ROCKVILLE, Md., March 22, 2010—The Montgomery County Council on Tuesday, March 23, is scheduled to take action on the proposed White Flint Sector Plan that would transform the North Bethesda area around Rockville Pike into a more urban and more dense community strongly supported by public transit and designed to make residents and workers less dependent on automobiles.
The Council is scheduled to take action on the plan at its meeting that will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Third Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville. The meeting will be televised live by County Cable Montgomery (CCM—Cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon) and also will be available via streaming through the County Web site at www.montgomerycountymd.gov. The broadcast will be repeated at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 26. 

At 7:30 p.m., the Council will hold two public hearings. One hearing is on Bill 6-10, which is sponsored by Councilmember Marc Elrich and Council President Nancy Floreen. The bill would set different noise level standards for certain arts and entertainment activities. It would also exempt certain noise levels created by certain arts and entertainment activities from being treated as a noise disturbance. In addition, a potential homebuyer would be given notice about entertainment activities near the area. The bill would allow a facility such as Strathmore Hall—which each year conducts at least five outdoor activities, such as concerts or films—to file a noise mitigation plan with the Department of Environmental Protection.

The other public hearing will be on Expedited Bill 7-10, which would authorize the Police Department to deploy new fixed and mobile speed monitoring systems on streets in residential districts with a maximum posted speed of 35 miles per hour and in school zones. The legislation is in response to a law passed by the Maryland General Assembly in 2009 in regard to the use of speed cameras. The Maryland law requires the governing body of a jurisdiction to authorize use of all speed cameras put in place after Oct. 1, 2009
