The Montgomery County Planning Board will consider the sketch plan at its April 5, 2018 meeting. Planning staff, not surprisingly, is recommending approval of the plan with conditions. One nearby resident who wrote to planners opposing the project included an obituary of former Council president Kathryn E. Diggs, who presided over some of the zoning decisions that allowed such non-compliant buildings as this office tower to pop up in low-density areas across the county.
