Submitted Minor Master Plan Amendment Application

Park Now for South Silver Spring

Property owners and community groups in Montgomery County were invited in April 2012 to submit applications for minor master plan amendments to be considered by the Planning Board and County Council. The amendment process allows anyone who would like the Planning Board and County Council to revisit certain aspects of a master plan to address current community priorities, changing circumstances, or issues that were not considered in an existing master plan.

Brian Holland

Current zoning: CBD-1 (Central Business District)
Request: The amendment seeks to designate the .94 acre parcel of land, located on Newell Street between Eastern Avenue and Kennett Street (current address 8001 Newell Street) as park land. The Silver Spring Central Business District Sector Plan (CBD) of 2000 presents a "Green Downtown" theme to enhance the quality of life for South Silver Spring residents. Specifically, the Green Downtown theme calls for a "well-placed green park" directly in the South Silver Spring neighborhood. The proposed amendment is intended to address the vision of Newell Street as a "Green Street"
