Planning Board Rejects Ashton Meeting Place Plan

On Thursday, June 28, the Montgomery County Planning Board rejected the proposed plan for Ashton Meeting Place, citing issues with parking in residential zones and noncompliance with the Sandy Spring⁄Ashton Master Plan.  While we were obviously disappointed with this outcome, we will take direction offered by the Planning Board to craft a new plan.  Our new plan will be submitted to the planning board as soon as possible. 

Thanks to our many supporters who made it a priority to attend the hearing on the 28th.  Proponents of the plan were well-represented in the audience, which was greatly appreciated.  Please check in regularly to this web site for updates as they occur.
