Some concerned by removal of Bethesda Community Store sign (Photos)
Some residents living near the now-closed Bethesda Community Store feel the sign on the historic building should not have been removed. Those who have contacted me question whether a sign can be removed from a historic structure without review under historic designation guidelines. A source tells me at least one resident has been in touch with the Montgomery County Planning Department's Historic Preservation Office, where staff were reportedly surprised and not pleased to hear the sign had been removed.
