Development is underway in the Bethesda and White Flint urban areas. The following maps provide general information about approved and proposed development in those areas. For more detailed information about local master plans and development proposals, visit the Planning Board website.

Bethesda Development

The Planning Board has appointed the Woodmont Triangle Action Group to coordinate and monitor the progress of development, retail revitalization, and the provision of amenities and facilities in the Woodmont Triangle district of downtown Bethesda. Creation of the Action Group was a recommendation of the 2006 Woodmont Triangle Amendment to the Sector Plan for the Bethesda CBD.

Membership includes representatives from the M-NCPPC, the Bethesda Urban Partnership, Civic Associations, Bethesda Transportation Solutions, the Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board, and other appropriate groups.

The Action Group usually meets on the 2nd Friday of every month, 8:00 a.m. at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda, 20814.  If you have questions contact Karen Thon at 240-777-8210.
