The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission Montgomery Parks is currently updating the Master Plan for Wheaton Regional Park and is soliciting feedback from the community.
At a recent meeting, park planners mentioned a velodrome as one facility that could be included in the new plan.
Please sign the petition if you support building a velodrome in Wheaton Regional Park, Wheaton, Maryland.

To the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission Montgomery Parks
We propose that M-NCPPC Montgomery Parks include a velodrome in the new Wheaton Regional Park Master Plan. There are many compelling reasons that support the inclusion of a velodrome at Wheaton Regional Park, including:
The nearest velodromes are located three hours away to the north (Allentown, PA), and five hours to the south (Rock Hill, SC). These attract cyclists from a wide geographic area given the lack of velodrome facilities in the Mid-Atlantic region.
