Councilmembers and Planning Board Chair Question MCPS About Capacity Plans

Local leaders are asking questions in hopes of assuring constituents there is room for more development in the Bethesda area.
Montgomery County Council President George Leventhal, Education Committee Chair Craig Rice, District 1 Councilmember Roger Berliner and Planning Board Chair Casey Anderson sent a letter to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Acting Superintendent Larry Bowers to ask about the school system’s plans to address future capacity needs in the Bethesda-area school clusters of Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Walter Johnson and Walt Whitman.
Leventhal talked about the importance of the letter at his weekly briefing on Nov. 30th.

  1. You think schools and classrooms are over capacity now (120% - 180%)... Just watch as developer-funded Montgomery County Councilmembers cite the move in Gaithersburg to increase the (Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance standard (APFO) from the current 120% school capacity standards to as high as 150% and follow that lead. This will enable county development to continue unabated without going into moratorium, but will kill the county's schools.
