Public Space Management Plan

About the Public Space Management Plan

The purpose of this project is to develop a Public Space Management Plan to provide a vision, goals, and guidance on how public space will be used and maintained in Takoma Park.

Current Status

After a number of logistical challenges were encountered going into the final week of project preparation, and for the sake of crafting a stronger final product, Planning Division staff decided to postpone the vote on the Public Space Management Plan.  The delay pushes the timeline past the final City Council meeting for 2022, on October 26, which means that the Plan, in its final form, will go before the new Council in Summer 2023 for approval.

Public Space Community Workshop on June 27th, 2022.
