Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board

The Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board is tasked with providing advice to the County Executive and County Council on issues affecting Silver Spring and Takoma Park. These issues include transportation, economic development, housing, youth activities and the environment. All meetings are open to the public and we encourage community participation.
