About the 6450 New Hampshire Avenue Site Improvements
Using Maryland DHCD Community Legacy Program funds as an incentive, the City partnered with the property owner of 6450 New Hampshire Avenue to incorporate green site features as part of the development of a two-story commercial building. The plan included a new sidewalk connecting New Hampshire Avenue to Sligo Mill Road, permeable pavers in the parking lot, and solar panels on the roof.
Current Project Status
Due to project delays, the construction of the building did not occur before the expiration of the grant funds from the Maryland Community Legacy grant.
