Live blogging from the February 1, 2010 meeting of the Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee of the Montgomery County Council. The agenda today involves continued discussion of the White Flint Sector Plan; this is the sixth PHED Committee hearing on the White Flint Plan. One more hearing is scheduled on the Plan, for February 9.
One topic is expected to dominate today’s PHED hearing: “Land use/transportation Balance.” As discussed in several posts below, this is the question of whether the County will block further consideration of the White Flint Plan because cars are expected not to move fast enough through White Flint after the 30-year development of the area. The Committee and its staff have wrestled with this question for months. Today may be the day the Committee finally makes a decision.
