MoCo Planning Department to Host Public Meetings on Bicycle Master Plan

September 2, 2015

 

The Montgomery County Planning Department, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, is inviting the community to participate in kick-off meetings during September and October to learn about the Bicycle Master Plan and how to get involved in planning a bicycle network for Montgomery County. The meetings will be held in five locations so that County residents can pick the one that is most convenient for them to attend.

   In Germantown, the meeting will be held Wednesday, Sept. 9 at the Germantown Regional Services Center, Room A, at 12900 Middlebrook Road in Germantown, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. To RSVP for this event in Germantown click here

   The Bicycle Master Plan will consider the newest types of bikeways, such as separated and buffered bike lanes and bicycle boulevards, as well as secure bicycle storage facilities at transit stations. The network will be developed using an evaluation of the varying levels of stress imposed by traffic on cyclists along each roadway in the County.

   Each event will consist of a short presentation by County planner and project manager, David Anspacher, followed by an opportunity to meet with Planning Department staff and learn about relevant topics, such as how traffic stress affects cycling and the state of bicycling in Montgomery County.

   Attendees will also have the chance to contribute comments about bicycling safety and facilities they would like to see on a large “feedback map,” created for that part of the County associated with the meeting location. Community comments will be used to guide the planners during their work.

   Other scheduled meetings are  Tuesday, September 8 – Meeting 1 at Paint Branch High School, 14121 Old Columbia Pike in Burtonsville.

   Tuesday, September 15 – Meeting 3 at the Planning Department headquarters, 8787 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring.
