On Tuesday, March 23, 2010, the Montgomery County Council will vote on approval of the White Flint Sector Plan. This is the culmination of a four-year planning process which has included thousands of area residents. The Plan envisions a walkable, sustainable, transit-oriented urban community replacing the existing automobile-dominated, parking lot-covered, overhead wire-strewn White Flint of today.
On March 2, the Council had a “straw vote” on the Plan, which would have approved the Plan unanimously. Today, the Council staff revealed the actual resolution on which the Council will vote. The resolution includes all the previous recommendations of the Council and its Committees, ranging from significant (placement of a new school site south of White Flint Mall) to the trivial (renaming “Old” Old Georgetown Rd. as “Hoya Street”).
