One Montgomery County Councilman wants a clearer explanation on what will be built if the county's Life Sciences Center is allowed to expand. If the council approves changes to the Gaithersburg West master plan, the number of people employed in the life sciences center will be allowed to triple. That includes a massive expansion of Johns Hopkins Montgomery County campus. Councilman Mike Knapp says something has been missing during the at-times contentious debate on the plan. The council is expected to vote on the changes to the plan by the end of the year.
