Department of Transportation Seeks Resident Involvement; New Brochure Details Opportunities for Public Input

A new brochure recently published by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT), called “Community Outreach Meeting Guide 2013,” lists eight main resident advisory groups that advise the department and the dates and times they meet. The committees bring issues to the attention of MCDOT and advise staff of community concerns and priorities. The brochure also mentions a number of other civic groups that collaborate with the department as issues arise.

The advisory committees consist of residents, business representatives, civic and community leaders and County representatives. The group meetings are open to the public and residents are encouraged to apply for committee membership when openings are advertised. The brochure lists contact information for each committee.

Residents who wish to receive a copy of the brochure, advisory committee reports or email notifications of meetings may call 240-777-7155 or send an email to The brochure is also available online.
