Montgomery County Seeks Input by Sep. 30 on Proposed Regulation That Would Allow Expansion of Transportation Management Requirements for Builders and Employers
Montgomery County residents have until September 30th to submit public comment on proposed Executive Regulations regarding traffic impacts and encouraging multi-modal options.
These regulations are part of legislation already passed by County Council meant to, “designate new areas where requirements for filing TDM plans would apply, with the exception of single-family residential areas and the designated Agricultural Reserve” (Press Release).
“‘The County has a goal of zero emissions by 2035 and we are not going to reach that goal alone,’ said County Executive Marc Elrich. ‘We need buy in from everyone. This expansion will help reduce fossil fueled single-occupancy vehicles on our roadways will have a significant impact on our air quality. We need to get a grip on the environmental damage we are doing. We are already seeing aggressive storms that are a direct result of climate change'” (Press Release).
