Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board

The Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board is tasked with providing advice to the County Executive and County Council on issues affecting Silver Spring and Takoma Park. These issues include transportation, economic development, housing, youth activities and the environment. All meetings are open to the public and we encourage community participation.

The Board represents residents who live in the Silver Spring Region, which includes the area between Rock Creek Park & the Prince Georges County line, the area south of I-495 to the District of Columbia, including all of the City of Takoma Park, & all of Four Corners, including the Four Corners neighborhoods north of I-495.

Meetings are held in the Silver Spring Civic Building, One Veterans Place. Parking is available at the Town Square Garage.
