Town of Brookeville, Maryland Comprehensive Plan Update

to Transportation, Pedestrian Networks & Streetscaping Elements

Project Overview

With completion of the Brookeville Bypass in summer of 2021 and the reduction of traffic through Town by 10,000 trips per day, the Town of Brookeville is ready to explore opportunities for more complete streets that will better meet the needs of all users in a safe and historically appropriate manner—turning what was a high volume/high speed road corridor back into a street for people and placemaking. 

 

The Town needs your help over the next several months to create a long-term vision with a prioritized approach to the Town’s transportation-related capital improvement efforts which will be built out over the next ten to fifteen years. The resulting Comprehensive Plan Update will be used to help raise additional outside funding for the identified priorities.

 

Updating the Transportation, Pedestrian Networks & Streetscaping Elements of the Comprehensive Plan 

 

The Town of Brookeville is looking to update the “Transportation, Pedestrian Networks & Streetscaping Elements” of its Comprehensive Plan. They have retained Lardner/Klein Landscape Architects to help them with the update.  Conducting this study requires enthusiastic outreach to town leadership, neighbors, Montgomery County staff, and representatives, as well as the provision of means for all parties to articulate ideas, generate goals, and spell-out their desired outcomes for the plan.  With this in mind, Town representatives will conduct four informal working sessions with their planning consultant to develop the plan.  The Town will also sponsor two virtual public workshops to provide additional opportunities for community members and interested stakeholders:  a community visioning meeting and a community-based planning workshop to ensure that the plan, as it develops, is consistent with public vision, goals, and values.
