The Trachtenberg Office Attends the Western Montgomery Citizens Advisory Board Meeting

Naomi Bloch represented the Trachtenberg office at last night’s monthly meeting of the Western Montgomery Citizens Advisory Board which was held this month at the Glen Echo Town Hall, 6106 Harvard Avenue, Glen Echo, MD 20812.

The guest speaker was Mr. Bruce Johnston, Chief of Project Development from the Department of Transportation who gave an update on the MacArthur Boulevard Bikeway Project that will ultimately run 71/2 miles from the Old Angler’s Inn to the D.C. line. The project will be built in three sections starting with the section that includes Glen Echo Park as this will be the most challenging section of the project. Work is expected to begin by the end of 2011.

During the Committee reports portion of the evening a fairly energetic discussion resulted when the Chair of the Public Safety Committee, Mr. Jefferey Hearle, gave his update concerning Ambulance Fees. He said a meeting on this topic would be held on April 5th at the B-CC Regional Service Center, in Bethesda. Board Chair, Sue Knapp suggested that the discussion be tabled and taken up again on April 5th when the Safety Committee would be presenting their final report.

Next meeting of the Western Montgomery Citizens Advisory Board (WMCCAB) will be Monday, April 19th. Guests are invited to attend the Board meetings and are encouraged to ask questions and provide comments. For more information about the WMCCAB: Bethesda.citizen@montgomerycountymd.gov.
