Save the date for the 2nd annual Montgomery Hills Street Fest. The Fest is Saturday, September 21st from 3-7 pm.
It was frustrating and disappointing to hear that the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) decided to not file for a federal BUILD grant to help fund the Georgia Ave improvements. But we still have an opportunity to convince State and County officials that the Georgia Ave improvements are worthy of funding. This makes the Straat Fest this year even more important!
Residents from the neighborhoods adjoining Montgomery Hills, the geographic area surrounding Georgia Avenue from 16th Street to Forest Glen Road, will gather on Sat., Sept. 21, 2019, at the 2nd Annual Montgomery Hills Street Fest, to generate support for fixing the unsafe, congested seven-lane roadway, improving pedestrian access, and enhancing the retail environment. More than one dozen elected officials, including Rep. Jamie Raskin (MD-08), State Delegates from District 18 and 20, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and Councilmember Tom Hucker, are expected to join the gathering to hear locals’ opinions on why funding the redesign of Georgia Ave. should be a top priority. Attendees will also experience all Montgomery Hills has to offer, including food from area establishments, beer from our local breweries, and a variety of entertainment including carnival games (from local PTAs), and neighborhood bands.
We will post updates here in the upcoming weeks – or you can follow the Fest on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/544233966342615.
We can’t wait to see you there!
