Montgomery County Commissioners approved BGE Engineering Firm to begin working with each of the Commissioners on putting together a new thoroughfare plan for the County. Commissioners approved this next step at their regular meeting on Dec. 10.
“The major thoroughfare plan, I think, was first adopted in the seventies, and it’s been updated a couple of times since then, and most recently it was in 2016,” said Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack. As Commissioner Meador (Precinct 1 Commissioner Mike Meador), had pointed out, as quickly as we’re growing and as fast as things are changing in Montgomery County, we need to make sure that our major thoroughfare plan is dynamic as our community.”
Noack said they have taken the steps to bring in the engineering firm BGE to work with each of the four precincts to put together a new major thoroughfare plan.
“There are some roads that need to be added, there are some roads that need to be deleted, and there are some roads that need to be altered; shift their alignment, said Noack. That way, developers have a really good idea of where we want these roads to be so when they move forward with the platting process, they can plan their land plan accordingly, based on an updated major thoroughfare plan.”
Noack said BGE will present their proposed new thoroughfare plan in three to six months.
