The Montgomery County Planning Board does much of its work on the White Flint Sector Plan in worksessions organized around topics. Today’s worksession is likely to cover four important topics:
the Design Guidelines which add details to the broad outlines painted by the Master Plan itself;
the new CR (Commercial/Residential) Zone expected to be created for White Flint and other areas in order to provide flexibility between various types of development, while limiting overall density and heights;
implementation and staging of the various White Flint improvements and projects, particularly infrastructure (transportation, including the conversion of Rockville Pike into a boulevard); and
financing, involving how to pay for the various improvements.
This will likely be the final preliminary worksession before the Board receives the staff’s recommendation for a final draft Plan. That presentation is scheduled for June 18. The Board hopes to complete its work on the White Flint Plan by July 9.
