      Roundtable Discussion on September 15 on the Woodmont East Development and the Two+ Year Bethesda Tunnel Closure


      Councilmember Roger Berliner is hosting a Roundtable Discussion on the proposed Woodmont East Development Project on Saturday, September 15, 2007, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center.  See the Roundtable Announcement     http://www.cctrail.org/Woodmontroundtable.pdf

      As we previously reported at   http://www.cctrail.org/CCT_News_and_Events.htm#woodeast, a development proposal is being submitted to the Montgomery County Planning Board to build a hotel, residential units, and an underground parking garage at the northeast corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Avenues. The developer is proposing closing the Bethesda Trail Tunnel for over two years during project construction.

      We encourage trail supporters to attend this roundtable discussion to express their views to Councilmember Berliner and to the development team about closing the Bethesda trail tunnel. The Regional Services Center is at 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda. Detailed directions to the Regional Services Center are available on the Montgomery County Website at www.montgomerycountymd.gov.

      ===============================

      Woodmont East is a proposed 539,825 square foot mixed-use development project (hotel, retail, and housing) located at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Avenues and extends over to Elm Street. The project is currently under review by the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission and contemplates temporary rerouting of the Capital Crescent Trail during construction.
