May 3, 2018 PHCA Meeting @ SSIMS Middle School

Park Hills neighbors,

Thank you again to Joe Pospisil, Planning Specialist for the county’s Dept. of Transportation, for taking time last week to inform residents about the permit parking process in light of our proximity to the Purple Line transitway.  You may direct any follow-up questions or concerns to

I saw a number of my neighbors at last night’s meeting for the Silver Spring CAT Team hosted by the Maryland Transit Administration and the Purple Line Transit Partners – including Alan Bowser, Tina Slater, Mary Clive, Darian Unger, Erin Johannson, and Karen Roper – along with members of the Silver Spring Library Advisory Committee, Julio Cerόn from Councilmember Hucker’s office and Austin Morris from Senator Van Hollen’s office.  The slide show presentation outlined Purple Line-related construction on Wayne Avenue planned for 2018 and beyond.  I will post that file later this week when it is made publicly available.

In the meantime, I wanted to bring your attention to MTA’s slide show presented at last May’s joint PHCA/SOECA meeting in the Civic Center – see the attached PDF file.  This presentation has also been posted on the PHCA website in the Purple Line section (at the top of the page).  I received this file from MTA’s Public Outreach person, Joy Hamilton, who recently left this position after many years of dedicated service – we will certainly miss Joy.

I will send around last night’s PowerPoint file and post it to the website as soon as it is available.
