Resident Needed To Help Solve Transportation, Pedestrian Issues

Traffic on Arlington RoadA committee that advises the county government on pedestrian, parking and transportation issues in downtown Bethesda is looking for new applicants.

The Bethesda Transportation Management District (TMD) Advisory Committee needs a resident of downtown Bethesda (map here) to take one of the committee spots reserved for the local citizens advisory board.

The TMD Advisory Committee reviews parking rates, government and private projects and pedestrian safety measures in Bethesda with the ultimate goal of increasing the amount of people who use mass transit or means other than cars to get into and out of the area.

Bethesda Transportation Solutions, a division of the Montgomery County-funded Bethesda Urban Partnership, promotes carpooling and incentives for other transportation options to cut into the daily traffic slog in and around the downtown area.

Members on the committee serve three-year terms without compensation and meet on the third Friday morning of every other month in Bethesda.

Applicants should send a brief resume detailing pertinent experience, interests and community activities by August 15 to the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board: 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda, MD 20814.
