Thrive Montgomery 2050

In the words of Montgomery County:
"Thrive Montgomery 2050 is the long-awaited update to our county’s General Plan—the policy document that envisions what the future of Montgomery County could look like when we come together to realize an equitable vision that works for all of us.

The Wedges and Corridors Plan has served the county well in the past, but a new plan was needed to better meet the evolving needs and changing demographics of Montgomery County. As the first update to the General Plan in nearly 60 years, Thrive Montgomery 2050 gives us a clear path forward: to create places where we can increase accessible housing, improve transit, and strengthen businesses together in equitable, sustainable ways. The plan was approved by the Planning Board on April 8, 2021, and approved by the Montgomery County Council on October 25, 2022."

The approved and adopted plan:
