Friendship Heights Urban Design Study  

  • People walking along street with retail buildings

Based on community feedback Montgomery Planning received in Spring of 2023, during the initial engagement efforts with Friendship Heights residents and stakeholders, the department has decided to pivot from the narrowly focused Select Sites Zoning Study to a more holistic Urban Design Study with a significant engagement component. Montgomery Planning will be engaging the Friendship Heights community to identify goals and priorities for the future of this urban area and are looking forward to working collaboratively with all stakeholders. 

Staff is currently developing a revised scope of work for presentation to the community and the Montgomery County Planning Board in the coming months. Please stay tuned for more details and be sure to sign up for the Friendship Heights eletter
