City Council Has Approved the NDC Site Plan


Dear TPSS Co-op Member-Owner,

As you may know, despite our request that the City Council postpone its vote until the conclusion of our mediation with NDC, the Council approved the NDC Site Plan for developing the lot adjoining the TPSS Co-op.

Thank you very much for the support you have shown for the Co-op during this challenging time. In your many letters, comments at City Council meetings and on social media, and in conversations throughout our community, the support for the Co-op has been extraordinary. Throughout this time of heightened member engagement, we have received valuable feedback which will help to guide us in the future.

The Board met Thursday night. We continue the mediated discussions with the developer in good faith and hope these talks will continue to address our serious concerns about store operations, especially deliveries and parking, during and after construction.

We hope that this moment in TPSS Co-op history will be seen as a turning point—regardless of how we move forward—when members renewed their commitment and engagement with their store, and a strong new chapter was begun.

Buoyed by your support, the TPSS Board of Representatives will tackle the work ahead with a continued commitment to TPSS members, workers, our local suppliers, and our Takoma Park neighbors.

Thank you so very much!

TPSS Board of Representatives
Robert Anderson, Vice President
Susan Cho
Diane Curran
Julia Eddy, Secretary
Fred Feinstein
Adam Frank, Treasurer

Co-op surprised by council recall effort
Friday, July 20 2018



The Co-op was surprised by efforts to recall city council members and is not taking any part in it. We are focused on our operations and we are engaged in mediation.

Representatives of the TPSS Co-op, Neighborhood Development Company, and the City of Takoma Park met this morning with the selected mediator, Daniel Dozier, for the first mediation session with all parties present. The discussions, lasting about three and half hours, were productive. There are many issues to consider and attempt to work out, and discussions will continue next week when the parties reconvene on Monday evening.

All parties asserted their commitment to the mediation process and agreed to keep the content of discussions confidential until the process concludes.

Thanks for supporting YOUR community food store!
