Guidelines will complement existing high-quality streetscapes
WHEATON, MD – The Montgomery County Planning Department, part of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), will partner with the Friends of White Flint to host a virtual meeting to review the Pike District Streetscape Guidelines on Thursday, October 21 from 7 to 8 p.m. These guidelines will complement the Pike District’s existing high-quality streetscape and mixed-use developments that have been constructed since the adoption of the White Flint Sector Plan in 2010 and will provide direction to future developments. The guidelines are being produced as part of the Advancing the Pike District initiative, which is sparking implementation of the White Flint Sector Plan by identifying short-term development opportunities that can be implemented within the next two to five years. RSVPs are required to attend the meeting.

Pike District Connector
The Montgomery County Planning Department partnered with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation, Montgomery Parks, and the Better Block Foundation to temporarily connect the Bethesda Trolley Trail to the Montrose Parkway Trail and activate hubs at key intersections along the trail connection. The project, called the Pike District Connector, was built with community volunteers and included a kickoff community bike ride with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) on September 18. The Connector will remain in place through late fall 2021.
About Advancing the Pike District
Advancing the Pike District is a Montgomery Planning initiative to accelerate the transformation of White Flint’s core into a walkable, mixed-use district by identifying short- and medium-term implementation-focused solutions that build on the Sector Plan’s recommendations, enhance mobility, and promote economic development, urban design and placemaking. The project revisits and builds upon the recommendations from the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan, which has guided infrastructure improvements and development in the White Flint area over the past decade, with the goal of accelerating White Flint’s transformation.
