Montgomery Co Town Center Construction Restarts After 7 Year Hiatus

Construction is finally restarting again at the Clarksburg Town Center in Montgomery County after a seven year pause. Construction stopped on the upscale residential community when homeowners accused developers of violating county building codes.
Developers then sued the county resulting in parks, sidewalks and roadways remaining unfinished for seven years.
But after a lengthy battle, developers have reached an agreement, promising to complete a $7.5 million in improvements.
The town center was meant to be an upscale community made up of 1300 homes and promised amenities like a private dog park.
Residents like Lynn Falter moved here 12-years ago and has watched the community park become a storm water pond. She also notices the promised amphitheater has not been built nor many of the promised sidewalks.
"It's never been about getting super high-end amenities. It's about getting the amenities we were promised when we moved in," said one resident.
According to the current agreement, developers now have until the end of next year to complete most of the remainder of the project.
