Please join us on June 19 for a special meeting for representatives of condo associations within the Columbia Heights neighborhood to update our neighborhood conservation plan. The original plan was created over a decade ago and needs to reflect our current thoughts about infrastructure needs for our neighborhood.
Why update this plan? The conservation plan becomes the County’s blueprint for infrastructure planning, from sidewalks and street lights to upgrades to our park facilities to articulating whether we need new streets to connect areas of the neighborhood.
Condo associations have a vested interest in taking part in this charrette process. First, improving infrastructure improves property value in general. And some projects are particularly useful to specific associations that lie next to county facilities, like neighborhood parks. Finally, creating amenities in the communities benefits those who live here, making your condo more attractive to new buyers.
Please join us in this important discussion. Please RSVP if your association is able to send representatives to the meeting. Also feel free to forward this invitation to the correct representatives on your board.
