Fairland and Briggs Chaney Master Plan

The Fairland and Briggs Chaney Master Plan will outline goals, policies and strategies to address future challenges in our community.  We will not only need to make room for growth, jobs and new residents, but also improve the quality of life for people already living here.  As part of this process, we will examine the community’s population, economy, housing, transportation, public facilities, and more.  Together, we will take the necessary steps to become more prosperous, equitable, and resilient as we create memorable places that are inclusive, environmentally sustainable, and economically competitive.

Current Phase of the Plan: Approved by Planning Board, transmitted to County Council

The Planning Board approved the Fairland and Briggs Chaney Master Plan on May 25, 2023. The Plan’s key recommendations are listed below, representing the plan’s overall vision over the next 10-20 years as a better-connected community, with high-quality transit, accessible and comfortable parks, trails and pathways, thriving households and businesses, attractive places to gather for all ages, and a sustainable environment.

The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing for the plan on Wednesday, September 27 at 7 p.m., at the East County Community Recreation Center. Sign up to tesify.
