On both sides of the Maryland and DC border private, government and community stakeholders are coming together to plan for a future vision of a sustainable, livable Friendship Heights.

District of Columbia: The Office of Planning embarked on Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework in 2022. This nearly year-long effort will bring together multiple stakeholders to understand how to support new housing, thriving retail, and a more connected and attractive public realm.

Montgomery County: As the Montgomery County Parks and Planning Department continues to build out its Thrive 2020 Plan to create more housing options in high-opportunity neighborhoods, planners will continue to bring stakeholders together to craft strategies to ensure the neighborhood is both vibrant and livable. 

In fall 2023, Montgomery County Planning Board is holding 2 open house-style sessions to learn more about the urban design study. Join the board (no registration required) at:
