More development in WJ Cluster

The Planning Board, which is appointed by the County Council, is starting another Master Plan along the Pike Grovesnor-Strathmore. Staff is introducing the Scope of Work at the Planning Board today.

From the Scope of Work:
"The Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro Area Minor Master Plan Amendment will address approximately 105 acres of land located on the east side of Rockville Pike (MD 355), from Rock Creek Park to the south, to Strathmore Avenue to the north."

Community Facilities The 2016 Subdivision Staging Policy indicates that the Walter Johnson cluster is close to a moratorium for all school levels.  Additional residential development and the pace of its delivery will affect the Walter Johnson cluster, as well as the adjacent Downcounty Consortium secondary schools.  This planning process will assess the impact to the cluster from proposed residential development in the minor master plan area, given anticipated residential development elsewhere in the cluster.

According to the Scope of Work, a meeting was held on July 7, which included Walter Johnson cluster representatives, but that information never appeared in the WJHS listservs.
