February 1999 Status
February 1999: National Register Nomination Accepted
With the Bethesda Theatre's National Register nomination accepted, we move on to the campaign for community support. We must contact community groups, state our position, and arrange to speak at local meetings.
We are going to create a new flyer and organize volunteers to begin distributing them in Bethesda. (This is essential.)
After distribution is under way, we can contact community groups, state our position, and arrange to speak at local meetings.
All this leads up to the theatre owner's intention to file a Site Plan this spring - which will lead to an application to the Historic Preservation Commission for an Historic Area Work Permit (HAWP) - which is where we fight our real battle, using a combination of expert testimony and community support.
So join the fight - and the fun!
Anyone interested in this matter, especially Montgomery County residents, should contact Linda Lyons, co-chair of ADSW's preservation committee, about supporting ADSW's position and helping with the work of the committee.
