Silver Spring Downtown and Adjacent Communities Plan Equitable Engagement

Equitable Engagement

If you live, work or play in Silver Spring, you now have a unique opportunity to shape the future of your community. Planners are seeking your ideas, concerns and comments through a series of coordinated engagement efforts that are divided into four phases: listening, visioning, refining and sharing. Your feedback will help us craft the recommendations for the plan that will guide Silver Spring in the decades to come.

We are currently in the Visioning Phase! There are many ways to participate; events will be added here throughout the Visioning Phase. Sign up for our eLetter to receive updates when new engagement opportunities are posted.
