MCPC’s popular Planning Smarter “Hot Topics” session is back in 2022 with new topics!  Join MCPC staff and special guests for succinct but substantial discussions on important and timely planning issues facing our communities. This free event will feature a virtual format with three presentations and opportunities for audience participation and discussion. Topics include:

Successful Infill Development 
Many communities are seeing new increased demand for new development and redevelopment in already developed places. Hear about the benefits and challenges of infill development and solutions to preserving community character while allowing for increases in density and intensity of land use.

Electric Vehicles Trend & Land Use 
Montgomery County residents already own thousands of electric vehicles. Learn about the technological trends driving this growth and explore the impacts of this technology on our land use decisions, including a look at “a day in the life” of an electric vehicle owner.

Innovative Ordinance Testing 
Learn how MCPC’s ordinance testing process, involving an innovative approach using actual development sites and a collaborative charrette process, can assist municipalities in preparing ordinances. Hear from a local municipality that successfully implemented this approach, which led to important code changes and encouraged public-private partnerships.
