Next Kemp Mill Civic Association General Meeting: Tuesday December 19th @ 7:30 PM

Dear Kemp Mill Neighbor,

You are invited to the Kemp Mill Civic Association’s quarterly meeting which will be held Tuesday December 19 at Kemp Mill Elementary School from 7:30pm-8:55pm. An agenda for the meeting is attached.

Councilmember Natali Fani-González, our District 6 representative on the Montgomery County Council, will be our guest speaker. She’ll discuss her work to fix up Kemp Mill Urban Park, and will be available to answer questions generally about her work as our representative in county government.

Folks who were at the September meeting will remember that KMCA discussed and adopted a list of eight priorities for fixing/improving Kemp Mill Urban Park. Since then, we’ve been hard at work trying to make our beloved park better serve the community’s needs. The KMCA Board sent the County Council a letter summarizing KMCA’s priorities for the park. Councilmember Fani-González has been using that letter as a basis for discussions with Montgomery Parks. Additionally, the newly-created KMCA Cleanup Committee, led by Melanie Goodrich, had a successful park cleanup on November 5 where we removed several trash bags worth of litter from Kemp Mill Urban Park.

As you can see from the agenda, we have other important areas to discuss as well. I look forward to seeing you at next week’s meeting!


Jules Szanton
President, KMCA
