Takoma Park Minor Master Plan Amendment

Montgomery Planning (M-NCPPC) is partnering with the City of Takoma Park to re-envision the Washington Adventist Hospital Campus and surrounding areas over the next two years. To do this, we need your valuable input.

The Takoma Park Minor Master Plan Amendment will update a small portion of the 2000 Takoma Park Master Plan, which creates a comprehensive view of land use trends and future development. This Minor Master Plan Amendment will look at opportunities for the best use of the Washington Adventist Hospital campus and surrounding area along Maple Avenue based on the needs of property owners, residents, and the local government. It also creates the potential for increased public amenities and benefits such as improved access, parks and open space, and additional community facilities.

The plan boundary has not yet been finalized by the Montgomery Planning Board. This boundary represents a general area of focus

As part of the plan’s initial kick-off, Montgomery Planning staff presented the minor master plan amendment process and its anticipated time frame to the Takoma Park City Council on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. The plan’s Scope of Work and the Plan Area Boundary Report are expected to be completed by September 2021 during the pre-planning phase.

We will work with the community to achieve a plan that incorporates the needs of stakeholders, anticipates changes to come, and retains the unique character and diversity of the area. Our engagement will begin with a Listening Phase, which will involve gathering feedback from relevant stakeholders to inform the shape and methods of engagement throughout the planning process.  This process will incorporate in-person and virtual community meetings that will be crafted to address the specific needs of the community.

We will include all of our upcoming Takoma Park Minor Master Plan Amendment events on this page and you can stay up-to-date by subscribing to our eLetter.
