The Future of Washington Grove is Being Planned……
And you can have a say! Due to the foresight and diligence of those who have gone before us, the Town is fortunate to have its own planning and zoning authority. The Town’s Master Plan is an important part of that privilege and responsibility. Our Master Plan is revised every ten years to make sure it continues to accurately reflect what Washington Grove needs. We are looking for residents to be part of Ad Hoc Advisory Groups for the 2019 Master Plan. Would you be interested in working on any of the following topics?
Land Use and Zoning
Municipal Growth areas
Town Boundary Enhancements
Street and Walkway lights (a very hot topic now as our current lights are becoming literally irreplaceable!)
Washington Grove Lane
Designated Parks and Green Space
Storm Water Management
Long Term Vision for the Commercial Corner
Development and Preservation Strategies
Connections with Neighbors and Viewsheds
Town Crest Issues
Emergency Preparedness and Hazard Mitigation
You can see the current Master Plan by going to:
Once there click on the green 2009 Master Plan and a PDF version will come up.
If any or all of these topics are of interest please call or email Georgette Cole (301-330-6740 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to become part of an Ad Hoc Advisory Group or an existing committee. We will assemble these groups by August 13 and your group will submit your recommendations by September 24. The final Master Plan to be sent to the Town Council for review and approval will be compiled by the Planning Commission based on input from the Planning Commission members, the Town Committees and the Ad Hoc Advisory Groups.
Thanks for your interest and support!
