Last night at a presentation by renowned town planner Andres Duany for a new urban neighborhood in Rockville MD, a creative class group of visionary, future home buyers took it upon themselves to independently form a beta community.
Perhaps this community is the first of its kind, especially since it will take two years before they could move into the proposed project, if it is even approved by the city council. Brandon, Jenny, Hyojung, Kart, Stu, Kamile, Charles, Brian, Hilary, Manny & Andy and Laura were there, met each other as potential new neighbors, and are the founders of the beta community. They even mutually agreed with the development’s project manager, also a beta resident, that they don’t want any ‘Ruby Tuesdays’.
At times, you could already feel the sense of community.
