Bethesda Downtown Sector Plan Cont.

As promised yesterday, I am digging into the plan for nuggets and things to be happy/ worry about. This one struck me as a good recommendation:

“Page 41: Modify language under A. Bethesda Circulator Expansion as follows: A more robust Circulator Bus route should be considered to serve an expanded Downtown Bethesda. That route should include service to the Battery Lane and Pearl Districts,[. Potential new stops should include the following locations (see Figure 2.10: Proposed Circulator Route Revisions):] new Bethesda South Metrorail station/Purple Line station on Elm Street, the Pearl District, and Medical Center Metrorail station.”

I like the idea of the Circulator connecting residents to both Bethesda and Medical Center metro stops. Hopefully with easier, all weather, access to metro, we will see more downtown residents able to leave the car at home and use metro a bit more.

More nuggets etc. to follow!

Bethesda (as part of Washington, DC Metro area) Ranked 4th Best Place to Live

The Washington, DC Metro area (which of course includes Bethesda) was just ranked the 4th best place in the US to live by U.S. News and World Report. As a resident that probably feels about right – if we had a beach we would be number 1!

What is also worth considering is that we are also among the very top places in the country to invest in real estate.

So in combination – you can buy a property in a place where you should enjoy living and if you move, you will very likely have a good investment.

Take a look at the rest of the article (some useful bits in it including the important point that experiences [and I believe investment return] will be neighborhood dependent).
