Kensington is located at a critical crossroads within Montgomery County’s road network. An informal, but important east-west road system crosses Connecticut Avenue, a vital north-south artery, in the center of town. Kensington offers a full range of neighborhood service and retail opportunities for its residents. It provides housing for a range of ages and incomes, from small apartments near Antique Row to stately single-family houses in the historic district and housing targeted to older residents. The 2012 Kensington Sector Plan envisions a mixed-use Town Center with pedestrian-friendly connections to the vibrant neighborhoods that define Kensington. It creates a framework for the Town Center to become a lively and active place with streets that are welcoming and comfortable for residents, workers, and visitors, reachable by walking and bicycle from Kensington’s neighborhoods.
