Welcome to the home page of the Coalition for the Fair Redevelopment of Wheaton!
The Coalition is a collection of nonprofit organizations, Wheaton small business owners, and Montgomery County residents that seek to ensure that the existing Wheaton community in Maryland is able to benefit from the area’s proposed redevelopment.
The Coalition believes in the promise of redevelopment and the possibility of strengthening Wheaton’s local economy into the future. However, we don’t want Wheaton’s strengths — its people of diverse incomes and cultures, its small businesses, and its broad array of housing options to accommodate individuals and families alike — to be sacrificed in the process.
A final redevelopment agreement for Wheaton – potentially subsidized by millions of dollars of public taxpayer money — could be signed as early as March 2012.
Do you believe Wheaton deserves more than just what it has coming to it?
Do you believe developer B.F. Saul should work with Montgomery County officials to jointly articulate clear community benefits in return for a huge public subsidy?
Do you believe the community’s priorities should be addressed before a final redevelopment agreement is signed?
If so, this is the place for you. Explore the website and learn how you can help us achieve a stronger Wheaton!
