URGENT PETITION

For Montgomery County Residents

TO: COUNTY EXECUTIVE, DOUGLAS DUNCAN, THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY COUNCIL, PARK AND PLANNING COMMISSION, BETHESDA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, MARYLAND STATE REPRESENTATIVES, LOCAL AND NATIONAL ARTS COUNCILS AND ORGANIZATIONS:

We, the undersigned residents of Montgomery County, Maryland are concerned about the unanticipated displacement of key arts organizations and the resulting negative educational, artistic and economic consequences caused by impending demolition of the existing retail building located at 7702 Woodmont Avenue, Bethesda, Maryland. That building houses certain educational arts organizations, including Joy of Motion Dance Center (JOM) and The Academy of the Maryland Youth Ballet (MYB). Both institutions are self-supporting nonprofit organizations that have grown to become Montgomery Countys largest centers of learning for dance and movement arts. Together, both centers serve 10s of 1000s of adult students and 1500 child/teen students annually within its Bethesda studios. The undersigned are seeking your support to locate appropriate alternative space for JOM/MYB to lease on a long-term basis or build in conjunction with other planned development projects in close proximity to its current Bethesda studio. JOM and MYB seek to create a state-of-the-art facility in Bethesda that supports its building and expansion plan as a premiere educational dance institute in the area. Your immediate assistance is required if JOM and MYB are to remain operational in Montgomery County and in Maryland. Therefore, we respectfully request your immediate assistance and support in this matter.
