Fort Washington Marina
February 2, 2024
Fort Washington Forward recently met with Annapolis-based Trident Marine Group who will be taking over full-time management of Fort Washington Marina. They are working on finalizing the lease agreement with the National Park Service and expect it to be final sometime in Q1 2024. Trident Marine Group bought out Coastal Properties, who had been managing the marina. CEO Jerome Parks says Trident wants to deliver an experience that caters to boaters and serves the community at large. It is too early to say exactly when, but Parks stated he expects the restaurant space to be reopened, and be something that the entire community can enjoy. After the lease is finalized, they would welcome the opportunity to meet and greet with the community at one of our upcoming Community Development Forums.
MD 210 Bike/Pedestrian Connectivity Project
February 22, 2024
During our most recent Community Development Forum on February 22nd, the Maryland Department of Transportation presented its latest updates on the MD 210 Bike/Pedestrian Connectivity Project. The project is a proposed shared use path that will be constructed parallel to and around MD 210. The path will provide residents with increased multimodal transportation options along the MD 210 corridor, and along Oxon Hill Road near National Harbor. The project is in the Phase I design phase, with a goal of reaching 30% of the Phase I design by summer 2024. Fort Washington Forward and Adventist HealthCare Fort Washington Medical Center have written letters of support recommending grant funding to fully fund the project. More community feedback opportunities are expected this summer, and we will provide that information as we receive it.
