Community Meeting Set for White Flint 2 Sector Plan on Nov. 18
The Montgomery County Planning Department is scheduled to hold a community meeting to discuss the White Flint 2 Sector Plan on Nov. 18 from 6:30 -8:30 p.m. at the Rocking Horse Road Center at 4910 Macon Road in Rockville.
County planners will discuss transportation issues within White Flint 2 and the surrounding area.
The White Flint 2 Plan aims to close the gap between the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan, the Twinbrook Sector Plan and the pending City of Rockville plan for Rockville Pike (MD 355). Its land use, zoning and transportation recommendations will apply to properties in a bow-tie-shaped area between the boundaries of the already established Plans. White Flint 2 will link common elements between the Plan areas, including Rockville Pike and the proposed network of bike lanes and public open spaces.
Planners will be looking at parcels along Executive Boulevard, west of Old Georgetown Road; east of the CSX rail tracks, between Randolph Road and Nicholson Lane; and north of Montrose Parkway along Rockville Pike to the city limits of Rockville. Nicholson Court, which was a part of the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan, will also be included in the proposed plan area.
Challenges of the plan include improving the transportation network, including the redesign of Rockville Pike into a more pedestrian-friendly tree-lined boulevard; integrating land uses on both sides of the CSX tracks and the proposed MARC station; and encouraging mixed-use, walkable developments.
