Montgomery College to Host Public Meeting Jan. 24 on
Takoma Park Campus Expansion Project

(Takoma Park, Maryland) — Montgomery College will host a public meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 24, to provide an update on the Takoma Park Campus expansion project scope and timeline. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Commons Building (Bliss Room) of the Takoma Park Campus, 7600 Takoma Avenue, Takoma Park.

The College will begin construction next year on a phased, three-building expansion project that will expand the campus into south Silver Spring, with a pedestrian overpass connecting the existing Takoma Park to newly acquired college property along Georgia Avenue. Among the new additions to the campus will be:

  • A Student Services building on Fenton Street;
  • A 500-seat Cultural Arts Center, adjacent to Jesup Blair Park;
  • A Health Sciences and Continuing Education building on Georgia Avenue; and
  • A new pedestrian bridge that will link the new buildings to the existing campus and connect nearby Takoma Park neighborhoods to Jesup Blair Park.

For more information on the January 24 informational meeting, call Chahnez McRae at 240-567-7374
