Community Invited to Participate Virtually in Montgomery Planning’s 'I-270 Corridor Forward' Plan Kickoff on Sept. 30

The Montgomery County Planning Department, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), is inviting residents along the I-270 Corridor, the County’s main north-south corridor, to participate in the kickoff meeting for “Corridor Forward: The I-270 Transit Plan” through an online meeting from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30. RSVPs are required.

RSVP for the September 30 Corridor Forward Virtual Kick Off Meeting.

The Corridor Forward Plan will evaluate transit options that could serve I-270 Corridor communities and employment centers between Frederick and Tysons, Virginia. The plan will assess different transit options to support existing communities and also position the County’s I-270 Corridor as a prime location for economic development.

Following the evaluation, Montgomery Planning will develop an implementation plan to ensure resources are directed to the most efficient and valuable transit projects.

The online kickoff event will take place on the Microsoft Teams Live platform. Montgomery Planning staff will provide an overview of the project purpose and describe the importance of planning for transit in the I-270 Corridor. Participants are invited to complete the Transit Values Questionnaire in advance of the meeting, as well as review a series of videos produced to explain transit planning considerations. The meeting will also include a moderated panel discussion with agency and transit partners as well as an opportunity for participants to engage in a live question and answer session.

Montgomery Planning welcomes questions in advance of the kickoff meeting. Questions can be submitted through the Transit Values Questionnaire.
