Glenmont Sector Plan
Draft Vision
• The Glenmont of the future will be a walkable, diverse and sustainable community, with services and amenities primarily for the local residents and workers. The redeveloped Glenmont Shopping Center will be the focus of communityoriented activities and services, with a distinctive identity that creates a sense of place. New compact, mixed-use developments, concentrated in and around the shopping center and the Metro station, will offer expanded housing choices for people of all ages and incomes and provide a variety of open spaces. Existing single-family neighborhoods will be preserved and enhanced. Improved pedestrian and bicycle facilities will provide safe and convenient connections throughout the Sector Plan area.

General Recommendations
• Preserve the existing single-family neighborhoods and protect them from the negative impacts of new development. Encourage development of mid-rise housing units and townhouses on redevelopable property where appropriate to diversify the housing stock. Create a grid network of local streets on the Glenmont Shopping Center and other large redevelopable properties to create shorter blocks that are more conducive to walking and biking Retain the 1997 Sector Plan’s confirmation of the existing R60 Zone for single-family blocks of Georgia Avenue West with recommendation of “suitable for RT-15” Consider the feasibility of establishing a parking lot district in Glenmont to create a more efficient parking system to reduce imperviousness and eliminate redundant parking facilities

General Recommendation
Historic Resources • Evaluate the following resources for potential designation on the Master Plan for Historic Preservation: Glenmont Forest Apartment complex, Glenmont Arcade, Georgia Avenue Baptist Church, WSSC water tower, Montgomery County Police Station Encourage adaptive reuse of extant and potentially historic buildings for benefits of preserving community character and sustaining the environment. Integrate historic resources into redevelopment plans to retain sense of place while allowing for growth.

preliminary recommendations

Glenmont Sector Plan
General Recommendations Parks, Open Spaces, and Community Facilities • Encourage new developments with variety of open space such as parks, plazas, linear greens, playgrounds, that encourage community gathering, picnicking, informal play, and passive and active recreation. Allow for the integration of community gardens into redevelopment sites, public projects, and open spaces where appropriate. If the Kensington Fire Station #18 is not built at the WMATA triangle on Georgia Avenue near Glenallan Avenue, it should be built on the old Glenmont elementary school site at the southwest corner of Georgia Avenue and Randolph Road. Every effort should be made to retain the existing ballfield on the elementary school site. Provide connectors to major trail corridors, Northwest Branch Trail and Matthew Henson Trail.

General Recommendations
Connectivity • Improve the function, safety and quality of sidewalks through street trees, sidewalk green panels, quality pavement, pedestrian lighting and buildings with ground floor retail where appropriate. Confirm the existing master plan ROW of Georgia Avenue and Randolph Road adequate to accommodate future bus rapid transit operation, currently understudy. Preserve restricted access into the singlefamily neighborhood west of Georgia Avenue, at its intersections with Urbana Drive, Judson Road and Sheraton Road. Utilize urban road cross sections from the County Road code for new roads to reduce pedestrian crossing and maintain lower design speeds.

Provide enhanced pedestrian crossing opportunities on Georgia Avenue, Randolph Road, Layhill Road and Glenallan Avenue where appropriate. Seek state designation as a “Bicycle and Pedestrian Priority Area.” Request that MCDOT perform a Traffic Signal Warrant Study to determine if a traffic signal and crosswalks can be installed at Livingston Street and Randolph Road. Designate Glenallan Avenue, as a modified Business District Street with parking on both sides and a Dual Bikeway (including a shared use path and bike lanes).
