Montgomery Planning Launches MCReactMap for Advancing the Pike District Project

The Montgomery County Planning Department recently launched an online outreach tool, called the MCReactMap, at our virtual community meeting, to allow residents and stakeholders to provide feedback about the Advancing the Pike District study area.

Advancing the Pike District is a Montgomery Planning initiative to accelerate the transformation of White Flint’s core into a walkable, mixed-use district by identifying short- and medium-term implementation-focused solutions that build on the Sector Plan’s recommendations, enhance mobility, and promote economic development, urban design and placemaking.

Using the hashtags #LoveIt, #FixIt, #NeedIt, people can text their concerns and comments about what they love about the Pike District community and what is missing or needs improvement in these areas.  This map allows people to make comments, interact with other community members and provide feedback on the project area. Map users are invited to tell planners what they like about the area, what they think needs improvement and what they think is missing through the platform. Community members can also respond to prompts that will be placed in the community via text that will be displayed on the map.

Clicking on the pins on the digital map reveals questions to answer about different neighborhoods within the plan area. Visitors can also respond to other comments they agree or disagree with. Other features include a language translation tool as well as street views of the plan area and social media sharing options. Standard message and data rates may apply.
