Spoke to:
Deputy City Manager
City of Gaithersburg, MD.
He says the city does not support the bridge project unless it includes the exit 12 off ramp.
It makes sense to have both.
As it stands now there are no funding to start the bridge project.
This changes the dynamics for the success of this community.
Case in point, when we where looking into Clarksburg, we were told that construction of needed retail shopping would begin once phase two begins.
No funding at this time.
Lots of people with nowhere to shop near by.
Empty promises due to economic times!

The issues with Clarksburg is much different than that of the Parklands. Also, The Parklands are about a mile and a half away from the Kentlands and 1/2 mile away from a MARC train directly to Union staion and stops with direct access to the Metro. I highly doubt anyone is buying based on the "exit 12" proposal or the "towncenter". I think more people are buying because of low borrowing cost and where else can you buy a brand new townhouse in MoCo for that price, built by NV?

The townhomes in Crownfarms will start in the mid $600k maybe more...

The city thinks it is best to do it once the funding for the proposed exit 12 is approved.
This is farther away intime then some of us have been told.
Enjoy the peacefulness of low traffic volume until such time!

"I highly doubt anyone is buying based on the "exit 12" proposal or the "towncenter". We sure did as well as the other reasons you mentioned.

BTW, I threw together a Facebook page called “Parklands 20878” for those who want to get to know others in the community.
It is open to all for now and looking for content to add.
