The Coalition for Smarter Growth (CSG) is hosting a walking tour that explores White Flint’s rapidly developing strides in livability and walkability on Saturday, May 12 from 10:00 am to 12 noon.

Featured speakers include District 1 Councilmember Roger Berliner; Chris Conklin, Deputy Director for Transportation Policy; Ken Hartman, Director, Regional Services Center; Mickey Papillon, Vice President – General Manager, Pike & Rose; Amy Ginsburg, Executive Director of Friends of White Flint; and Pete Tomao, Montgomery County Advocacy Manager – Coalition for Smarter Growth.

As the new Pike & Rose development moves forward and residents make headway on more accessible, visible crosswalks through our Pike District Pedestrian Safety Campaign (PikePeds,)  you’ll see firsthand what’s changed and what’s left to be done to make White Flint more resident- and pedestrian-friendly.

Come along as Coalition for Smarter Growth, Friends of White Flint, and County officials revisit the site of Montgomery’s premier suburban retrofit. You’ll learn about PikePeds’ successful community efforts for safer streets, Phase 2 of the Pike & Rose project, and more upcoming developments that will shape the future of this transit-accessible neighborhood.

Walk with CSG to explore the past, present, and future of this emerging hub of development!

CSG tours are active, so please wear sturdy shoes and sunscreen, and bring a water bottle!

I walk almost every day through Pike & Rose with my little dog. Want you to know that I think it is looking spectacular! There are new businesses coming on board all the time and the ornaments on buildings and the pots full of flowers,etc. are really beautiful. We who live nearby are thrilled with this “new urbanism”. Still wishing the crossing light east to west on 355 was about double the length and cars could be kept on the perimeters. However, kudos to you, Amy for being always upbeat and forward looking.
