Consensus Reached to Include Words “North Bethesda” in Potential White Flint Metro Name Change
On Wednesday night, Amy Ginsburg of the Friends of White Flint hosted an online discussion with County Executive Marc Elrich, Councilmember Andrew Friedson, and The Greater Bethesda Chamber to discuss the re-naming of White Flint metro station.
Ginsburg told MCM, “the approximately 60 people in attendance went from expressing a fairly even split to reaching a consensus to change the station’s name to something that included the two words – North Bethesda”
The name of the metro station is most closely associated to the old White Flint mall and current residents don’t believe it reflects the area.
Lord & Taylor, the last remnant of the mall, closed in January of this year. The rest of the mall was demolished in 2015.
The two names we’re hearing suggested the most are “North Bethesda” and “Pike District”.
Our friend Dan Reed @justupthepike had a few good suggestions:
