Planning and Community Development Wants Your Input on Public Space


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. This plan will be an update to the City’s 1994 Open Space Plan (amended in 1999).

Public space includes:

  • parks, playgrounds and playing fields
  • plazas and places to gather like the Gazebo
  • natural spaces and wooded areas like Sligo Creek and Long Branch stream valley parks
  • streets that may be used for alternative activities like outdoor cafe seating or bike lanes

We would really like your feedback. Tell the City your thoughts on public space in Takoma Park by responding to this short survey.
