Montgomery Council Committee to Discuss Development of Warner Park in Kensington

ROCKVILLE, Md., March 5, 2010—The Montgomery County Council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee on Monday, March 8, will hold a worksession on long-term plans to develop Warner Circle Special Park in Kensington. The worksession continues the work of the Council to review County Executive Isiah Leggett’s recommended Fiscal Years 2011-16 Capital Improvements Program (CIP).

The Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee, which is chaired by Mike Knapp and includes Councilmembers Marc Elrich and Nancy Floreen, will meet at 2 p.m. in the Seventh Floor Council Hearing Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville.

The discussion on Warner Circle Special Park is part of the review of the long-term budget requests of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.

Warner Circle Park is in the heart of the Kensington Historic District and was the home of Brainard Warner, the founder of Kensington. The 4.5-acre park was acquired in 2005-06 through the Legacy Open Space program. The site includes a 1890s Queen Anne house and a carriage house. The site was used as a nursing home until 2005 and has been vacant since.

Park and Planning intends to preserve the two historic buildings, preserve the landscape space that has served as an unofficial park for decades; and to provide a public benefit by finding use for the buildings. The main building could provide office space for 30-35 employees.
