The Montgomery County Planning Board will gather Jan. 12 to hear public comment on the drafted White Flint 2 Sector Plan.

The meeting will take place in the planning department’s auditorium at 8787 Georgia Ave. in Silver Spring, although the start time hasn’t yet been announced.

The plan covers 460 acres around Rockville Pike and Montrose Road, and recommends the construction of 5,700 new homes. It calls for another 2.77 million square feet of nonresidential development and is projected to boost the number of jobs in the area from 19,638 to 27,831.

The goal is to convert shopping strips into mixed-use centers along Rockville Pike, encourage more walking and biking, establish new parks and promote energy-efficiency.

The planning board is expected to hold work sessions in January and February. If approved by the board, the plan would go to the Montgomery County Council for consideration.
