Neighborhood Development Company Rescission of Parking Lot Lease Termination Notice Statement

Effective today, NDC has rescinded the cease & desist order and the lease termination notice issued to the Co-op on April 15, 2021 related to their unsafe use of the parking lot.

As the 99-year leaseholder of the parking lot on the west side of the Takoma Park-Silver Spring Food Co-op, NDC respects the valuable role that the Co-op plays in the fabric of our community. Over the past years, we have successfully worked with the Co-op to ensure that they can continue to serve local residents.

We continue to be concerned that the current delivery practices pose a significant safety threat to children, pedestrian, bicyclist and driver safety, and need to be addressed for the benefit of the community. We hope that the Co-op will work with the City of Takoma Park to address these concerns and help to create a safer Takoma Junction.
