Throwback Thursday!

Found an interesting 1981 Washington Post article describing the mega tunnel at Forest Glen! Funding was also an issue back then when most of the costs were being spent towards the Forest Glen station, thus threatening the Red line extension to Glenmont.

Forest Glen Metro Redevelopment Report Released

Finding Forest Glen presents the Forest Glen Redevelopment Report – A Community’s Voice. The report seeks to bring awareness to the possibility of developing the Forest Glen metro parking lot and describes how some of Forest Glen’s neighbors, residents and other community stakeholders have articulated some of their visions for the space and its overall use. The report includes a general overview and context of the neighborhood as well as a  summary of direct community feedback on the potential development based on comments collected during an open-invitation community gathering held on the evening of August 26, 2015. In addition, we’ve included some renderings and concepts of what the redevelopment could look like. Our hope is that this report will serve to inform and enhance the quality of on-going project discussions affecting the greater Forest Glen community.
