The Approved and Adopted Master Plan is available.
Montgomery Village is a 2,435-acre planned community that was created in 1965 based on “new town” principles and the County’s General Plan, which identified the Gaithersburg area as a “corridor city. Montgomery Village is located in the center of Montgomery County, east of I-270 and north of I-370, adjacent to the City of Gaithersburg. Montgomery Village is served by several roadways, including its Main Street, Montgomery Village Avenue and is a well-establish community with 40,000 residents. The Village is primarily a residential community with several locally serving retail centers. One of its most unique aspects is the extensive recreational opportunities, which are available to all Montgomery Village residents by virtue of automatic membership in the Montgomery Village Foundation.
The Master Plan builds on the assets of Montgomery Village through five major recommendations:
In 2015, a significant milestone occurred for Montgomery Village’s Town Sector zone due to the following language in the Zoning Ordinance “…application for reclassification shall not be permitted until 50 years after the grant of the town sector zone.” Essentially that meant zones other than Town Sector (TS) can be considered and applied for after 2015. This Plan addressed the Town Sector Zone (which was retained and not modified by the Zoning Rewrite) by recommending all land within the Master Plan area to be rezoned. Approximately 95% of the zoning recommendations preserve the existing uses and densities within the Village and these areas were designated to be a comparable zone to what was “on the ground” when the Master Plan was in progress.
