Chevy Chase Lake: Planning Board Draft Text


Last night (Thursday, January 10) the Planning Board addressed all remaining issues with the Sector Plan that were raised during the Public Hearing.  These changes have been incorporated into a draft text of the Planning Board Draft Sector Plan.  The Board will review this text next Thursday, January 17, at Worksession 5.  During this worksession, the Board will make any other changes, and we will be asking the Board to approve the Planning Board Draft for transmission to the County Executive and County Council.

The draft text, in both a red-lined version (from the public hearing draft text) and a clean version, will be available by the end of the day Friday, January 11, on the Planning Board’s agenda page for January 17, item 17:

If the Board approves the text for transmittal, we expect to transmit the full document no later than Friday, January 25.  I will send out an e-mail with the link when it is up.

The last remaining scheduled worksession is Worksession 6, on January 31.  This worksession will feature a more comprehensive review of the design guidelines.  If you have questions or comments about the design guidelines, please contact Margaret Rifkin, at 301.495.4583 or

If you have questions about anything else, please let me know.  Have a delightful weekend.
