To our members –
The meeting date for the Rock Creek Hills Citizens Association has been
changed to March 15 at 7:30 to accommodate any delays in the ongoing site
selection process for the BBC Cluster Middle School Number 2. Sandra van
Bochove has been keeping your apprised of these meetings, but I would
mention three specific matters here.
First, the Planning Board will be offered a chance to comment on the site selection before the Superintendent makes his recommendation.
Second, the County Council has had a staff member who is familiar with the issues in attendance at all of the Site Selection Advisory Committee meetings. We will advise the County Council of our concerns immediately after the Site Selection Advisory Committee makes its recommendation because at that point we will have most of the relevant information available.
Third, MCPS has taken the position that there are no barriers to the conversion of RCHP to a site for the school. At this stage we continue to pursue public open spaces issues at the state level through various channels pending a response.
Finally, as previously announced, the March 15 meeting will address the school site selection issues and the election of officers. If you wish to make any nominations, contact Sam Statland or Joe Rosenberg. Please call me if you have any interim questions or concerns.
