Inclusive Community Main Street Breaks Ground in Rockville
Main Street, an inclusive, community-centered residential development, broke ground in Rockville on October 19. The community is the first of its kind in the Washington Metropolitan Area, with 25% of the apartments designed and designated for adults with disabilities. Main Street’s mission is to meet the urgent need for disability housing and programming with affordable, community-centered spaces and opportunities that promote inclusion, independence and quality of life. Steve Robins serves as land use counsel for the project, which is scheduled to open in 2020.
Bethesda Magazine reported that more than 300 people attended the groundbreaking, and that "[w]hen asked what Main Street means to the crowd, dozens held up signs with sentiments like 'community, 'equality' and 'inclusiveness.'"
