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Effective today, NDC has rescinded the cease & desist order and the lease termination notice issued to the Co-op on April 15, 2021 related to their unsafe use of the parking lot.

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.
