SaveWestbard! Comment on the EquityOne Sketch Plan NOW!

Without your involvement the plan will:

  • Add approximately 1,400 NEW residential units to the Westbard Sector, which is more than Springfield (650 units) plus Sumner (550 units), combined; almost all of the new units will be built on Westbard Avenue.

  • Dramatically increase traffic by adding thousands of people without expanding area roads.

  • Further tax our already overcrowded schools.

  • Crowd out local retailers and small businesses.

 Let's improve the Westwood Shopping Center, and the surrounding area, without destroying the character of our community!

Contact the Planning Board and the Montgomery County Council about EquityOne's Sketch Plan for the re-development of the shopping center, and the surrounding area!

Thank you for voicing your concerns about the redevelopment of the Westbard Sector, especially regarding the Sketch Plan which is now on file with the Montgomery Planning Department.

We need your help. Here's how:  

  • Email, write and call the Planning Board (send emails to john.marcolin@montgomeryplanning.org) and tell them that you still oppose the current redevelopment plan, and that the Sketch Plan confirms that the Westbard Sector is ear-marked for a huge density dump, and that green space is severely limited and inadequate.
  • Support term limits on the Novemeber ballot:  Since the Council blithely ignores citizen concerns, we must help them out the door, and elect others to represent us.
  • Ask your friends and neighbors to join you in opposing the Sketch Plan, and the corresponding density dump in the Westbard Sector. Contact the Planning Board and the Montgomery County Council at www.SaveWestbard.org or just FORWARD THIS EMAIL right now.
  • Tell those who don't use email what is at stake and how to write. Many of your neighbors are unaware.
  • Like us on Facebook at SaveWestbard and invite your friends and neighbors to like us, too!
