City Council Meeting Wednesday, May 22, 2024

Good Afternoon Ward 1,

I hope you had a great weekend. I attended the Montgomery County Older Girl Scout’s end of the year recognition where I was joined by Montgomery County Councilmember Laurie-Anne Sayles and Maryland State Delegate Sarah Wolek. I was touched that these wonderful female leaders attended our meaningful ceremony for teen Girl Scouts who have completed their Silver, Silver Trefoil, & Gold Awards. I was honored to have been the keynote speaker.

Two dates I hope you will join me for:

Takoma Park Police Department Ward One Community Meeting-June 11th from 7pm-9pm Azalea Room, Takoma Park Community Center on Maple Avenue

I have requested a meeting with Chief DeVaul and TPPD to discuss any concerns Ward 1 residents have about our community’s safety and police. I requested this meeting not due to any particular incident or trend in Ward 1 or Takoma Park. We continue to experience lower levels of crime compared to areas around us. I want to keep dialogue open between residents & police, and to ensure that all are well informed. If you aren’t able to attend, please send me your questions. 

Ward 1 Tie Dye Party-June 30th from 12pm-4pm 7102 Maple Avenue

Come create a tie dye to wear this summer, perhaps on the Fourth of July? I will provide dye and have volunteers to help. You will need to bring an article of clothing to dye. If you’re a pro and would like to help, please let me know. 

Council Meeting With Sha Administrator, William Pines

 1. Public Comments on SHA Related Matters (up to 30 minutes)

 2. Council Priorities Meeting with Maryland Department of Transportation SHA Administrator, William Pines (15-minute Council presentation; 20-minute presentation or comments by Administrator Pines; 30-minute Q&A and discussion)

In Ward 1, we have State Highways that are not within our jurisdiction to govern, including Philadelphia/Ethan Allen Avenue (410), Piney Branch Avenue (320), Carroll Avenue (195). SHA Administrator William Pines will join us for a discussion about issues were are experiencing. 

Work Session / Possible Voting Session

I am excited about the 2024 Flower Avenue Together Block Party on June 1st. Ward 5 business owner Amber Flynn has been leading the planning of this event and is joined by many other Ward 5 residents, including Councilmember Honzak, in making this celebration happen. I will be in attendance and support their request for the closure of Erie to make space for this event.
