The Montgomery County Planning Board does much of its work on the White Flint Sector Plan in worksessions organized around topics. Live streaming video is available at: www.montgomeryplanningboard.org.

Today’s topics are:

  • implementation and financing updates, featuring Jacob Sesker, Planner Coordinator in the Vision Division, who explains what this will all cost, and how to pay for it (which includes a timing factor, since financing and implementing the Board’s vision will take time),
  • reviewing the public testimony and comments on implementation issues from the January 12, 2009, hearing on the White Flint Sector Plan Public Hearing Draft, and
  • discussing the County Executive’s views on various aspects of the Plan.

There is also an intriguing little section at the end of the staff memo for today’s worksession on “Charter Review Commission.”  This on-going review of the county governance may affect the implementation and financing of the White Flint Plan.

The worksession begins at 9AM in the auditorium, 8787 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring.
