Susan Volt has done Some research with Mr. Carol Harman of the county library s~stem, A ~ room stocked with a chan~in~ supply ~ of books, ~ mov- ies, magazines and records could be available for senior citizens drop-in daily, perhaps adjacent to the Post office. The Department Of Recreation would be willing, should the ~ desire arise, to organize a Senior Citizens Club. The Department of Recreation would also be willing to staff and plan an every other Friday night Teen Center for dropplng-in, from 7,30-i0,00 p.m., for 7th through 12th graders and have submitted letters to Dr. ~ Elseroad with their plans. Fran Nilson is working on a reference or resource room to be available for youngsters doin~ their homework an d needing ~’ to look up something not: available at home Fran is also tracin~ the whereabouts of ~’ books from~the Clara Barton School library that did not end up in the Bannockburn School library. Mr. Mannes, of the Bethesda Boys Club, was present to outline future uses by the Boys Club of the facilities and possible offerings for our younger citizens. This Boys Club is manned almost exclusively by volunteers and storage would be helpful at Clara Barton and possibly future office space. ~th to IOth ~rade boys are now served eventually this Boys Club hopes to serve girls• Day Care, like all other requests and ~lans for uses of the building, now waits on decisions to be made by the Superintendent of Schools • : One thing has been decided for sure and that is the followln~ schedule of class ° offerln~s from Adult Education of Montgome~y~ ~, County Public Schools beginning in January, Ready for a Job – ~esday January?, IO a.m. to noon Thursday Jan~, q.noon Tuesdays 7,30 to 9,30 p.m. *G.E.D.

The Village News received two different articles on downzoning this month, and both articles-are presented here side-by.side for :. your ease in Comparison. A CALL TO THg Rk~L CIT1ZEN~tOF CABIN JOHN On (k;tober 1 of this year, the County Council voted in resolution ~7-1962 to change the zonin~ status of the Quick Food Shop and the Gallery on MacArthur Blvd. from commercial to residential• In addit- ion it recommends similar action for the Alpine .Veterinary Hospital. These . properties are now ciassif~ed as non,coi~orming uses, Their operations are severely restricted in order to event- ually close them down. As an example, severe damage to either building would, under law,. prohibit the owner to repair the structure. How relevant this is to all of us was demonstrated two weeks ago when vandals set fire to the Quick Food Sh~. If severe damage had resulted, the owner would have been denied permission to reopen his business, and Cabin John would have been without a store today, In addition the owners who have improved their bulidin~s as places of business now must sell their properties as private residenceS. The financial loss they would incur must be suffered by the owners alone as there is no pro- vision under .Maryland law for any com- Pensation from the State. I cannot believe that the citizens of Cabin John really’support this kind of action. Yet it is the Cabin John Citizens Association, an organization Which,p’urPorts to speak for all of us, wh~c~ has been the prime motivator Of this zoning change. !; ~There is a petition being circula- ted to restore the. Quick Fo~ Sho~ and the Galle_r~ to their commercial Status. ;.~th~than twoweeks of circulation it has collected over 200 signatures f~om the 539 homes in Cabin John. If you feel that these establishments have served the community well, and that their Use has been both reasonable and proper, then please come to the Quick Food Shop, read and sign the petition. However, which is more important, please attend the next Citizens Associa- t i,~ meetin~ in January and confront those ~nd–{viduals •responsible f0r this ‘action, Only through ‘the”Strength of your atten- dance can we hope to rostore the Citizens Association to the real citizens of Cabin John.

For years the Boulevard has needed resurfacing. But improvement, when it finally, came, ,resulted not only in the roads being resurfaced, but in its being< widened and straightened as well• The imp!ications of: this are dis- heartening for Cabin John residents – we can now expect an enormous .increase in the amount of traffic on MacArthur Blvd. Not only will there be more cars, but they will be traveling much faster• The gentle curves and narrow lanes, which have tended to restrict the spee d of auto. mobiles, Rave been widened and straightened’ to actually encoura~ a more intensive use. The condition of the road now makes it an attractive c0m~uter route for people in Potomac and outlying Communities to zoom through the heart of Cabin John on their way to~ and from Washington. Why .: wasn’t another lane added to the GW Park- way where that kind of traffic belongs? The surface of MacArthur Blvd. could have been repaired, but the character of the~road need not have been destroyed. Anyone who remembers River Road as it once was cannow add MacArthur Blvd. to the scrapbook. T~at does this mean to those people in Cabin John who live along the Blvd.?: ~,~at are the implications to our children, pets, and wildlife who are use d to cros- sing MacArthur Blvd. with a casual glance? . Once again the Citizens Association’ has acted irresponsibly in endorsing this project. They never understood how a road can act as a focal point for the civic llfe of a community, and not merely as a device for getting from one place to another as quickly as possible• It is the Citizens Association who now must answer to the co~s,unity for the role they have played in the birth of a highway and the death of a Boulevard.
