>> Report on KHCA General Meeting (December 12, 2018)
The General Meeting program topic was pedestrian and traffic safety, in light of the cluster of pedestrian deaths taking place in the Wheaton/Glenmont/Aspen Hill area over the summer and fall. Both Montgomery County and the District of Columbia have signed on to Vision Zero -- a program for addressing the entire scope of pedestrian and traffic safety with the ambitious goal of reducing pedestrian deaths and serious injuries to zero. During our December meeting, we heard from representatives from the County Planning Department and Transportation Department about what Vision Zero entails and the steps the County is taking to implement Vision Zero.
A more detailed report on the General Meeting, with a discussion of Vision Zero and links to the County's Powerpoints that show the problems we face and some of the proposed solutions, can be found at the Resources
