Planning Department to Reveal Results of MARC Train Stations Studies at November Meeting

November 22, 2016

The Montgomery County Planning Department will host a meeting for MARC Rail Communities Plan to present the results of the transportation studies of station areas in Boyds and Germantown.

   Planners will present information from consultants studying the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) station areas in Germantown and Boyds. The public discussion will focus on road “diets” – reducing the number of travel lanes or road widths – in Germantown and a possible overpass or underpass in Boyds.

   The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 30 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in Room 2 of the Upcounty Regional Services Center at 12900 Middlebrook Road in Germantown. RSVP for the November 30 MARC Rail Communities Plan meeting.

   When completed in 2017, the MARC Rail Communities Plan will offer recommendations for parking, roads and land use within the station areas that take into account citizen input and results of the traffic studies.

   The MARC Rail Communities Plan will focus on improvements to transit station areas in Boyds and Germantown. This effort is based on ongoing studies of parking and access issues at MARC stations in the County that are being undertaken by the Maryland Transit Administration and Montgomery County Department of Transportation.

   Recommended land uses and existing zoning will be evaluated for consistency with the desired scale and character for these historic communities. Access and connections in the vicinity of the stations will be evaluated and enhancements recommended where needed. In coordination with MARC Rail and County and state agencies, the Plan will consider land uses and alternative arrangements for existing surface parking and access. A workshop, called a charrette, was held in March 2016 to gather community feedback about the transit station areas. Learn more about this plan online.
