On January 15, the Montgomery County Commissioners unanimously adopted Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, a new comprehensive plan that sets a future vision for the county. The plan contains important goals and a future land use plan with an outlook to the year 2040.

Montco 2040 contains three major themes: Connected Communities, Sustainable Places, and Vibrant Economy. These themes were developed after analyzing current conditions and emerging trends and incorporating input received from thousands of residents and a diverse 28-member steering committee. The plan involved extensive outreach to citizens, businesses, organizations, community leaders, and municipal officials.
