The Montgomery County Planning Board is moving into the 21st Century, aided by Google Maps. Now you can go to: http://www.montgomeryplanning.org/development/finder.shtm
click on a map, and see information about various projects in the County. The map, for example, shows the three pending White Flint ”sketch plan” proposals at Mid-Pike Plaza (Federal Realty), North Bethesda Market Phase II (JBG), and North Bethesda Gateway (ProMark). Clicking through for more information adds some interesting stuff, such as the fact that the architect for Mid-Pike Plaza is from White Plains, New York. Be sure to look at the bottom of each of the sketch plans for the link to all the paperwork for each project.
Site’s still a little buggy, though, especially on some browsers. YMMV.
