Bethesda Sector Plan Unlikely To Be Expedited, Other Options Remain


A group of residents and community leaders hoping to see Montgomery County push up a revision of Bethesda's aging master plan likely won't have much luck, according to Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center director Ken Hartman. But after feedback from County Council members who received the Woodmont Triangle Action Group's letter asking to expedite the 1994 Sector Plan revision process, Hartman said there are alternative options that could address concerns. One would be a discussion on public amenities, which some say are lacking as Bethesda continues to welcome new residential apartment and condominium projects. The other would be a functional amendment process regarding Bethesda's many one-way streets. That could occur before the Sector Plan revision, which is slated to start in 2014 and could take years to complete. A number of Sector Plan revisions are ahead of Bethesda making it unlikely that it will be moved up, Hartman said Friday at the most recent meeting of the Woodmont Triangle Action Group.
