Naomi Bloch represented the Trachtenberg office at last (4/29) evening’s Master Plan of Highways public meeting that took place at the Potomac Community Center on 11315 Falls Road, in Potomac, MD 20854 at 6:30 and was one of four such public meetings that have been taking place throughout April in order to seek input from the community.
This was the first comprehensive update of the roads plan since 1955 and will compile all roadway changes approved in Master Plan areas since then in one document. The presentation was given by Lawrence Cole, Master Planner and Justin Clarke both with the Montgomery County Planning Department, Transportation Planning Division. Staff is also recommending changes to the classifications of some roadways based on the definitions that were revised in the 2007 Road Code.
The current schedule for this update plan is as follows: Community Outreach April 2010; Draft Plan, September 2010; Public Hearing, November 2010; Planning Board draft, February 2011 and Plan Adoption, for the summer of 2011.
