One of the largest Lutheran congregations in suburban Maryland

Represented one of the largest Lutheran congregations in suburban Maryland, by obtaining unprecedented relief under the Damascus Area Master Plan for Montgomery County, Md., to permit a major expansion of the church's facilities. The county and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission agreed to the future granting of several extraordinary environmental impact waivers for a large expansion of the church's facilities into a Class IV stream valley, and to construct and maintain (at the county's expense) a public parking lot on an adjacent property, saving the church several million dollars in environmental remediation and construction costs.
