Progress: 
 

Welcome to the Best of Takoma Park & Silver Spring survey.

Whether you live in Takoma Park or Silver Spring, you’ve got to admit that this is a one of the best spots on Planet Earth. We certainly think so!

In that spirit, once again we are asking our readers what they like best about living here.

We have a lot of questions. Answer as many as you can—but you do not need to answer every one.

Remember to make local choices.

Please forward this survey to your friends. We would like as much community input as possible.  Thank you for reading the Voice!
