The White Flint Community Coalition, a group of residents opposed to the White Flint Sector Plan’s impact on the county’s Annual Growth Policy, has a new web site:
The one-page site lists nine concerns such as no dedicated funding mechanism for White Flint improvements, no plan to increase Metro resources, and possible school redistricting. There is also a link to the Coalition’s earlier statement opposing White Flint plans as part of the Annual Growth Policy. The Coalition urges concerned residents to “express your concerns and opposition to the Planning Board’s actions at the earliest possible date. It is not too late to protect our lifestyles and communities.”
The new web site replaces an earlier subdomain of another web site not connected to the White Flint Sector Plan discussion. A Friends of White Flint news mailing had cited the earlier web address. The placement of the Coalition’s message on the earlier address had caused some consternation and discussion. The Coalition told me that they had not meant to make the connection with the earlier web site.
The Coalition also noted that their message was evolving and not final. Several observers, long associated with the White Flint planning process, expressed concern about a variety of inaccuracies in the Coalition’s posting. Suzanne Hudson, Co-Chair of Friends of White Flint for Residents and Community Associations, told me that the Coalition did not oppose the White Flint Sector Plan, but had some concerns they wanted addressed before the County Council approved the Annual Growth Policy and the White Flint Plan.
