The Approved and Adopted 2013 Glenmont Sector Plan amends the Approved and Adopted 1997 Sector Plan for the Glenmont Transit Impact Area and Vicinity. The New Sector Plan assesses what has changed in Glenmont since 1997, re-evaluates past recommendations, and reflects the community’s vision for a transit-oriented, revitalized community.
The Plan, which covers approximately 700 acres around the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Randolph Road, establishes a transit-oriented planning framework for properties around the Glenmont Metro Station. The Plan rezones the Glenmont Shopping Center for a higher density, mixed-uses to encourage redevelopment and revitalization. The Plan also provides opportunities for mixed-use developments on larger sites around the shopping center will expand housing choices for people of all ages and incomes, and provide a variety of open spaces with some retail and commercial uses in appropriate locations.
While Glenmont has seen some significant public investments — the Glenmont Metro Station was completed in 1998, a Metro parking garage was completed in 2012, a grade-separated interchange at Randolph Road and Georgia Avenue is underway, a new fire station, a new elementary school and a new high school. With the adoption of this Plan, Glenmont is now poised to evolve into a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly community.
