White Flint 2 Sector Plan

New! Due to a very busy month of July at the Planning Board, the White Flint 2 Scope of Work has been rescheduled from the July 30 Planning Board meeting to the September 3 meeting.

June 25 Kick-Off Meeting Presentation

Thank you to everyone who joined us last night at Luxmanor Elementary School. We are working on compiling your feedback and will soon post comment summaries.

Plan Area

The Sector Plan will update a portion of the 1992 North Bethesda/Garrett Park Master Plan and will build upon the recommendations from the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan. The plan will fill in land use and zoning recommendations between White Flint and the City of Rockville. View the plan area map (pdf, 1.5MB).         

Background

The White Flint 2 Sector Plan area covers approximately 290 acres in a horseshoe shape on either side of Rockville Pike (MD 355). The plan area includes office buildings along Executive Boulevard, west of Hoya Street; Montrose Crossing Shopping Center and Pike Center along Rockville Pike; light-industrial and commercial properties along Parklawn Drive, south of Randolph Road; office uses along Executive Boulevard; and Randolph Hills Shopping Center and other light-industrial uses along Parklawn Drive.

Scope of work coverThe planning process initially commenced in the Spring of 2012, and the Planning Board approved a Scope of Work (pdf, 7MB) on April 26, 2012. An updated Scope of Work will be presented to the Planning Board in July 2015.

The White Flint 2 Sector Plan will:

  • Georgetowne ParkRecommend land uses that allow for more long-range redevelopment options.
  • Analyze a segment of Rockville Pike that will contribute to its transformation into an urban boulevard, including rapid transit options.
  • Consider how to better connect both sides of the CSX tracks.
  • Promote parks and open spaces along with bikeway connections between White Flint and the City of Rockville.

Issues

The White Flint 2 Sector Plan will address issues related to growth and development, including:

  • What level of new development can the transportation network support?
  • How should Rockville Pike (MD 355) between the city and County be coordinated and designed?
  • What transportation policies should be introduced or amended?
  • Should the White Flint Special Tax District encompass White Flint Phase 2?
  • How can uses on both sides of the MARC station and CSX tracks be integrated?
  • What is the role of the proposed MARC station and how should nearby properties outside of White Flint Phase I develop?
