Urban District Advisory Committee

Chair: Mel Tull

The Silver Spring Urban District Advisory Committee is comprised of 11 (currently 9) members appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council. Two members are persons nominated by the Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce, three members represent optional method developers, two business representatives that employ fewer than 25 employees, three residential community members from the Urban District, and one member who is on the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board.

The Committee advises the County government on all aspects of the program, management, and finances of the Urban District. It works closely with the Silver Spring Urban District on activities and issues associated with the downtown business area. Members serve three-year terms without compensation. The Silver Spring Urban District is funded through the Urban District Tax, Parking Lot District fees collected by the County, maintenance charges on optional method developments, transfers from the General Fund, and other miscellaneous revenue such as contributions and charges for services. Funds are used for the Urban District in which they are obtained.
