Theo tin trong quận Montgomery

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, July 10, 2018 The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) invites the public to an open house to discuss proposed changes to requirements in the County Code and accompanying Executive Regulations for implementation of multi-modal programs in new development projects and for employers of certain sizes. The open house will be held Monday, July 16, from 5 – 8 p.m. in the Lobby Auditorium at the Executive Office Building, 101 Monroe Street, Rockville. Brief presentations summarizing the proposed changes will be provided at 5:30 p.m., 6:15 p.m. and 7 p.m. Explanatory materials will be on display and staff will be available to discuss the proposed revisions. MCDOT has been working with other County agencies, County Council staff and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission to draft revisions to Chapter 42A, Article II, “Transportation Demand Management” of the County Code. These existing Transportation Demand Management (TDM) provisions establish the authority for Transportation Management Districts (TMDs) and describe actions required of new developments and employers in those districts to help reduce traffic impacts and promote multi-modal options. The proposed changes will be included in a bill to revise Code provisions planned for introduction at County Council, along with draft Executive Regulations. Proposed revisions and related materials are posted on MCDOT’s Commuter Services webpage at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/commute. Feedback forms will be available for those attending the open house. Comments can also be emailed to mcdot.commuterservices@montgomerycountymd.gov. Additional opportunities for input will be provided at a public hearing on the bill to be scheduled in the fall and through the Executive Regulation process. # # # Release ID: 18-612 Media Contact: Sandra Brecher 240-777-8383
