March 2018 Around Town Journal

  March 2018 Around Town Journal I am frequently asked about the old Huggins gas station property at 10619 Connecticut Avenue and if there are any future development plans for the site. I am happy to report that the property was recently sold to the Chuck Levin group, which also owns the adjacent property with 7-11. While the Levin group has yet to submit a long-term proposal for the property, they decided to provide two short-term lease agreements with Hawkins Produce and Cherner Brothers Auto. In speaking with Joe Hawkins, he is very excited about the opportunity and is looking forward to bringing produce back to Kensington. The Town’s Public Works Supervisor, Jason Swain, recently carved a new eagle at Earnest Memorial Park in honor of his niece, Katie. The Local Advisory Panel (LAP) for the Kensington Historic District is looking for two additional members. Although advisory in nature, the LAP’s contributions are vital to the work of the Commission and furtherance of history of Montgomery County’s communities. If you are interested in being appointed to the LAP, please contact me at Mayor.Tracey@tok.md.gov. The 2018-19 (FY19) Town Budget was introduced at our March 12th Council Meeting and the Public Hearing will be held on Monday, April 9th, beginning at 7 pm.
