Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan

Testimony to County Council, March 5, 2013
Presented by Board Member Ted Van Houten

The Action Committee for Transit offers the following comments regarding the draft Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan, the site of a future Purple Line station. We appreciate the work of the planning staff to assemble a comprehensive vision for the community, and we recognize their outreach efforts to gain the perspective and input of residents, developers, property owners, and local officials.

There’s a lot to like about the sector plan:

While we would like to see a higher density of residences than what the Sector Plan allows, we recognize the compromise inherent in the plan and encourage its support. Thank you for the opportunity to provide comments.
