Alternatives

An architect familiar with Poolesville and experienced in preservation generated the two following plans.

Alternate #1

The Willard Property at Town Center, shown with 46 units arranged around (and facing) a green open space that includes a playground. This scale is in keeping with existing homes. Note the walkway (drawn in red) that connects Whalen Common with the John Poole House.

Alternate #2

A similar layout to #1, with the walking path, generous green space, houses arranged around the open space in the style of a traditional town green. But this plan also includes senior housing, which you can see in the Northeast corner of the parcel (upper right).
