Great Seneca Plan: Connecting Life and Science


What do you want your community to look like? What do you love? What is missing?

In 2010, the County created a vision for a dynamic live/work community that would support a globally recognized biotechnology hub in the Shady Grove Life Science Center, through the 2010 Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan (2010 Plan).

A decade later, we are checking in on the vision set in the 2010 Plan and with the community on their experiences, needs, and desires in their neighborhoods.

New! Urban Land Institute Technical Assistance Panel: Montgomery Planning is working with an Urban Land Institute (ULI) Technical Assistance Panel to reimagine the Life Sciences Center and explore ways to transform it into a more connected, walkable, cohesive community for residents and employees. The Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) is comprised of people from all over the region with expertise in design, planning, architecture, engineering, and real estate.

The TAP  program is a 1.5-day exercise in which the panel takes a site tour, conducts stakeholder roundtables, and develops a set of recommendations that address the issues identified by Montgomery Planning. If you are interested in joining a stakeholder roundtable as a resident or employee in the area, fill out the form below with your name, email, phone and a sentence explaining your relationship to the plan area. If you would like to apply to join a community stakeholder interview the afternoon of September 20, 2022, please fill out this form. Contact Maren Hill at or 301.650.5613.

The ULI TAP will present their findings at 4:30 on September 21 at the Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Building at the Universities at Shady Grove (9631 Gudelsky Dr, Rockville, MD 20850). The event is free and open to the public.
