White Flint Sector Plan
Midtown on the Pike
Approved and Adopted April 2010
The Montgomery County Council unanimously approved the White Flint Sector Plan in March 2010.¬†This Sector Plan updates the 1992 North Bethesda Garrett Park Master Plan. Stakeholders including property owners, residents, a steering and an advisory committee, contributed to the Plan vision.
The White Flint Sector Plan aims to:
- Create thriving, diverse mixed use center with highest intensity closest to Metro and along Rockville Pike
- Create new parks and open spaces
- Transform Rockville Pike into a boulevard with street trees and improved crosswalks
- Develop a transportation network that includes a grid of new public streets
- Improve the pedestrian and bicycling environment
- Promote sustainable development
In 2010 the Plan won the “Neighborhood/Small Area Plan Award” from the National Capital Area chapter of the American Planning Association. The Plan also received a 2012 Maryland Sustainable Growth Award-Smart Growth Communities for White Flint implementation strategies.
