Montgomery County is trying to speed up the development process for biohealth facilities — both for new companies and for current ones to expand in major growth corridors and near rail and bus transit. The zoning change shortens the time for review by the county’s Planning Department, public input from 420 days — the current “speed to market” process — to 160 days, Council Member Andrew Friedson said Wednesday. At its longest, the process can take about 600 days.
