An engaged crowd of approximately 60 Centreville residents showed up to the Wye River Upper School on Tuesday evening (6/14) to listen to Ed McMahon of the Urban Land Institute, who spoke for more than an hour about current, succesful town development strategies around the country. Mr. McMahon fielded quesitons following his presentation and spoke directly as to the current potential/importance of Chesterfield (Carter Farm) in creating a vibrant, future Centreville. The entire session was filmed by Queen Anne’s Public Television and will be played during the weeks to follow.
