Transit Report Calls for Public Comment

On Tuesday, both city and county officials in Frederick worked together to improve transportation issues in the area.


FREDERICK, MD – On Tuesday, both city and county officials worked together to improve transportation issues in the area.

During a press conference, officials presented the Regional Transportation Priorities Plan, a draft of goals and objectives to improve roadway congestion, transit crowding and highway travel in Frederick.

Fixing bottlenecks and encouraging alternative transportation modes are just a few of the major priorities outlined in the report.

County and city officials asked for residents to submit comments and feedback about the plans.

"We need to hear the public comment because we need to have their support as we go forward with these goals and strategies,” said Alderman Carol Krimm, city of Frederick.

"Make sure we get a little comment in support of this because again this is a favorable report and favorable direction for this area and we don't want to lose it,” said Vice President Paul Smith, Frederick Board of County Commissioners.

They want county support before finalizing any transit plans.

"Then as those comments come in those goals and strategies may be tweaked a little bit before the transportation planning board finally approves it,” says Alderman Krimm.

Frederick County residents can submit comments about the transportation plan until August 23, just click here
