For many years, our community has been asking to build a community center in north College Park. Thanks to many of your advocacy, the MNCPPC finally agreed to fund a feasibility study for the proposed center. The project team engaged the residents, looked into a few sites in north College Park, and shortlisted two locations – one at the Hollywood Shopping Plaza and the other at Hollywood Park near the Metro. Based on the community’s input, the team adjusted the conceptual design of these sites and presented these designs at their table at College Park Day yesterday. Additionally, they will hold a virtual community meeting via Zoom tomorrow at 6 pm and discuss these designs in more detail. We’re asking you for two specific help.
(a) Please attend the virtual community meeting at 6 pm tomorrow, Monday, October 17 and give your input.

Now that the feasibility study of the proposed north College Park Community Center is coming to an end, it’s time for us to advocate for funding in M-NCPPC’s new budget so that the project can go through the final design and construction. Please attend this Tuesday’s virtual Public Hearing at 7 pm to make that happen. To speak at the hearing, please register before noon tomorrow, Monday, at: https://www.mncppc.org/FormCenter/Planning-Board-6/Prince-Georges-County-Planning-Board-Vir-350
