    Description Planning Department staff prepares the Biennial Master Plan Monitoring Report every other year for the Planning Board’s review and transmittal to the County Council and County Executive. This report addresses the implementation progress of the White Flint Sector Plan, Shady Grove Sector Plan and Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan. This is the third Biennial Monitoring Report; the first report was prepared in June 2013.

    Staff Recommendation Transmit the report to the County Council and County Executive.

    Summary The 2017 Biennial Master Plan Monitoring Report provides a comprehensive summary of the efforts to implement the following three plans in the I-270 Corridor area:

     2010 White Flint Sector Plan,  2010 Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan,  2006 Shady Grove Sector Plan.

    This report provides a detailed review of each plan’s implementation efforts, including development approvals, public amenities and facilities, transportation, and recommendations to further the implementation of each plan. The White Flint Sector Plan and the Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan require biennial monitoring and reporting to the Council. The Shady Grove Sector Plan does not have a reporting requirement, but it has a staging plan that has been included in the two prior reports and significant public infrastructure is required for this plan.

    This report seeks to:

     Satisfy the Council’s requirements for monitoring and reporting on plan implementation.  Provide input for the County Executive’s next proposed Capital Improvements Program.  Demonstrate the extent to which the visions in these plans are being realized.  Demonstrate the extent to which the staging elements in these plans are successfully

    regulating build-out.  Ensure transparency regarding plan implementation activities.

    All three plans seek to change single-use commercial or industrial areas and auto-oriented areas into a mixed-use and urban environment with complementary public amenities and facilities to support these new communities. Each area has seen some changes based on recommendations in these plans.

    The staging requirements have allowed for monitoring and management of development to ensure that current and future infrastructure can support the new development. The Implementation Advisory Committees for the three plan areas have been an important conduit for ongoing public engagement.

    To enter stage 2 for each plan, the staging requirements of stage 1 must be completed. None of the plans have advanced from stage 1 to stage 2. In the White Flint Sector Plan, a key stage one trigger has been achieved—the NADMS goal of 34 percent—and progress has been made on the realignment of the Old Georgetown Road and Executive Boulevard.

    In the Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan, funding the Corridor Cities Transitway and attaining the Plan’s mode share goals are essential next steps. In the Shady Grove Sector Plan, priorities include relocating the school bus depot and funding major intersection/interchange improvements.

    This report provides a comprehensive update on the implementation of three Approved and Adopted Master Plans: the 2010 White Flint Sector Plan, the 2010 Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan, and the 2006 Shady Grove Sector Plan. Both the White Flint and Great Seneca plans require monitoring reports, while Shady Grove does not require a reporting requirement. The Shady Grove plan, however, does require significant public investment for new infrastructure and it is a staged plan like White Flint and Great Seneca.

    These plans envision new communities that transition from primarily suburban forms and single-use areas, either commercial or industrial, into greater emphasis on mixed-uses; improved street and bikeway connections; new parks and open spaces; and additional public amenities and facilities. It is anticipated that these changes will take many years or decades to be fully implemented. Over time, these changes will contribute towards neighborhoods that are more environmentally sustainable and economically resilient.

    This and subsequent reports will provide the Planning Board, County Council and County Executive with guidance towards the public expenditures necessary to support the ongoing infrastructure requirements for each plan area.

    Since the 2015 monitoring report, new project approvals have slowed down in White Flint. Pike & Rose has completed its first phase and the second phase is under construction. No other private property is under construction. The implementation of a grid of streets is underway with the first phase of the Western Workaround and a new protected bikeway has been implemented. A new garage is under construction a
