TOD Plans Approved in White Flint

Montgomery County officials have approved plans to build an extensive new transit-oriented neighborhood at the area around the White Flint Metro stop in North Bethesda, Maryland. The plan is one of the largest in the D.C. area since the 1950s.

50,000 people are projected to work in the new development, and planners are hoping to convince at least half of them to commute by a means other than driving.

Miranda S. Spivack writes, "The area, in a section of suburban Montgomery that developers call North Bethesda, is already served by Metrorail and is slated for a new MARC rail station. Eventually, it is to have its own civic green, circulator bus system, bike paths and walkways connecting communities and commercial centers."

Locals are of course concerned about the impact of the new development on parking and traffic.
