to work to save as many as possible.  Establishing a connection with the agency, speaking on behalf of his community, and seeking help from county environmental groups, Marc brought the issue out into the open where a real discussion can take place about how to provide a needed amenity like sidewalks while respecting an established environmental benefit like tree canopy.  Many of the trees slated for destruction are now specimens and as such, critical to successfully fighting climate change.  Marc has helped DOT think about alternatives to using only concrete and the compromise can help a host of other neighborhoods with sidewalk projects in the pipeline.  Marc will talk about how his effort changed the project, saved trees, while providing additional mobility and safer walking for residents.

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.
