WAMU–It Takes A Village: Silver Spring Community Effort Helps Rid Apartments Of Mold
More than a year after joining forces and eliciting help from community groups and the Montgomery County Council, the mostly immigrant tenants of Northwest Park Apartments are celebrating a small victory. This summer, Kay Apartment Communities began the process of replacing all of the windows in the 75-building complex on Ames Road, a move that will hopefully eliminate the mold and mildew that has plagued the complex.
Katie Ashmore, an organizer with Action in Montgomery (AIM), who helped the tenants organize, said the $2 million project is a key step in preventing the high levels of humidity in the apartments that caused the mold to grow to return after the treatment.
