Commemoration Commission Public Hearing – Learn about the new programs and comment

The Takoma Park Commemoration Commission will hold a public hearing on January 12, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Community Center Auditorium regarding the Commission’s proposed five personal recognition programs. The Commission proposes to begin accepting applications for these new programs in February 2016. The proposed personal recognition programs include 1) an existing bench and new commemorative plaque program, 2) an existing tree and new commemorative plaque program, 3) a new tree and commemorative plaque program, 4) a new bench and commemorative plaque program, and 5) an honor gift tree program. The eligibility and cost requirements for each program are posted for review:

The Commemoration Commission was established in November 2014 by the Takoma Park City Council. The legislation established three recognition levels to be administered by the Commission: 1) a Citywide Recognition program, 2) a Neighborhood/Local Recognition program, and 3) a Personal Recognition program. The January 12 hearing will present the Personal Recognition programs proposed by the Commission. Residents who wish to learn more about the new programs and comment on the programs can sign up to testify at the hearing.
