The Board is composed of 18 residents and/or business persons of communities in the Silver Spring/Takoma Park area. Applicants must work or reside within the Silver Spring Regional Center's service boundaries. The boundaries include: 495 south of the Beltway (exception: all Four Corners neighborhoods north of the Beltway are included); Rock Creek park to the west; the District of Columbia line to the south; and the Prince George’s County line to the east. Homeowners and apartment dwellers are invited to apply in order to establish a balanced representation.
