Montgomery General Plan Update

Image: Montgomery Planning

Thrive Montgomery 2050 will be a visionary, living document laying out how Montgomery County grow, as well as respond to future opportunities and challenges. Although the General Plan will not have legal authority, it lays the groundwork for all future Master Plans and implementing its goals and policy recommendations will guide the future policy agenda on housing, land use, and transit issues.

The Montgomery County Planning Board has reviewed the draft plan and transmits the new version to the County Council in early April 2021. We are strongly supportive of this version and urge the Council to support it. The County Council will have their own community input process and work sessions, resulting in a vote on the final plan in the end of 2021.
