Public Hearings on Johns Hopkins University Expansion

Play associated audio

The first of two public hearings will be held tonight in Montgomery County about a planned expansion of Johns Hopkins University's campus in Gaithersburg.

County council president Phil Andrews says interest in the issue was so high the council had to add a second hearing, scheduled for Thursday night, to accommodate the number of people who wanted to speak.

If the council approves a new zoning measure, Johns Hopkins would be allowed to nearly triple the number of people it employs at its Shady Grove Life Sciences Center. In addition to expanding the Life Sciences Center, Johns Hopkins wants to create a "research" campus on the neighboring Belward Farm, which the school owns.
