Assessment of the Town’s Existing Real Estate Assets

The Mayor and Town Council assembled a Committee of experienced architects, real estate management and management consulting executives living in and outside of Glen Echo. The goal of the Committee was to provide an assessment of the Town’s existing real estate assets so the Town Council can better evaluate new real estate opportunities as they arise, and to see if the real estate assets are best utilized for the long term needs of the town. This led to reviewing the Town’s real estate holdings and the Town’s options with regard to these holdings, as well as assessing how the holdings contribute to the Town’s financial stability.
