Please note a revised (later) start time by the Montgomery County Parks to the below meeting.
Montgomery Parks has recently posted notification of an upcoming closure of the southern entrance (from Batchellors Forest Rd) into Olney Manor Recreational Park. The public’s concern on the decision has resulted in Montgomery Parks coordinating a forum to better summarize the matter and allow the neighbors to voice their concerns. Following up on the community request, Montgomery Parks would like to announce a community meeting to review the decision and allow public comments. Please mark your calendars to attend the following:Community Meeting Olney Manor Recreational Park- Review Southern Entrance Closure Wednesday, June 22, 2016 7:30pm – 9:00pm Washington Christian Academy 16227 Batchellors Forest Road Olney, MD 20832
Montgomery Parks has delayed the gate closure until the community has had an opportunity to solicit their comments regarding the gate closure. They are scheduling the attendance of Montgomery Parks Planning staff as well as Maryland’s State Highway Administration and Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation representatives to help review the history of the development of Batchellors Forest Road and the current developments. The public will be given an opportunity to comment and ask questions. All questions and comments will be reviewed and considered before any future decisions are rendered on the permanent closure. If you would like to attend on behalf of an organization or community group, please confirm via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
