Master Plan of Highways and Transitways Outreach

MPOHT Feedback Map (Response to Comments Now Available)

The Montgomery County Planning Board, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, posted a digital interactive map of county highways and transitways to solicit feedback from the public on proposed changes to the Master Plan of Highways and Transitways (MPOHT).

This tool, called the MPOHT Feedback Map, allows users to see 129 proposed changes and updates in the Master Plan of Highways and Transitways, and leave their online comments. A search tool on the GIS-based map will help citizens find their homes or businesses on the map. Once the 129 changes are finalized, the MPOHT Feedback Map will be placed on the Planning Department’s site with the property search functionality. The public comment period using this web tool has been closed; however, this feedback map will remain on the MPOHT webpage and will be re-activated for public commenting at a later date once the MPOHT is adopted by the County Council.

For each link where a comment was provided, a response has been added. Simply click on a link with a comment, and the response is the top item in the comment section. When multiple comments were provided, we tried to address all comments in one response. Thank you for everyone who used this Feedback Map.

The next planned event for this Master Plan will be the presentation of Staff Recommendations to the Montgomery County Planning Board on December 21.

In addition, public outreach meetings were held at five locations as shown below. At these meetings, a presentation was provided and the proposed classification changes and any public comments received were discussed.
