Silver Spring – The Montgomery Planning Board, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), will conduct their April Planning Board meetings solely online while Planning Department Headquarters (8787 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, MD) is closed to the public due to the COVID-19 virus situation. Community members can listen live either online or via phone; provide written testimony on agenda items; or sign up to testify live to the Board on specific agenda items via phone during the meeting. Please read the new rules for testifying under this format.
