Last Thursday, we had an informative and interesting online community meeting that was incredibly well-attended. We were honored to have both Councilmember Andrew Friedson, Robin Ficker, and Marcelo Cortez from MCDOT join us as our guest speakers.
Robin Ficker and Andrew Friedson gave spirited arguments for why you should vote for either Question A or Question B on how property tax limits are calculated. They also answered numerous questions from our audience. Their conversation was live tweeted by several people and organizations in which @White_Flint was tagged.
Marcelo Cortez updated everyone on the progress of the Western Workaround construction.

Yes, the Subdivision Staging Policy (SSP) sounds dull. IT’S NOT — SERIOUSLY, IT’S ACTUALLY INTERESTING. And it’s critically important. The SSP ensures that transportation and schools keep pace with development in Montgomery County. It’s the reason the White Flint/Pike District area is currently in a building moratorium.
The Planning Department wants to know what you think as it develops the 2020 Subdivision Staging Plan. So please, attend this hour-long meeting, learn about the SSP, and give the Planning Department your feedback.
The meeting will take place Tuesday, February 4, 7:00 pm at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Rd, Rockville, MD 20852. There is free two-hour parking at the conference center.
Here’s the meeting agenda:
7:00 Welcome and introductions
7:05 Presentation on the new North Bethesda
7:15 Advocacy Update: Second Metro Entrance, Rockville Pike Improvements, February 8 Advocacy and Memorial Event
7:20 Presentation and discussion on the Subdivision Staging Policy (SSP) with the Planning Department
