How to Get Involved with the Maple Avenue Connectivity Project

The Maple Avenue Connectivity Project is restarting, and we need your input to  make sure that this project is headed in the right direction. The purpose of the project is to redesign Maple Avenue, from the DC border to Sligo Creek, to re-prioritize the safety, comfort, and ease of pedestrians, bike riders, and transit users. 

Maple Avenue is used every day by thousands of residents, visitors, school students, seniors, worshippers, shoppers, and recreationalists. So, it’s important that the everyday perspectives of these community members is reflected in the design of this project. 

Over the next few months, the Planning Division will be conducting a series of activities around the community to gather input. This input will be used to revise the previously crafted preliminary designs and present a new version with a fuller range of perspectives represented. 

Here’s the planned schedule of events coming up:

9/28 @ 4:30-6:00pm: Takoma Park Child Development Center (310 Tulip Ave)

9/30 @ 7:00-8:30pm: TPES Welcome Back Night (7511 Holly Ave)

10/5 @ TBD: Youth Pop-Up (II) @ Teen Center (7500 Maple Ave)

10/6 @ 8:30-9:30am: Walk to School Day @ PBES (7510 Maple Ave)

More dates are being scheduled

Please check the project page regularly to confirm the details for these and any new events added to the schedule:

Additional rounds of feedback will be collected in the following (semifinal) stage of the design process, which will further refine the project. The project will also include feedback gathered during previous planning efforts, including for the first iteration of this project–the Maple Avenue Complete Street project–and the Takoma Park Minor Master Plan Amendment.
