Planners suggest the Rock Creek Pool property should be designated as a possible site for a future school.
Today Pool President Gretchen Ekstrom delivered over 420 signatures on 350 postcards from pool members to the planning board clearly stating that pool members have no interest in selling the Rock Creek Pool property now or in the foreseeable future. As we told you in last fall, the draft Greater Lyttonsville Sector Plan singles out Rock Creek Pool as the only named possible neighborhood site for a future school. We believe mentioning Rock Creek Pool as a potential school site is inappropriate and the reference should be removed from the Sector Plan.
What can you do? Write County planners! Send an email to email@example.com.County planners will continue to accept written testimony for two more weeks (until Feb. 25). Read what your fellow pool members have already written here.
Gretchen’s testimony on behalf of the Pool Board is below.
Planners suggest Rock Creek Pool could be considered a site for a pool if MCPS exhausts all other options. We object.
Dear Rock Creek Pool community,
As some of you are aware, the Planning Department has released their draft of the Greater Lyttonsville Sector Plan. Under that Plan, there will be a number of changes coming to our community. I encourage you to read the Plan and join your neighbors in crafting a response that fits the needs of the neighborhood or writing to the Planning Board yourself. The Plan impacts Rosemary Hills, Lyttonsville, and ROCK CREEK FOREST.
One short paragraph in the Plan suggests that MCPS should consider the Rock Creek Pool property for a future school site. Read more →
