Dear friends and neighbors,

Happy New Year! We hope that your year is off to fantastic start.

The application will now undergo a technical review by Montgomery County Planning staff and other County agencies. Our team will also be submitting a Site Plan application to the County in February. We anticipate that both the Preliminary Plan and Site Plan will be considered by the Planning Board at a public hearing in late spring or early summer 2017. See #6 on our list of FAQs for more details on the entitlement process.

There will be another community meeting held regarding the Site Plan application. This meeting has tentatively been scheduled for Monday, February 6, 2017 at 6:30 PM at the Whetstone Community Center located at 19140 Brooke Grove Ct, Montgomery Village, MD. Once details have been finalized, we will post details here and publicize the meeting more broadly throughout the community. 

We appreciate your continued interest in BLOOM MONTGOMERY VILLAGE. As always, please feel free to reach us via email at info@bloominmv.com or by phone at 202-777-2023.

Cheers,

The Bloom Team

MAKING BLOOM HAPPEN

Working with the community, we’ve made great progress towards making the Bloom Montgomery Village vision a reality. But we’re not done yet. To make sure that the Bloom vision supported by residents and the Montgomery Village Foundation becomes a reality, we’re asking the community to continue to support the project as it moves towards consideration by the Montgomery County Planning Board in early 2017. Here’s where we are:

Learned from the community and developed a plan

Gained support of residents and approval by the MV Foundation

Show Council that Bloom has the MV community's support

Show Planning Board that Bloom has the MV community's support

THE FUTURE OF MONTGOMERY VILLAGE

How Bloom Benefits Montgomery Village

DPA Benefits

NEW HOUSING OPTIONS

Diverse new housing options help attract new and retain existing young families and working professionals and empty nesters by providing new product typically offered in more distant suburbs.

DPA Benefits

IMPROVED HOUSING VALUES

New housing helps to increase home values over time by providing sales comps that are higher than existing homes. Similarly, new housing encourages repairs and renovations to existing homes as homeowners are more likely to realize a return on their investment. This type of reinvestment, over time, helps to both increase property values and improve neighborhood image.

DPA Benefits

NEW PARK & OPEN SPACE

New development in Montgomery Village will bring with it a beautifully designed park that will feature open lawns, walking/biking trails, a dog park and community garden, as well as thousands of new trees and a restored natural habitat. Not only does the park further enhance the sylvan character of the Village and provide numerous recreation options for all ages, it also increases the desirability of homes in the Village and provides new access through the heart of the community to better connect existing neighborhoods and amenities.

DPA Benefits

SMARTER DESIGN

Today’s new homes are far more environmentally friendly than in years past, due to more efficient layouts, deeper market penetration of green building materials and technological advances with regard to appliances and fixtures. As a result, they require less energy to heat and cool, use more recycled building material and demand fewer natural resources.
