If a naming/branding change is destine to occur why not stay with WHITE FLINT. In my opinion, WHITE FLINT is the logical label. The metro stop that serves the area is known to everyone as the as the White Flint station and after all you/we are known as the “Friends” of White Flint.

    Hi Stuart! For background, the metro station was named after the mall. Because that metro station was the epicenter of the transit-oriented planning area, it’s name was used for the White Flint Sector Plan. Our group, which also started during planning, mirrored the sector plan’s name. It’s likely that FoWF’s name will change to align with the area – and that’s not a surprise to many of us because we’ve known the name issue has never been settled. So, we’re excited for tonight’s exercise to move us in the right direction – whichever one that is.
