Congratulations Casey Anderson and Norman Dreyfuss

Congratulations to Casey Anderson and Norman Dreyfuss who we named to full terms on the Montgomery County Planning Board.

Mr. Anderson, who lives in Silver Spring, is a litigation consultant for Kauffman Anderson Consulting. He has been a long-time civic activist, working on a wide variety of land use and transportation issues, including the White Flint Sector Plan, the move of Walter Reed Hospital to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda and the proposed building of the Purple Line east-west connection of Metro. He serves as a member of the Planning Board’s Zoning Advisory Panel, as vice chair of the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board and as a director of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association.

Mr. Dreyfuss, who lives in Potomac, was the developer of Leisure World in northern Silver Spring—the region’s largest age-restricted community. He oversees the development of Virginia, a 2,400-unit active adult community in the Lansdowne community near Leesburg. He serves on the County’s Housing Opportunities Commission and on the Affordable Housing Conference. He has served on the County Task Force for Moderate Price Rentals, the Child Care Task Force and the Wheaton Redevelopment Steering Committee. Mr. Dreyfuss is currently filling a partial term on the board.

As Chair of the Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee, I’m particularly impressed with these selections. We have a lot of important work ahead of us, and these are two great people for the job.
