A new Metro parking garage is just one of the ways Glenmont planners hope to maximize that community’s access to public transportation with future development. An update to the Glenmont Sector Plan, designed to create a framework to guide development for the next 15-20 years, is nearing the end of its first stage.
The Montgomery County Planning Board will meet Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. to review a scope of work for the Glenmont Sector Plan update. This scope of work document outlines the purpose of the update, the ways the planners will engage the community, and the project timeline. The planning board meeting will take place at Park and Planning Headquarters, at 8787 Georgia Ave. Silver Spring, MD.
On Feb. 4, planners will hold the first in a series of public workshops for community input about the future of the Glenmont Shopping Center and the surrounding area. The community visioning workshop will take place 8:30 a.m.- 1 p.m. in the Saddlebrook Training Room at the Park Police Headquarters, 12751 Layhill Road, Silver Spring. Spanish interpreters will be available at the meeting.
