Councilmember Trachtenberg’s Statement on the Plan

Last week, the FLOG invited Montgomery County Councilmembers to provide statements about the White Flint Sector Plan. Here is the statement sent to the FLOG by Councilmember Duchy Trachtenberg, a resident of White Flint:

I am very pleased at the Council’s strong affirmative vote in support of the White Flint Sector Plan.  During its consideration, we witnessed a very strong, effective and positive collaborative effort among key community stakeholders which has resulted in an exciting plan for a safe, healthy, and pedestrian friendly urban community.  This “partnership” with the community stands as a model for future master plans in Montgomery County.

With this effort, we have worked hard to design a plan which promotes growth, respects established neighborhoods, and incorporates innovative and environmentally-friendly solutions for traffic and mobility.

Our work, however, is not over.  I look forward to working with my Council colleagues on the development of a sustainable financing plan for the White Flint plan area and a development coordination mechanism which will give comfort to our neighbors and the business community about infrastructure and financing issues.
