During a nearly two-hour worksession yesterday at the Planning Board, Executive Boulevard was the center of attention. The staff presentation was actually a fairly good explanation of what is proposed for Executive Boulevard in the White Flint 2 sector plan. Below you’ll find a few slides that I found particularly illuminating.
There was considerable discussion about the trade-offs between density/height and providing land for a school.
After the Planning Staff presented their data and plans, a number of property owners spoke. Some of the issues they brought up included:
Requesting 200′ height on the Guardian Property so they can create a signature building at the gateway to Excecutive Boulevard.
Many property owners wanted increased density and wanted the Commercial FAR and Residential FAR to be increased so builders have the flexibility to create space that meets the needs of the market
Some property owners mentioned that the proposed 200′ buffer around Neilwood Creek was much larger than anywhere else in the County
6120 and 6130 Executive Boulevard owned by Monument would like a CR or CRT 1.0 zone rather than an EOF zone so it can develop its property and include bike/pedestrian paths to the Luxmanor neighborhood and Montrose Parkway as well as a vehicle entrance to Green Acres school.
