On Wednesday, Nov. 9 starting at 7 p.m., the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold a virtual public hearing to discuss the proposed construction of a sidewalk on Old Baltimore Road from Menden Farm Drive to the path at the lake.
At the virtual hearing, MCDOT will present the project details, costs, schedules and obtain public testimony. If approved, the completed project will enhance safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and people with disabilities as they travel to nearby schools and facilities. Public input is encouraged and will influence whether MCDOT constructs any, all or a portion of the proposed sidewalks. Online registration is required to attend. On the morning of the meeting, an electronic invitation will be sent to those who registered.
Prior to the virtual meeting, the public is encouraged to review the proposal files on the project website. Written testimony or questions may be submitted to MCDOT’s Sidewalk Program by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Written testimony carries the same weight as oral testimony. All information provided including questions and testimonies will become a matter of public record.
Interpreter services will be provided upon request with five business days advance notice by contacting Lori Jean Main by email at email@example.com or call 240-777-7271.
