If Montgomery County Council President Nancy Floreen's assertion that the Westbard sector plan is "a 30-year plan" caused you to chuckle, you won't be surprised to learn that the first major project is getting started immediately. Developer Equity One has announced today that it expects to submit a sketch plan to the County planning department within the next few weeks.
This is expected to cover much if not all of Equity One's 22 acres along Westbard Avenue and Ridgefield Road.
The company says it will be meeting with adjacent property owners as part of the sketch plan process. No pre-application community meeting has been announced to the public as of this writing.
