White Flint 2
It was standing room only at last night’s White Flint 2 Sector Plan meeting that was held at Luxmanor Elementary. It was great to see so many engaged residents asking questions and studying large drawings of White Flint 2’s transportation, zoning, and public spaces.
For those of you who were unable to be there, here’s a quick summary of what was discussed.
N’kosi Yearwood of M-NCPPC talked us through a short but informative PowerPoint presentation about the White Flint 2 Sector Plan.  Here are some highlights:
  • The White Flint 2 is composed of 455 acres, including Randolph Hills, Loehmann’s Plaza, Montrose Crossing, Montrose Parkway Phase II, and Federal Plaza.
  • It is on the north end of the White Flint 1 Sector, shaped like a horseshoe.  It is adjacent to the Twinbrook Sector Plan and the City of Rockville.
  • The area includes 1,860 dwelling units and about 6.3 million sq feet of non-residential space.
  • A MARC station may be planned for Nicholson Court.
  • They hope to deliver a draft plan in March 2016 for the Planning Board to review. Work sessions would begin Spring 2016 with a review by the County Executive in the Summer 2016 and the County Council during Winter 2016.
  • There will be many future public meetings to obtain public input.
  • You can keep up-to-date with White Flint 2 news at http://www.montgomeryplanning.org/community/whiteflint2/. (We’ll also keep you informed about the White Flint 2 Sector Plan)
Many questions were asked. The most contentious issue concerned schools, including new schools, wrong school capacity projections, and current school capacity.
M-NCPPC promised to put their presentation and various maps on their website some time today.
