We would like to remind Town residents of the special Public Hearings on the Forest Heights Annexation Plan. As required by law, notices were sent to the county and state, and four weeks of public notice was published in a newspaper of general circulation. While we are only required to have one hearing 15 days after the last publication, we will hold two in order for some of our older citizens to be able to attend.

The first hearing will be held on Jan. 12 at 6 p.m., and the final hearing will be held on Jan. 21 at 8 p.m., both at the Town Hall Building. I hope to see as many of you in attendance and sharing your feedback as this will be a huge game-changer for our area. This will help to cement the future of our Town, especially in regard to the new MGM casino at National Harbor and other future economic development projects in the area along Indian Head Highway and Oxon Hill Road that will benefit our Town.

Since 2005, the Town Council has discussed annexation of commercial areas as a means to reduce the tax burden on residents, similar to those actions taken by Bowie, Hyattsville and other municipalities. As we look to the north in the District and all around Prince George's County, we have seen a great deal of change, and as our town administrator is fond of saying "Change is coming; we can be the author of our future or sit back and wait to see what happens." Please join us as we envision a better future for Forest Heights and Move Forward.
