Montgomery County wants to spend $5 million on Uncle Tom’s Cabin

The Montgomery County Planning Department will hold a work session next week on the proposed Josiah Henson Special Park master plan. Today, the Montgomery County Parks Department posted its staff memo to the Planning Board detailing its cost estimates to develop the park. Parks Department staff estimates that it will cost between $3 and $5 million to implement the option recommended at the October 28, 2010 hearing.

The December 2 Planning Board agenda and Parks Department documents are now available at the Planning Board Website.

In a related development, Montgomery Preservation, Inc., has put up an “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” page at its Website with what they suggest is “the real story.” Stay tuned for more on that effort.
