The Neighborhood Revitalization Section of the County Department of Housing and Community Affairs facilitated the installation of the community signs in the northeast portion of the County.

The featured sign is located on the north side of Route 198 and in the 15000 block of Old Columbia Pike, adjacent to the Burtonsville Town Square Shopping Center. The other sign is located on the south side of Route 198 and in the 3100 block of Spencerville Road, directly across from the Idara Jaferia Islamic Center.

“These new signs not only enhance the sense of community in Burtonsville, but also serve to mark the area and help establish Burtonsville as a desirable destination in the county,” said County Executive Elrich. “In addition, they are a reminder of the truly transformational improvements made to the facades and sites of various properties located along Route 198 thanks to the County’s Façade Improvement Program. On July 1st, we will launch our new Countywide Facade Improvement Program. The program makes available $3.5 million in funding through fiscal year 2028 to help business and commercial property owners transform their buildings, like those found here in Burtonsville, with new, visually appealing exteriors.

As part of the façade improvement program, DHCA worked with property owners, including Katz & Company Property Management and Site Realty, to help transform outdated exteriors and remove old signage.

“Through the new Countywide Façade Improvement Program, DHCA will work with property owners and businesses throughout the County to improve and transform their properties,” said Aseem K. Nigam, director of DHCA. “We are focusing on initial outreach in Glenmont, Hillandale, Layhill, Long Branch, Montgomery Village and Wheaton, but will work to improve properties in other targeted areas throughout Montgomery County.”
