In the past: few weeks children and parents of Cabin John have been turned away due to some misunderstan- dings. This problem was discussed at a recent Executive Committee meeting of the Citizens Association for the purpose of clarifying the rules and regulations regarding the community swim. First, the free swim program is run by the Citizens Association in cooperation with Palisades Fool. Second, the program is managed by volunteers whose job is to keep the swim under some control and to ensure the safety of the children. In order to accomplish this, certain rules have been agreed to that are in addition to the normal rules of the pool. Most importantly, there must be at least one supervising adult for every six children under 16. The sign-in list will consist of three columns: children under sixteen, non-supervising adults, and supervising adults. Supervising adults must be prep- ared to do at least $ hour “l-~guard duty” in either of the larger pools. We can- not continue to permit all interested Cabin Uoh~ children to swim at Palisades Fool unless enough adults volunteer to s supervise in a real way. COME AND TA~E YOUR TURN! Participants in the Community Swim must sign in and out everyday no matter wh—–en they leave .~- Failure to do both may result in your being turned away at a later swim. Some of the more important pool rules that have caused problems: I. Showers must be taken before entering the pool. ~e 2. No running or pushing in pool area. 3. No hanging on the ropes separating the pools. 4. Anyone wishing to pass the deep end test must have a Cabin John Adult Volunteer to help them and issue them a green patch. Green patches cost 25¢. Please make sure your children are aware of these rules!

Ig ‘ ‘ T}~ C 01Z,:~WJNITY PLAN – JUNE 1,973 During June, members of the Cabin John Community Plan staff met with several county organizations to present the Plan. One groupwith whom there were several meetings was the~ryland NationalCapitol Park and Planning Commission. As a result, a public hearing has been set up for September 13 at the Clara Barton School. The purpose of the public hearing is to hear the points of view of all • interestedparties on two groups of items. The first group relates to landuse and zoning, and includes the commercial zoning on the Tuohey tract, the residential zoning on the Polinger, Burgess, and certain small parcels of land. The second group of items relates t0transporta- tion such as the widening of Seven Locks Road, various proposed bike trails, Canal access, and several alternative proposals for the extension of Tomllnson Avenue. Upon evaluating the testimony givenat the public hearing, a sec- tionalmap amendment will be adopted for Cabin John. With this amendment, the full weight of the County offices will be behind the proposals made in the Cabin John Community Plan. In the next issue of the Village News, the specific proposed amandment to be presented a) the public hearing on September 13th will be published. The Maryland National Capitol Park and Planning Commission issued this statement with respect to implementa- tion of the Plan. “Accord special recognitionto the citizens of the area whose planning values, desires, and proposals are embodied in the final draft report, Cabin John Community Plan, publishes in March 1973. While it is not in itself an official document, the report is hereby commended to public agencies and officials which are r~sponsible for regu- latory activities or which pro- vide public facilities and ser- Vices affecting the area.” //////////////////////////////////////// On July 12 between the hours of 5,30 and 6,30 p.m., Dr. Eric Buchman recorded 27overflights by National Airport planes. , The lowest sound level from the planes registered at 80 decibals, many were 90 decibals, as recorded at his home on Arden Rd.

G leason as it appeared in the June 28 issue of the Bethesda/Che~-j Chase Journal. Q. Do you really thi~ citizens want to get involved in day-to-day affairs 6f their government? A. There are hundreds justwaiting for a chance to become involved with their neighborhood, in what it needs, what it should be like. ‘:Te just had a tremendous effort produced by the Cabin John citizens and boy, l’m telling you it just makes you stand there and marvel at the capabil- ities of people when they put their minds . in it. They’ve come out, they’ve surveyed, you know there are 1500 people there, middle to low income housing families,• and I sat with them yesterday when the government helped them; but didn’t dic, tate what thedecision should be. They surveyed every vacant area, undeveloped area and the~’ve come up with recommend- ations, not ~nly that, but on recreation, on schools, gn bicycle paths, things : like that. They had a health day out there and the community all came out and doctors and people explaining health, and they are going to do it again and that is ithe kind of community we ought to encourage.
