Council to Address Plans for Wheaton Library, Community Center
The Montgomery County Council will hold a worksession on County Executive Ike Leggett’s proposed plan to build a new Wheaton Library and Community Recreation Center during their regular session meeting on April 1.
The plan is part of the Executive’s recommended Fiscal Years 2015-20 Capital Improvements Program.
Last week, the Council voted against placing an historic designation on the existing Wheaton Community Center, formerly known as the Youth Center.
The current building has fallen into a state of disrepair and an historic designation would have led to restoring the building.
The proposed new community center and library complex is a part of the redevelopment of Wheaton. The proposed plan also would include the relocated Gilchrist Center.
Wheaton Library was opened in 1960 and renovated in 1985.
The discussion will begin around 10 a.m. in the third floor hearing room of the Council Office Building and will be streamed live here.
