The next meeting of the White Flint Steering Committee will be held on Wednesday, January 28, 2009, at 4:30 PM. The meeting will be held in the same place as the prior meeting: Federal Realty Investment Trust, 1626 East Jefferson Street, Rockville (behind Congressional Plaza).
A special guest will be County Council Member Marc Elrich, who will be presenting his proposal for Bus Rapid Transit in Montgomery County. BRT, which involves a special kind of bus service using dedicated lanes, is a topic of discussion in urban planning areas around the country, and the White Flint Advisory Group report made a recommendation that the Planning Board discuss BRT.
Other topics include further discussions of topics projected to be discussed in Planning Board work sessions, including sustainability, economics, land use and zoning.
The public is welcome. For more information, contact Evan Goldman, co-chair of Friends of White Flint. firstname.lastname@example.org.
