Silver Spring News 'N Notes

I've been out-of-town recently, so I haven't been able to keep abreast of the most recent goings on in Silver Spring, but here are a few items of interest:

- MoCo wants to use the empty apartments near Blair High School Silver Spring International Middle School to house homeless people with mental and drug problems. I know I used to pass by that building quite frequently as a kid, as it was between Ertter's and Fairway Pharmacy (anyone remember that place?). They had to expect that this idea was going to go over real well. Besides the school issue, people are quite conscious of the potential effect on property values, but they can't use that as their justification publicly, of course.
I do think this is an excellent idea:

Alan Bowser, a lawyer who has lived in the neighborhood for 12 years, said he would rather see the building turned into condominiums that teachers, police officers, firefighters and other county employees could afford.
How about school bus drivers, many of whom now have to commute from West Virginia?

UPDATE: Here's the official proposal from the MoCo Housing Opportunities Commission.

- The Purple Line from Silver Spring to Bethesda may be getting the shaft (again) in favor of a Metro line to BWI if some Maryland officials get their way.

- The Silver Spring Historical Society will be conducting their walking tour of Downtown Silver Spring on Saturday, May 6th:
Tour participants will meet "under the clock" at the 1938 Silver Spring Shopping Center, located on the corner of Georgia Avenue and Colesville Road (between Red Lobster and Romano's Macaroni Grill). The tour will conclude around noon at the historic 1945 Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Station, 8100 Georgia Avenue, which will be open for visitation until 3:00 p.m.

Reservations are NOT required and the tour will be conducted rain or shine. For more information, contact the SSHS at 301.537.1253 or email sshistory@yahoo.com
