April 1981

~.’..illillillli’ilmllllilllilllll, ~, r~ ‘~’ SLAT~D~ FOR CLARA Thi~ June, St. AndreW’s Schools will move ~6ut ‘ of Cabin John ! to ia~ger quarters, to i be replaced by the ~,,: f0d~£h~nd fifth grade ‘~i:’:Of ~he Washington International School. TheWashington International School will also use the auditorium for special performances and the adjacent county playing fields for athletics. All that is pretty straightforward, but poses vexing problems for our community schools and post office, because their occupation of the building is at the discretion of the 9ND m April 1981 an option to renew in their own name through 1989. The County has made an oral commitment to t~eClara Barton Center that the occupancy of the building by the Post Office, Day Care Center, and Nursery School will be safeguarded by the County so long as the building is under lease. The implications of this are that if there is ~ntinu~p~e2 HELP VILLAGE NEWS IS BROKE’. ,~ ~ !~¢~ v “~ Help.’ The Village News, you r local voice, is going broke. We survive primarily on contributions. The Community Association contributes some from its dues and the proceeds from the Crab Feast. Several local merchants support us by purchasing advertising. But the bulk of our support has to come from you, our readers. There are 600 of you. If you each sent us $3.00/year, we would be solvent. Unfortunately, only about i0 percent, or 60 of you, have been remembering to do this. Brother, can you spare e costs about $150 to produce and n issues a year (we combine July/ ovember/December) that’s $1500. send us $5. That way, if half of we’ll still make ends meet.

Ms. Stevenson, a spokesman for Washington International School, says ‘£ha~ buying a building is a big step for a school• While such a move is not Out of the realm of p~:~sibility, it would only happen if the D.C.-based school developed substantial local support. Right now they are simply responding to a classroom overflow situation by making use of an available and suitable building. They are happy to coexist with the many community association and other activities that are held in the bu i iding. There are several implications here for Cabin John. We must work with our local schools to secure the County’s oral assurances about occupancy in writing as soon as possible. It is in our interest to keep a major tenant in the building. As a back-up, we should explore the possibility with the Day Care Center et al of their becoming major tenants (leasees) if the Washington International School if the building is ~sold in 1984 or ‘whenever, we should help the displaced tenants relocate somewhere in Cabin John.

IN CASE YOU MISSED THE LAST ASSOCIATION MEETING The March Citizen Association meeting was, ~gain, well attended. Several committees reported to the assembly. The land-use committee has been reviewing pertinent parts of the 1973 C.J. Development Plan; one motion was carried that other commit:tees should also review the plan and report: on the status of its implementation. Reports were also tendered on Rock Run Sewage Treatment Plant meeting, the encouraging endorsement of the aircraft scatter plan by the Coalition on Aircraft Problems, and the Memorial Day Parade (ideas and volunteers needed!). Judy Nigren, head of the Clara Barton Center for Children, expressed concern over the unclear position of the Center and the 3- and 4-year-old school in the lease negotiations ~etween St. Andrews and ~ new tenant, The Washington International School. IThis matter was referred to the education committee for further investigation. Jerry Pinsker, of the Montgomery County Bar Association, talked about the limited possibilities of municipal incorporation within the State of Maryland. Since the current apropos legislation was passed in 1954, the County Council has refused to approve any incorporation petitions presented to it. Mr. Pinsker felt this mood of rejection would continue, since the County does not want to surrender power or revenue to another jurisdiction within its bounds. A motion was carried to invite the Mayor of Glen Echo to the next AssOciation meeting to express his ideas on the advantage/ possibilities of incorporating.
