City Council votes to approve Takoma Junction development

City Council votes to approve Takoma Junction development; Co-op continues in mediation with developer
On July 25, a majority of the Takoma Park City Council approved the NDC Site Plan for development of the City-owned lot adjoining the TPSS Co-op. The Council’s vote now allows NDC to seek further approvals from Montgomery County and the Maryland State Highway Administration. The issue of whether the development makes reasonable accommodations for the Co-op’s operational needs remains open, however; and the Co-op continues in mediation with NDC and the City. The City Council will meet again to discuss the issue of reasonable accommodations on September 19. We urge you to attend.

We are grateful to our members and shoppers for your continuing support throughout this challenging time — through your many letters, comments at City Council meetings and on social media, and conversations throughout our community.  We thank you for your valuable feedback, which will help guide us in the future.

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

Thank you again for your support.
