Town Center Summit scheduled for April 21, 7pm at VisArts

The Town Center Action Team is planning a very special event on April 21; a Town Center Summit, from 7 to 9 PM in the VisArts second floor exhibit hall.

Join us for a discussion of the successes, challenges, and prospects of Rockville Town Square and nearby Town Center development, and how we can facilitate and encourage improvements in the short and long term. The meeting will include representatives from all of the interests that will influence the future of our Town Center - residents, merchants, property owners, and managers who live and work in Town Square, and also interested Rockville citizens. Presenters include City Staff, Federal Realty Investment Trust, Ross Danac, CIM Group, JBG, VisArts, Rockville Economic Development Incorporated, Peerless Rockville, and others.

The first part of the summit will be on the just completed Town Square including how to make the best of the current economic environment. The second part of the meeting will look forward to Town Center north of Beall Avenue (across the street from Town Square), to understand what it would take to develop it and how it can best complement and enhance Town Square.

The Town Center Action Team hopes to see you there!
