About the Study

The Mayor and Council voted unanimously in February 2017 to move ahead with a comprehensive study of over 150 acres bordering the Stonestreet corridor.

The study will identify key sites for action, short- and long-term implementation steps, and seek to strengthen relationships through finding consensus and balance with business owners, tenants and neighborhoods in the corridor area. The study area, in general, covers the east and west sides of North and South Stonestreet avenues, from Westmore Road to the north to where South Stonestreet Avenue dead ends to the south.

Previous Corridor Planning Efforts

The study will also build on several previous plans that have addressed the Stonestreet corridor. Detailed recommendations for the area are included in the Lincoln Park (2007) and East Rockville (2004) Neighborhood Plans, as well as the 2001 Town Center Master Plan. They broadly envision a pedestrian- and bicycle-oriented main street-style development, with a mix of uses along a converted boulevard.
