Montgomery County Government wants to hear your ideas!  To collect them, the County has launched engageMontgomery, where you (yes, you) can submit suggestions and ideas for improving our community.  Read the input of others, add comments of your own, upload photos to make your point and vote on ideas you like best.  Everyone ages 14 and up can create an account and offer their input on topics like School Safety.  There’s even a rewards store to encourage activity on the site.

Of particular interest to the New Urbanists in the crowd – Pedestrian Safety.  Log on to share your thoughts on this important topic.

And, it’s not only County Government who is soliciting your input.  Friends of White Flint is listening, too!  Join us at Happy Hour on Tuesday, January 29th at Seasons 52 in White Flint.  Starting at 5:30pm, we want to hear your ideas for a reimagined Montgomery County!

I don’t think the sidewalks onPaseo Dr. and the road to that it connect’s to(to the south) have very walkable sidewalks. They are narrow, and require walking on grates and being alert to obsticle’s such as stairs, unmarked steps (no yellow striping) and in front of the square a protruding hand rail..

Thank You for sponsoring the “Get Together” last night. There seems to be little information to share at this point. The Pike and Rose presentation several weeks ago did offer a model you might consider:
Bigger Room
More specific information to share
More time for questions and answers
I imagine you were overwhelmed with the turnout. Thanks again, looking forward to hearing more about our future here.
