April 2018 Around Town Journal

  April 2018 Around Town Journal The Town will be hosting in cooperation with McCaffery Interests, the developer for the proposed Solera Senior Living project, a Community Meeting at Town Hall on Thursday, May 3rd, beginning at 7 pm. The Architect for the project will present a re-designed concept plan for the north façade of the building, along with new drawings of the south façade (including day and evening views), and an update for the transition between the two existing historic buildings and the new structure. If you are unable to attend the May 3rd meeting, we will be posting the presentation on our website following the meeting. In addition, McCaffery Interests will be attending our May 14th Council Meeting for a Courtesy Review of the presentation. I strongly encourage all residents to stay engaged as we continue to navigate through multiple redevelopment projects (10540 Metropolitan Avenue; 10619 Connecticut Avenue; and 3906/3910 Knowles Avenue) within the Town that are at different stages of design. If you have any questions about the proposed development projects, please contact me at Mayor.Tracey@tok.md.gov. The Day of the Book Festival will be held on Sunday, April 22nd, 11 am—4 pm. Please join the Kensington Row Bookshop for live music, author readings, poetry, activities for adults and children, story tellers, and  . . . Books, Books, and more Books! This street festival lines Howard Avenue with local authors, book artists, publishers, booksellers, and literary groups to show, sell, and discuss their works. All activities are free. The 5th Annual Kensington Car Show will be held along Howard Avenue on Sunday, May 6th, 10 am—4 pm. Hosted by the Kensington Service Station, the Car Show will once again showcase both classic and current model vehicles, and provide live music, food, and fun for the entire family.
