Did you miss last week’s Online Community Meeting?

Last Thursday, we had an informative and interesting online community meeting that was incredibly well-attended. We were honored to have both Councilmember Andrew Friedson, Robin Ficker, and Marcelo Cortez from MCDOT join us as our guest speakers.

Robin Ficker and Andrew Friedson gave spirited arguments for why you should vote for either Question A or Question B on how property tax limits are calculated. They also answered numerous questions from our audience. Their conversation was live tweeted by several people and organizations in which @White_Flint was tagged.

Marcelo Cortez updated everyone on the progress of the Western Workaround construction.

If you couldn’t attend our meeting, fear not. You can watch the recording at your leisure.

Will we see you online May 19 at our Community Meeting?

Friends of White Flint and Montgomery County Planning Department will hold an online public meeting at 7 p.m. on May 19 to discuss the Advancing the Pike District project.

This project builds on the vision established by the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan and will analyze elements of urban design, economic development, and transportation in the Pike District. This project is intended to spark further implementation by identifying short-term opportunities for success that can be implemented within the next 2-5 years to further the development of White Flint.

The meeting will be streamed online and will be posted to the project webpage following the event. A link to the online meeting will be posted on our blog and on the Planning Department’s website before the event.

Come to our next Community Meeting Feb. 4

Yes, the Subdivision Staging Policy (SSP) sounds dull. IT’S NOT! And it’s critically important. The SSP ensures that transportation and schools keep pace with development in Montgomery County. It’s the reason the White Flint/Pike District area is currently in a building moratorium.

The Planning Department wants to know what you think as it develops the 2020 Subdivision Staging Plan. So please, attend this hour-long meeting, learn about the SSP, and give the Planning Department your feedback.

The meeting will take place Tuesday, February 4, 7 pm at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Rd, Rockville, MD 20852. There is free two-hour parking at the conference center.

(Thank you to the Conference Center for donating the space for this meeting.)
