Montgomery Parks has a beautiful park planned for the Willett Branch in the Westbard Sector. The residents of the Housing Opportunity Commission’s Westwood Tower Apartments will be big winners with this park, enjoying the benefits of nature, a sparkling restored creek, pedestrian trails that connect to the Capital Crescent Trail and lush green woods that will serve as their backyard and playground for their children.
Unfortunately, the current plan calls for a large parking garage next to the Westwood Tower Apartments, right in the Willett Branch stream buffer and on the site of an old African American cemetery. Our friends at the Little Falls Watershed Alliance are tracking the Westbard plan and ask you to lend your voice–write a letter asking Montgomery Planning to keep the parking garage out of the stream buffer!
