Reconsidering the Bylaws
Inside:
I
n February, a committee was formed to review and
propose changes to the Civic Association’s bylaws.
Committee members are Civic Association President
Vince Bradley, Elizabeth Managan, Kathryn Toffenetti, and Ed Wilhelm. The bylaws were last updated
in 2011, but a few years of use has shown that some
requirements were not practical (and not followed) and
some were inefficient or unnecessarily complicated.
One set of changes has already been put into place
after a vote at the March meeting: The officer’s election date has been changed from January to September, with all officers’ terms starting in January. A fall
election should avoid the weather problems that, in the
last two years, have postponed elections from January
to February.
Bylaw committee members have raised three issues
that could lead to major changes to the bylaws: how
to define a “member” (by individual? by household?
If the latter, how should “household” be defined?);
whether board membership should be restricted to
elected officers instead of a mix of elected officials
and committee chairs (currently there are 4 officer
positions and 4 committee chair positions, though in
recent years not all the committee chair positions have
been filled); and whether the term limits for officers
should be extended beyond the current two years.
Other potential changes, mostly to allow for more
flexibility and efficiency, should be uncontroversial.
All proposed changes, however, would be presented
to the membership at upcoming meetings (and also
distributed via the association’s website, listserv, or
other means) before a vote on whether to adopt them.
All dues-paying members will have the right to vote
on the bylaws.

Delegate Waldstreicher Gives
Latest News at May Meeting
D
elegate Waldstreicher gave an update on the latest
happenings in the Maryland legislature — principally about the recent budget passing with no tax increases and minimal spending cuts. A few highlights:
record funds for education, especially new school construction, to deal with severe overcrowding in public
schools in Montgomery County (and elsewhere); and
criminal justice reform passed in a strongly bipartisan
bill that decriminalizes small amounts of marijuana
and reinvests the prison cost savings to treatment.
Also, he said the long-awaited purple line, which
will be run under Maryland Transportation Authority
(MTA), starts construction later this year and the first
segment is due to open in 2019. We then had a lively
Q&A session and discussion, mostly on road and
transportation issues such as: problems with WMATA
and what to expect with the change in management;
enhancement to the Connecticut/Plyers Mill/Howard/
Knowles mega-intersection; and bicycle/pedestrian/
disability issues.

Spring Park Cleanup Was a Great Success
The spring cleanup was well attended by over 25 hardworking volunteers,
who spent a combined total of 80 hours picking up trash and clearing invasive plants.
Thanks to all who participated to help make our park a more beautiful and
ecologically beneficial place to visit.

Zoning and Traffic Update
M
ontgomery County plans to build its first bus
rapid transit line, along Route 29 from the Silver
Spring Transit Center to Burtonsville. This 14-mile
segment is part of a larger system approved in 2013
that includes the MD 355 (Rockville Pike) and Veirs
Mill Road corridors. County Executive Ike Leggett
plans to have the Route 29 line running by 2019 for
$67.2 million.
Residents of the area surrounding the Forest Glen
Metro station are working to form their own civic association. They seek a cohesive neighborhood voice
on projects such as the redevelopment of the land
around the station and the proposal for a pedestrian
tunnel under Georgia Avenue at Forest Glen Road.
For more information, visit www.forestglen.fyi.
The “Envision Wheaton’s Future” walking tour took
place May 7 in downtown Wheaton. The walking
tour brought together a host of County and private
experts and resources on topics such as the new development project, affordable housing, traffic, pedestrian and public safety, the new Bikeshare program,
green spaces, the business assistance program, and
Wheaton as an arts and entertainment district. For
more information on the Wheaton Urban District
Advisory Committee (WUDAC), visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/midcounty/boards.

O
n April 16th, neighborhood volunteers participated in our second community service day at
A Wider Circle. We sorted donations, moved furniture,
and helped load items onto the trucks of needy families. Students earned community service credits. The
organization greatly appreciated our efforts and I hope
to schedule additional days in the future.

CALLING YOUTH INTERESTED IN
CIVIC ENGAGEMENT:
Alan Heymann,
MHCK Zoning and Traffic Committee Chair
We on the MH-CK Civic Association board would
like to gauge the interest of youth in our community to be part of a Youth Council.
The Council would ensure that youth have a say
in how our community grows – to provide insights
to the board and to propose ideas for community
projects and events.
At this point, we’d just like to know whether there
are high school and middle school-age youth
who would like to participate. If you or someone
you know is interested, please send an email to

eighbors on the email list are well aware by now
of the recent epidemic of vehicle break-ins, and
know that I have sent the list of break-ins to Joy Patil,
Community Services Officer for the 3rd District. If
there are any new incidents, please post them on the
email list or email me at [email protected] I know
that most of us are not up in the middle of the night,
but if you should happen to be awake and see someone
checking cars, call the police immediately. I would
recommend informing them that we’ve had a rash of
recent break-ins in the neighborhood. Police patrols
are increased when necessary. Prior to these recent
outbreaks, the neighborhood was mostly quiet. Joy has
informed the night patrol officers of the recent incidents, so that should bring increased patrols.
t is an honor for me to assume the duties of treasurer
for our Association. I hope that I can continue the
excellent work of the treasurers who preceded me.
Currently, we have approximately $1,100 in the bank.
After the printing of this newsletter, our bank account
will be down to about half that amount. I’ve been going
through the membership list and sending reminders to
neighbors about updating their dues. So when you see
the emails from me, please take a moment and submit
your payment via PayPal (http://www.mhckcivic.org/
pay-yourdues.html) or regular mail (made out to the
McKenney Hills-Carroll Knolls Civic Association) sent
to: McKenney Hills-Carroll Knolls Civic Association,

know that the Association can count on your support.

