Montgomery Council Committee to Discuss ZTA on Commercial/Residential Zones
Also on Monday, Jan. 11: SilverPlace in Silver Spring


ROCKVILLE, Md., January 8, 2010—The Montgomery County Council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee on Monday, January 11, will continue its discussions on Zoning Text Amendment 09-08 that would establish commercial/residential zones.

The PHED Committee, which is chaired by Mike Knapp and includes Councilmembers Marc Elrich and Nancy Floreen, will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Seventh Floor Conference Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville.

Commercial/residential zones permit a mix of residential and non-residential uses at varying densities and heights. The zones promote economically, environmentally and socially sustainable development patterns where people can live, work and have access to services and amenities while minimizing the need for automobile use. The zones would encourage an appropriate balance of employment and housing opportunities and compatible relationships with adjoining neighborhoods.

The PHED Committee also will address a request by the County Planning Board to reflect a change in the funding source for the proposed SilverPlace mixed use project that would include a new home in Silver Spring for the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission headquarters. The request would change the funding source from Certificates of Participation to County current revenue and Park and Planning current revenue.
