ROCKVILLE, Md., January 14, 2014—The Montgomery County Council on Wednesday, Jan. 15, will continue its review on the first proposed major changes in the County Zoning Ordinance since 1978. The Council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee held numerous worksessions over the past six months on revisions that were recommended by the County’s Planning Board. The Council had its first full-day worksession today.

The Council’s worksession is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. and then continue at 1:30 p.m. after a lunch break. The worksession will be held in the Third Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville and will be televised live by County Cable Montgomery (CCM—Cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon). The broadcast also will be streamed through the Council web site at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/Council.

The Council has also reserved Thursday, Jan. 16, and Tuesday, Jan. 21, for worksessions regarding the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite. A final vote on the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite is tentatively planned by the end of February.

The PHED Committee, which is chaired by Nancy Floreen and includes Councilmembers Marc Elrich and George Leventhal, held its final review on Dec. 9. The committee has provided the Council with its recommendations on Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) 13-04 and District Map Amendment (DMA) G-956.

The updated proposed zoning rewrite draft includes approximately 120 changes suggested by the PHED Committee to the recommendations of the Planning Board.

The PHED Committee held 13 worksessions on the rewrite. The recommended changes can be viewed at www.zoningmontgomery.org . The updated draft includes recommendations the PHED Committee made after the Council heard from more than 80 speakers at an additional public held in November on the zoning rewrite.
