Jennifer Loukissas started this petition to Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and

A breach of the democratic contract: illegal building on county-owned land.

The former Kensington Elementary School property at 10400 Detrick Ave is a community asset - with a soccer field, informal skate park, playground and green space with grass, picnic tables and trees.

In December 2018, the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County illegally paved over 10,000 square feet of green space to expand their parking lot. They did not obtain the required permits or consult with community members. When asked about it in a public forum, their Executive Director, Mr. Stacy Spann, described the space as a "pile of rocks". They paved right over the roots of nearby trees.

Please join me in calling for HOC to restore the community green space at the Old Kensington Elementary School. Remove the illegal parking lot, with care to safeguard the established tree, and restore the field for community use.
