MVMatters Community Meeting

Thank you to all who attended MVMatters! Since December, staff has collected many concerns, ideas and thoughts on the future of Montgomery Village. Our outreach efforts included graffiti boards, community meetings, and much more, so thank you for telling us what matters most to the future of your Village. MVPlan has presented staff recommendations to the community on July 7, 2015. Next steps include presentation of the working draft [PDF] to the Planning Board on July 23, 2015, and public hearing scheduled on September 10, 2015.

What is MVMatters?
MVMatters is a series of outreach [PDF] events to engage the community in the Master Plan. Planners have heard what residents view as the most valuable places in the Village, what matters most to the (re)development in the Village. Each evening began with a status update for the Master Plan and continued with discussion from one or more of the following topics: residential, commercial center and the former golf course zoning options, open space, connectivity and a proposed overlay zone for Montgomery Village. Breakout groups were utilized to discuss and brainstorm the preliminary options from staff regarding recommendations for the future of the Village.

Thank you for attending the last community meeting, MV Matters #7. The MVPlan team presented staff's master plan recommendations to the community. Please click here for staff's presentation.

Like it, Love it, Change it!

Like it, Love It, Change It is a tool in which Montgomery County Staff is engaging the citizens who live, work and play in Montgomery Village to identify what is Montgomery Village. Is it the open space? Is it the way the streets are laid out? To further the vision of the master plan efforts, we are asking everyone to define what is liked and loved about Montgomery Village and to define in their eyes what is your town. Staff would also like to know what needs changed, and perhaps an example given to say “this is what we want place X to look like.”
