Now is the time to get involved with your community!  Your ideas and passion will help to improve the quality of life in Town Center and enrich the experiences of all residents.  Getting involved helps to bring about change as we advocate for the areas of most importance such as affordable housing, tasteful and imaginative development, expanding diversity initiatives, protecting water quality, maintaining safe roadways and neighborhoods, assisting the arts community and maintaining our award-winning school system.

We need to be relevant, “fired up,” and ready to live up to the values of this amazing planned community that was envisioned by James Rouse and whose legacy we need to carry forward with each successive generation.

Now is not the time to sit on the sidelines…..get in the game, have a voice and help your community.
