The April 2014 Echo (PDF), has been posted.


Meet the Candidates, Maryland House of Delegates, District 18

Mark your calendars for a special RCA Meeting on May 1st at 8pm, at the Veirs Mill Rec Center (map). We have invited all of the candidates for the House of Delegates in our district, District 18, to attend our meeting. Each candidate will introduce themselves and then be available for individual questions from our community members. This is not a debate, but a great opportunity to interact with each candidate. We have confirmations from all of the candidates: Delegate Al Carr, Delegate Jeff Waldstreicher, Delegate Ana Sol Gutierrez , Candidate Natali Fani-Gonzalez, Candidate Rick Kessler, Candidate Emily Shetty and Candidate Elizabeth Matory.


Boiling Brook Parkway / Rocking Horse Road Intersection

A long standing issue in our community is the daily frustration many of us feel as we try to navigate the Boiling Brook Parkway / Rocking Horse Road intersection. Several RCA board members spent a cold December morning monitoring traffic at the intersection with a member from the Montgomery County Department of Transportation. It is clear that the intersection has issues. Unfortunately, given the location of the intersection with the creek, our options are somewhat limited. Below you can see the changes that DOT has proposed. Click through for a larger version. The changes are aimed at calming the traffic in the intersection and limiting some of the motions, which will hopefully make for a more orderly intersection. Any changes would be marked temporarily to gain feedback prior to permanent changes being made. Please share your feedback privately with me or with the community on our Yahoo Group.

Boiling Brook Parkway / Schuylkill Road Intersection – Possible Change

Based on feedback from the community, the RCA asked the Montgomery County Department of Transportation to consider removing the “hot right” from Boiling Brook Parkway on to Schuylkill Road. This intersection is dangerous for pedestrians and the changes are aimed at calming traffic and improving pedestrian safety. Please share your feedback with me privately at or with the community on our Yahoo Group.
