Olney Manor Park Gate Closing Meeting

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.
