Planning Board Asks MCPS to Take a Harder Look at Lynnbrook.

Tonight the Montgomery County Planning Board conducted their "mandatory referral" review of the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) proposal to construct a middle school for the Bethesda - Chevy Chase cluster on the site of Rock Creek Hills Park.

The meeting lasted almost four hours, comprised of staff reports, public testimony, and deliberation.

The Planning Board commissioners voted to recommend that MCPS take a harder look at the former Lynnbrook Elementary School site (owned by MCPS) and the adjacent Lynnbrook Local Park, and that the Planning Board and the Board of Education should negotiate regarding use of the Lynnbrook Local Park site for this purpose.
