Last week, the FLOG invited Montgomery County Councilmembers to provide statements about the White Flint Sector Plan. Here is the statement sent to the FLOG by Councilmember Duchy Trachtenberg, a resident of White Flint:
I am very pleased at the Council’s strong affirmative vote in support of the White Flint Sector Plan. During its consideration, we witnessed a very strong, effective and positive collaborative effort among key community stakeholders which has resulted in an exciting plan for a safe, healthy, and pedestrian friendly urban community. This “partnership” with the community stands as a model for future master plans in Montgomery County.
With this effort, we have worked hard to design a plan which promotes growth, respects established neighborhoods, and incorporates innovative and environmentally-friendly solutions for traffic and mobility.
Our work, however, is not over. I look forward to working with my Council colleagues on the development of a sustainable financing plan for the White Flint plan area and a development coordination mechanism which will give comfort to our neighbors and the business community about infrastructure and financing issues.
