Pretty major news. It was made official yesterday. The county council unanimously approved the plan that could shape Montgomery County's future and significantly up-zone parts of the county.

"Thrive Montgomery 2050 promotes housing for all residents by supporting a diversity of housing types to meet the unique needs of residents; supports the strengthening of tenant protections to ensure healthy and fair housing; and supports the creation of neighborhood stabilization strategies for communities of color. The plan also highlights the need for strategies and partnerships to address the digital divide and bring network resources to vulnerable communities. Thrive Montgomery 2050 is a foundational document that provides comprehensive information and tools for implementation of the plan’s recommendations."

Lookin out for this project that's been on the boards for years for east county. Viva White Oak. It would really inject some vibrancy into east county.

This blog mentions that they are close to starting construction. I don't travel on Cherry Hill Road into Silver Spring often. So, I have not seen any activity.

Expect to see some progress over the next 10 years.

I think this is great. I'd love to live in Montgomery County but there is a dearth of single level housing. I don't expect this plan to benefit me but at least it will benefit people like me in the future.

Thanks for posting this.

Greg

Between Viva White Oak and Konterra, what's the over/under which one will start to finally get build up first?

My guess is Konterra. An article three months ago:

Quote:
Gingles said the town houses and apartments would be followed in late 2023 or early 2024 by construction of an adjoining 40-acre entertainment district, which would border I-95.

Rich McCoy, executive vice president of Konterra Realty, said the district could include a cinema, indoor race car track, golf facility, video game center and rope climbing venue.

“We’re very hopeful that we will land a high-end grocer,” Gingles added.
