• Bicycle Master Plan Meeting June 27

    Wednesday, June 26, 2019

    From the Planning Board:

    Montgomery County Planning Board to Consider Revisions to Bicycle Parking Requirements at June 27 Meeting

    View the staff report for the June 27 Planning Board Meeting.

    On June 27, 2019, the Montgomery County Planning Board will consider requesting the County Council to introduce a zoning text amendment (ZTA) to modify the bicycle parking requirements in the county's zoning code. This ZTA would fulfill a recommendation in the 2018 Bicycle Master Plan to update bicycle parking requirements and "end-of-trip" amenities that must be provided as part of the developments projects within Montgomery County.

    Highlights of the ZTA include requiring spaces to accommodate larger bicycles, such as cargo bikes and recumbent bikes, and provide bicycle repair stations and charging capabilities for e-bikes within long-term storage areas of many multi-family residential and commercial buildings.

    The community is invited to comment on the Bicycle Parking Zoning Text Amendment.

    You can sign up online to testify.
    The public is also invited to submit comments about the Bicycle Master Plan via email to mcp-chair@mncppc.org

    All comments and testimony will become part of the public testimony and public record for the plan.
