Claudia Kousoulas, a land use planner for Montgomery County for more than 20 years, is also a freelance food writer and has put together a cookbook about the County’s 93,000-acre Agricultural Reserve.
Bread & Beauty is really a way to bring land use planning right to the kitchen table. The Ag Reserve was set aside more than 40 years ago, but is a vital source of jobs, local food, clean air and water, history, and recreation.
And while this may seem far removed from the urbanizing issues we face in the down-County, it really is all connected. Good planning decisions create a balance of both landscapes and opportunities.
The book promises to be really beautiful, with profiles of farmers and producers, essays about rural issues, stories about County history, photographs, and recipes. You can get a preview on their website here.
The County Council’s Transportation Committee voted 2-1 (Berliner, Hucker -YES, Floreen – NO) to approve funding for the Forest Glen 2nd entrance with the bulk of the $20 million being available FY21 and construction completed in FY25.
This is good news for Forest Glen and with the final budget vote on March 20th – let your County Councilmembers know that you support this recommendation!
Here is the video discussion of the vote
After much support from the community, it appears the County Council is considering the funding of the Forest Glen East metro entrance!
The final vote will be on March 8, 2018 at the County Council in Rockville.
Please contact us at FindingForestGlen@gmail.com if you are interested in attending and helping the final efforts!
Last night we had an amazing turnout supporting the funding of the Forest Glen East metro entrance.
This entrance will not only provide better pedestrian safety to our neighborhood but will also bring much needed amenities to our area.
Please contact the County Council’s office today to let them know you want this project funded!
Do you want a 2nd metro entrance on the East side of Forest Glen? We have an opportunity this year to get funding and WE NEED YOUR HELP.
