Delegate Fraser-Hidalgo and Councilmember Balcombe to Hold Upcounty Transportation Town Hall

Per Montgomery County: On Thursday, Oct. 12 from 6:30 p.m.–8 p.m., Delegate David Fraser-Hidalgo and Councilmember Marilyn Balcombe will be hosting a town hall at the BlackRock Center for the Arts to discuss the transportation challenges and opportunities facing the Upper Montgomery County area. Delegate Fraser-Hidalgo represents District 15 in the Maryland General Assembly, and Councilmember Balcombe represents District 2 in the Montgomery County Council. Together, both members represent Upper Montgomery County, including Germantown, Clarksburg, Poolesville, Darnestown, North Potomac, Dickerson, and the surrounding areas.

“Upper and Western Montgomery County continues to be one of the fastest growing areas in the region, with new jobs, housing and opportunity coming to our communities every year,” Delegate Fraser-Hidalgo stated. “Despite this steady and sustained growth, state and County transportation services continue to leave Upcounty residents out of the loop. This town hall is both an opportunity for residents to hear directly from state and local leaders on the progress being made, and for these officials to engage with the residents who will be impacted by their policy decisions.”

Attending the town hall will be Montgomery County Transportation Director Chris Conklin; Maryland Department of Transportation Deputy Secretary Samantha Biddle; and Assistant Secretary for Planning and Project Development Joe McAndrew. Residents will also hear from Delegate Fraser-Hidalgo and Councilmember Balcombe.

“There has been a lot of development in the Upcounty over the last 15-20 years, and with more development on the way, it will be important that residents share their experiences at this point in time with our transportation officials so they can have a better understanding of how to address our challenges now and incorporate that understanding into future development,” said Councilmember Balcombe.

The town hall will be recorded and published in its entirety by the Council Communications Office.
