The Montgomery County Planning Board needs supporters of active transportation!

As you may have heard, the County Council obtained the resignation of all five members of the Montgomery Planning Board on October 12, 2022. Regardless of how the County got here, Montgomery County needs new Board Members to guide and oversee development, planning, transportation, and parks. I want to encourage WABA supporters to seize on this opportunity to continue the support for active transportation and smart growth championed by the Board over the past 11 years.

I urge you to consider applying for the five interim positions, including that of interim Chair, that are open. You may do so by submitting an application expressing interest, including a resume (no more than 4 pages) listing professional and civic experience, political party affiliation, home and office telephone numbers, and an email address, sent to: Council President Gabe Albornoz and emailed to The deadline is tomorrow October 18, 2022 no later than 5:00pm.

WABA is also sending a letter to the Council encouraging them to appoint supporters of active transportation and smart growth policies.You can help maintain the progressive policies of the Planning Board by applying for the open positions.
