Planners will present “alternative concepts” to comments at a March 1 Design Workshop during their next community meeting as part of the Bethesda Downtown Plan.
The meeting is set for Thursday, April 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane).
The Planning Department also put out a new, one-minute video describing why residents should take part in the process.
“What do you want Downtown Bethesda to look like for the next twenty years and beyond,” asks the video, which points to transportation, green space, arts, entertainment and development as areas where feedback could help create a better Downtown Bethesda Sector Plan.
The Department is looking to get more participation out of millennials, who make up 40 percent of the downtown area’s population but have been mostly absent from previous community events.
