Wheaton Library furniture survey to begin this Sunday, November 19

Current progress on construction of
the new Wheaton Library and
Recreation Center
The long-delayed public input process on furniture for the future Wheaton Library and Recreation Center is now scheduled to launch this Sunday, November 19, 2017, at the Wheaton Interim Library. However, the community has not been properly notified of the event.

Kimblyn Persaud, President of the Wheaton Regional Park Neighborhood Association, has written to Montgomery County Department of General Services Director David Dise to remind him he had promised to post signs at the interim library, which is located in the ballroom of the Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad at 2400 Arcola Avenue. Those signs have never appeared.

Traffic at the interim library is down, Persaud reports. Therefore, she suggests the County quickly take additional steps to alert the community of the furniture test before the weekend. Her public information request from July 1, 2017 also remains to be fully responded to under the legal criteria set by the Maryland Public Information Act. Persaud is now requesting Dise comply with that MPIA request by this Friday, November 17.
