The Montgomery County Council’s Planning, Housing, and Economic Development (PHED) Committee will meet in the Seventh Floor Council Hearing Room at 2 p.m. on Monday, October 23 to review the White Flint 2 Sector Plan. A public hearing on White Flint 2 was held on September 19, and the PHED Committee reviewed the public school and transportation adequacy of the plan in an October 9 meeting. This meeting will focus on land use and housing, particularly on affordable housing.
The PHED Committee is chaired by Councilmember Floreen and includes Councilmember Leventhal and Council Vice President Riemer.
The White Flint 2 Sector Plan complements the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan, whose goal is to create a thriving, diverse mixed-use center close to Metro and along Rockville Pike in the White Flint area, as well as adding community parks and improving conditions for cycling and pedestrians. The 460-acre, bowtie-shaped White Flint 2 Sector Plan recommends opportunities for infill and transitional development at key locations, transforming commercial properties along the Pike into mixed-use urban spaces.
