Montgomery County Councilmember Valerie Ervin and D.C. Councilmember Muriel Bowser will extend their efforts to explore common issues that impact their jurisdictions that share a boundary when they co-host a unique community meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 14, at Shepherd Elementary School in Northwest Washington.

Shepherd Elementary is located at 7800 14th Street NW in Washington. Councilmember Ervin represents District 5, which includes Eastern Montgomery County. Councilmember Bowser represents Ward 4, which includes parts of upper Northwest D.C.

Councilmembers Bowser and Ervin frequently coordinate on issues that impact area residents.

“The residents of Silver Spring and the District share many of the same issues, and we thought this meeting would be a great way to discuss constituent concerns and answer questions,” said Councilmember Ervin. “I hope to see you there.”

This meeting is follow-up to a discussion Councilmembers Ervin and Bowser had recently when they were on a County Cable Montgomery (CCM) show called No Boundaries. In that show, Montgomery Councilmembers talk with public and private leaders from other jurisdictions about shared common issues. That show can be viewed on the internet at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2H1RBclAtQQ .

The primary topics of Monday’s meeting will include dog parks; green space; the 16th Street Traffic Circle; parking; development; and the Metropolitan Branch Trail.

To help answer questions and ensure follow-up to questions that are raised Monday, Maryland, Montgomery County and District agencies expected to be represented at the meeting include:

Montgomery County Department of Transportation
Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission
State Highway Administration
Montgomery County Police
Silver Spring Regional Services Center
District Department of Transportation
The D.C. Mayor’s Office

The Silver Spring Advisory Board has relocated its monthly meeting so members could attend this community meeting.