Liz explains, not only do work for others but also forge
deep and abiding friendships. Liz also belongs to three
quilting guilds: the Bethesda Quilters, NeedleChasers
of Chevy Chase, and the Nimble Fingers Quilters.
Once a year, Liz goes on a quilt retreat at Hallowood
Retreat Center, at the foot of Sugarloaf Mountain, in
Dickerson. For four blissful days, she does nothing
but quilt and confer with fellow quilters on quilting
projects.
This year, Liz will show quilts at the NeedleChasers’ annual show, on October 7-8 (at the Kensington
Armory) and at the Nimble Fingers Quilters’ show on
October 21 and 22, at The Universities at Shady Grove
(in Rockville).
Liz would love to meet other quilters in the neighborhood, and asks that they contact her at [email protected]

Vecino destacado: Liz Brigham, quilter
S
alvo por un corto tramo de seis años, Liz Brigham
ha vivido en la misma casa en la Avenida Gates
desde 1951, cuando tenía ocho años de edad. Ella
y su esposo Bob ahora viven allí con su hijo, nuera
y nieto. En las paredes de su sala y muebles exhibe
sobrecamas (quilts) de varios tamaños y estilos, todos
hermosos.
Cada año, ella dona al menos ocho mantas para bebés
y niños hospitalizados y 10 manteles para Meals on
Wheels. El PTA de Escuela Elemental Flora Singer
y otras buenas causas se han beneficiado de sus
donaciones para ser subastados o sorteados.
Mucho del trabajo de Liz para la caridad lo ha hecho
como miembro de pequeños grupos. Los miembros
del mini-grupo, Liz explica, no sólo trabajan para
otros sino también a hacer amistades profundas y
perdurables. Liz también pertenece a tres grupos de
costura: los Quilters de Bethesda, los NeedleChasers
de Chevy Chase y los Nimble Quilters.
Liz ha estado cosiendo la mayor parte de su vida. Ella
comenzó a hacer sobrecamas en 1995, poco después
de retirarse del U.S. Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home.
Cuando se le preguntó cuántos sobrecamas ha hecho
durante los años, ella no pudo dar con un número, han
sido tantos.
Una vez al año, Liz va en un retiro de tejido en el
centro de retiro de Hallowood, al pie de la Montaña
Sugarloaf, en Dickerson. Durante estos cuatro días
felices ella no hace nada pero quilt y conferenciar con
compañeros acerca de futuros proyectos.
Ella ha hecho de todo, desde servilletas hasta colchas
tamaño extra-grande. Su primer sobrecama, un
colgante de pared Navideño, lo hizo de un patrón.
Ahora, ella a menudo hace tejidos de su propio diseño,
utilizando parchos, apliques y otras técnicas. Ella ha
ganado cintas en la Feria del Condado de Montgomery
y ha enseñado clases de “quilting” en Capital Quilting
en Gaithersburg. Ella también ha tenido uno de sus
diseños originales, “Hojas Cayendo,” publicado. Y
ella inventó una cubierta tejida para proteger del sol
los volantes de autos – se ve muy hermoso.
Este año, Liz mostrará tejidos en feria anual de la
NeedleChasers, 7-8 de octubre (en la Armería de Kensington), mostrará los Nimble Quilters 21 de octubre y
22, en las Universidades de Shady Grove (en Rockville).
A Liz le encantaría conocer a otras quilters en el
vecindario y pide que pongan en contacto con ella en
[email protected]
Mucho del trabajo de Liz lo hace para la caridad.

McKenney Hills *Carroll Knolls
Market Statistics Update
Would you believe a $200,000+ price difference in the price
of two similar homes sold this Spring in our neighborhood?!
That’s a significant amount of money, and I thought I’d share an analysis of how a
variation like that can exist.
In this case, both of these ramblers hit the market in early Spring, and were sold &
settled by mid-May. Both homes were of the same brick construction built in the
early 1950’s. The smaller of the two sat on a 6,500 square foot lot, had a taxable living
area of 968 square feet, 3 bedrooms, and 1 ½ baths, along with a full finished
basement. The larger rambler sat on a lot twice the size, a taxable living area of 1,260
square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the main level, along with an
additional bedroom and bath in the basement.
The smaller rambler of the two closed for $277,500, for a per-square-foot price of
$286.67, while the larger rambler closed for $489,000, for a per-square-foot price of
$388.09. Real estate is never just a simple math equation though, it’s about the
details of the properties.
So how does one explain the large price difference? The larger rambler had a
driveway, a front porch, a lot twice the size that was beautifully landscaped, had an
extra bed and bath, and 300 more square feet. While that helped, that wasn’t
everything. The smaller rambler had a hot water heater and central air less than
seven years old, but the rest of the property showed it’s age to the degree that no
photos of the interior were made available. In contrast, the larger rambler was
updated throughout the property; refinished hardwood floors, new paint throughout,
updated appliances, and an inviting backyard patio complete with water feature.
While a dollar figure can’t be placed line-item by line-item, it was evident to the buyer
of the larger property and to the bank’s appraiser that the home was worth every
penny of the asking price.
If you’re contemplating selling your home, which end of the spectrum would you like
to be? If you’d like to ensure that you’re on the right track to maximizing the value of
your home, I’m here to help. Contact me to schedule a confidential, no-obligation
consultation.
