$ilverman claims there's no housing plan for Seven Locks, while Leventhal hints there is

County Council member Steve Silverman is now accusing Seven Locks neighbors of making up reports that county leaders want to demolish the elementary school and replace it with high-density housing, even though just a few months ago he accused those same people of "racism" because they opposed his high-density housing plan.

At the May 3 County Council meeting, Silverman told community leader Sandy Vogelgesang, "you have your facts wrong."

But Council Vice President George Leventhal hinted that the county is indeed considering the site for subsidized housing.

According to the Potomac Almanac, Leventhal said, "we're weighing a dramatic need for housing, workforce housing and other types of housing."
