Green Streets Community Walk August 8th

Learn more about components of the Department of Environmental Protection’s and Transportation’s Green Streets program proposed for our neighborhood on a Community Walk, Thursday, August 8th from 6 to 8 p.m. starting at Lanark Way and Portland Road.

The program’s Roadway Low Impact Development (LID) designs including rain gardens, bioretention gardens, curb extensions, bioswales, tree box filters, permeable parking pads, and pavement removal are an effort to reduce and filter rainfall and pollutants that wash off surface areas (storm water runoff) into nearby Sligo Creek.

For more information about the Green Streets’ project go to www.montgomerycountymd.gov/restorationprojects  and click on Dennis Avenue Low Impact Design Project.

And for more information about the walk itself on August 8th, contact Jennifer St. John at 240-777-7740 or jennifer.st.john@montgomerycountymd.gov
