Aspen Hill advisory group application
Montgomery Planning Seeks Community Members for Advisory Group to Guide the Aspen Hill Vision Zero Study
Applications for advisory group members are due on December 28
The Montgomery County Planning Department seeks members of the community to participate in its Aspen Hill Vision Zero Study Advisory Group. The study is focused on identifying existing barriers to safety and exploring ways to improve conditions in the Aspen Hill area. It will result in recommended strategies to make major intersections safer for all road users, pedestrians and bicyclists.
The Aspen Hill Vision Zero Study will identify strategies to:
- Enhance connectivity by improving safety for all road users.
- Explore solutions to reduce speeds and conflicts on the road.
- Establish direct, safe connections to transit, community facilities and other destinations.
- Examine the potential for redevelopment of commercial shopping centers.
The Montgomery County Planning Board will appoint between 8 and 12 community members to represent Aspen Hill residents and a variety of interest groups. Members will be selected through an application process to ensure the Advisory Group represents diverse perspectives.
The advisory group will meet approximately once per month from January 2019 to July 2019 to provide advice and feedback to Montgomery Planning staff members as they develop a working draft of the Aspen Hill Vision Zero study. All meetings will take place on weekday evenings at venues in the Aspen Hill area.
