Bring Retail to Clarksburg

Tired of the extra travel for groceries and essentials?  Do you wish you could shop for daily conveniences a little closer to home?  

The Clarksburg Village/Arora Hills Retail Site Plan is approved.  This site plan contains a full-size grocery story, banks, pharmacy, gas, and plenty of other of space for restaurants and other convenience retail.

The current zoning and site plan conditions of approval prohibit the start of the Clarksburg Village/Arora Hills retail until 89,000 square feet of retail in Town Center is established.  This restriction was identified in 1994, well before current Clarksburg conditions.  It is not known when retail in Town Center retail will start.  

 Our re-zoning case will be heard by the Montgomery County Hearing Examiner on Monday, November 29, 2010.  In addition to this petition, we are looking for anecdotes from residents about why they support the retail re-zoning.  This information will help paint a picture of how lack of retail in Clarksburg impacts Clarksburg residents.  To that end, please consider taking five minutes on or before November 29 to send an email of support to the Hearing Examiner at:

In this email, indicate your address, that you support the re-zoning of the Arora Hills/Clarksburg Village retail, and any personal comments that you'd like to share.  If you can scan and sign the email, please do so.  If not, please send your email without a signature...

Thank you all for your support!  With your help, we can bring retail to Clarksburg - sooner versus later.

What is with the neo-liberals, businesses are going away from montgomery county and maryland. Nothing is being done on this side of the river. Build a highway and bridge over potomac and see businesses streaming over to montgomery county because they have better access to airport and the city.
