Championship Swim Meet on Saturday | Heavy Parking

Hello Neighbors,

The Washingtonian Woods Waves swim season comes to an end this Saturday at the MCSL Division N Championship Meet — also known as ‘Divisionals’.  This meet features all 5 teams from N Division swimming at the same pool for the final meet of the season.

This year the Divisionals meet will be held at Washingtonian Woods.

The purpose of this email is to inform the neighborhood that due to this meet, numerous additional cars will be in the neighborhood between the hours of 7AM and 1PM, Saturday, July 18th.  The swimmers and families of all 5 teams have already been informed avoid parking in any “Reserved” spaces in the Vistas parking lot, and to preferably park in any legal spots along Midsummer Drive or Upshire Circle.  The team plans to have parking lot attendants on hand to help control parking as best is as possible.

We appreciate both your support and understanding.  And, feel free to come cheer on the Waves!

Thank you,
Glenn Watts
Board of Directors, Washingtonian Woods HOA

CPSC Ad Hoc Committee
The Gaithersburg City Council has officially created the Ad Hoc Committee for the former Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) site in our neighborhood.  If you are interested in serving on this committee to help plan the new 10-acre park, please submit your application to City Hall by June 30, 2015.  At least one slot is specifically designated for a WW resident.

The demolition of most of the existing buildings on the site will occur in late summer or fall. The City is hosting a community meeting for residents adjacent to the site on June 23 to explain the demolition process, what to expect, and the measures being taken to minimize noise, dust, and other nuisances.  Development of the park amenities within the site is going to be a deliberate multi-year process.  The recently passed capital budget allocates $3 million and anticipates it will cost around $6 million in total over the next few years.

More details on the Committee and how to submit your application can be found here on the City of Gaithersburg web site.  This is a great opportunity for members of our community to engage with the City and directly influence the use of this land that borders our neighborhood.

Architectural Guidelines
Thank you to all neighbors who submitted public comment on the Draft Architectural Guidelines and Change Application.  The Architectural Review Committee will be updating and incorporating feedback into the draft documents over the coming weeks.  The revised documents will be shared with the community prior to being voted on by the Board.

Kidical Mass Bike Ride Coming to Washingtonian Woods
Kidical Mass Gaithersburg’s June Social ride will be coming to Washingtonian Woods on Saturday, June 13th.  The group will meet at the entrance to the CPSC site at 10901 Darnestown Road at 10 am and will ride on shared used paths and low traffic level streets through Washingtonian Woods.  The ride will end at Washingtonian Woods Park at 341 Upshire Circle.  All are welcome to join.  Click here to learn more about Kidical Mass and the Washingtonian Woods ride.
