Welcome. This is the home page for the gaithersburg-list, an email-based,
community discussion forum. We want to
encourage all persons with an interest in the community to subscribe. To do so,
please first check out the mailing list background page and
then just browse to the list subscription web page
http://lists.gaithersburg-list.net/mailman/listinfo/oldetowne. Fill out the
form and click the "Subscribe" button. You will receive an email in your
inbox shortly; follow the instructions in the email -- all you should have to
do is reply. This step is to make sure that nobody can sign you up without you
knowing. Then, your subscription request will be
forwarded to the list administrators, who will add your
address to the list manually. We may do some screening for appropriateness,
but only in the interest of keeping the list within the community -- these days,
mailing lists often have trouble with spammers joining up so they can use
them for advertising :-( . Toward this
end, please write a little note to us in the body of your subscription request,
letting us know how you are connected to the community; telling us what street
you live on for example. We're not nosy, we just want to keep the off-topic
list traffic to a minimum. In most cases, we should be able to have you on the
list within a day or so, but please give it as much as two or three days to
account for the possibility that we're both swamped with other stuff. We
will send you a message letting you know that you've been added.
If you decide to subscribe, again, please do read the information on the
mailing list page, which covers list etiquette as well as documenting
the mechanics of how to participate in the list
- We have a new domain and mailing list processor! More updates are on the way...
- Added a page with some
streetscape pictures provided by Tom Patton.
- Added the minutesof the
10/23/00 GHDC meeting. I'll be adding more recent minutes as I get
- An archive of Mailing list is now available. If you've
just joined, now you can catch up with what's been discussed already...! I don't yet have an
automatic mechanism for maintaining the archive, so it will be updated only sporadically
for a while.
- Many small improvements and changes. Added a bunch of stuff on the
traffic page regarding the traffic situation in the Chestnut-Meem area. Also,
I've fixed things up many of the image
links so that this page should work even better in text-based browsers such as
Lynx or w3m.
- Added a new
page (also linked off the Traffic Page)
containing a transcription of the notes that
are contained on that huge image on proposed traffic calming measures. This one you
can read without a 15 minute download, and actually see what is being proposed!
- Many updates and corrections. Of note is a new page containing
the source images used in making the charrette presentation. Thanks, Clark. Also,
I finally got around to making the traffic speed page into an html table. You
can find these all linked off the Traffic Page.
- Well, it is probably jarringly obvious, but I just did a major overhaul on the web pages. They were
getting kind of gnarly and more or less impossible to manage, so I imposed a little more organization. Hope y'all like it, and please
let me know if you have any trouble with it.
- Clark Wagner has kindly given us permission to post his PowerPoint presentation from the 7/10/00 charrette.
These files are linked from the
- Quite a few people attended the City's follow-up
charrette last night. If you were there, what did you think?
your thoughts and opinions to the list! Also, if you have notes from the meeting,
or if you are preparing a suggestion for the City, and you'd like to post
them here, please let me know. Thanks!
We've started to to collect links some links
external websites containing information useful to community residents. If you
would like to suggest links for inclusion here, please let
me know! If this list gets a little longer, I'll
try to organize it a bit...
