Balloon Test Reminder
This from Mark Shroder of the North College Park Citizen's Association:
On Saturday, February 17th, from 8:30 am to 11 am, giant hot-air balloons
will rise above the CSX/Metro railroad tracks to demonstrate the heights of
buildings proposed for the Greenbelt Station development. The balloons will
go to 12 stories next to the station itself, to 16 or 18 stories across the
tracks from Al Huda, and to 14 stories where Narragansett ditch runs below
The purpose of the demonstration is so that the neighbors can gauge the
impact of these heights for themselves.
City and county officials, and representatives of the developer, will be on
hand at the Greenbelt Metro to answer questions and take comments.
Show me a hot air balloon pilot that can be that accurate and I'll show you
Now what do the rest of you think ;-)
