Mayor and Council seek permission to demolish Rockville home for parking lot
Although the area is historic for being one of the first subdivisions in Montgomery County available for purchase by African-Americans, the home itself is on a parcel that was created in 1976, 313 1/2 Frederick Avenue. Staff liaison Sheila Bashiri is recommending against historic designation.
For my part, having attended a number of events and meetings at the community center, I can attest that additional parking spaces are desperately needed at this facility.
