At its meeting last night, the Friends of White Flint Board of Directors reviewed the staff draft of the White Flint Sector Plan to be discussed by the Montgomery County Planning Board at its June 18, 2009 meeting. The Board discussed several issues with the draft Plan, especially the section on implementation and staging of capital and transportation improvements, which will be the subject of much attention by the Planning Board on Thursday. Nevertheless, the FoWF Board felt that the draft Plan, overall, was well worth supporting.
I have just sent Planning Board Chairman Royce Hanson a letter on behalf of Friends of White Flint, drafted by the Board at last night’s meeting, in which we strongly support enactment of the draft Plan. We also note that we will suggest improvements by July 2, 2009. As part of the process for developing the FoWF position for the July 2 letter, the Board will hold a meeting at 4:30PM on Monday, June 22, at Federal Realty, 1626 E. Jefferson, to discuss specific issues and possible improvements to the Plan. All Friends are welcome to attend and participate.
