Leggett Seeks Applicants for Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board

County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill six vacancies on the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board.

 

The Board is composed of 18 residents and/or business persons of communities in the Silver Spring/Takoma Park area. Applicants must work or reside within the Silver Spring Regional Center's service boundaries. The boundaries include: 495 south of the Beltway (exception: all Four Corners neighborhoods north of the Beltway are included); Rock Creek park to the west; the District of Columbia line to the south; and the Prince George’s County line to the east. Homeowners and apartment dwellers are invited to apply in order to establish a balanced representation.

 

The Board acts as a liaison between the Silver Spring communities and the county government by identifying neighborhood and business concerns and making recommendations to county officials. It advises the Silver Spring Regional Services Center Director on area needs and priorities such as economic development, transportation, housing, education, human services, and downtown redevelopment.

 

Members serve three year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. Meetings are usually held the second Monday evening of each month at various locations in Silver Spring. Members are also asked to serve on a subcommittee.

 

Applicants of diverse backgrounds, professions, gender, geography, disability and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. An application, consisting of a brief cover letter and resume, should be sent by mail to County Executive Isiah Leggett, 101 Monroe Street, 2nd Floor, Rockville, MD  20850, or by email to countyexecutive.boards@montgomerycountymd.gov. Home and employment addresses, as well as contact phone numbers and email addresses should be included. If appropriate, applicants should indicate the position for which they are applying. The deadline for application is March 29, 2013.

 

Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Leggett’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of those selected for appointment are made public as part of the confirmation process.
