One of the innovations of the White Flint Sector Plan process was the use of “design guidelines” to supplement traditional master plan development. The Planning Board describes the Design Guidelines as: “White Flint Design Guidelines make specific recommendations for streets, open spaces and buildings within the White Flint Sector Plan. The draft guidelines promote an attractive and successful public realm defined by streets, open spaces, and attractive buildings.” Now the Planning Board is using design guidelines in a variety of projects.
The White Flint Guidelines have been promised for years, and now they have finally appeared, in an attractive, photograph-illustrated version, available here:
The White Flint Steering Committee is scheduled to discuss the Guidelines on Tuesday, May 5, at 7PM in the Silver Spring auditorium, 8787 Georgia Avenue.
