Thrive Montgomery 2050 Top Issues

The first step toward developing the Thrive Montgomery 2050 update to Montgomery County’s General Plan was to identify the issues facing Montgomery County so we can plan for the future. The December 2019 Issues Briefing staff report is a preliminary draft of the major issues to be addressed through the General Plan update.

The identified issues all relate to Thrive Montgomery 2050’s three primary outcomes of equitable communities, economic health and environmental resilience. In February 2020, a final Issues Report will be released and in Spring 2020 Montgomery Planning staff will propose Goals and Policies – recommendations for tackling these issues in the new General Plan.

Before we take any next steps, let us know if we’ve hit the mark on the main issues facing the future of Montgomery County. Your ideas and input helped to form the draft Issues Briefing. Now, we need your feedback to ensure we’re on the right track. Review the Issues Briefing staff report then tell us: What did we get right? What did we get wrong? What did we miss?
