Westminster, MD, Monday, April 26, 2021 – The Department of Planning seeks public input on the county’s first Transportation Master Plan and asks residents to complete a new online survey.

To help address the updated transportation needs for Carroll County and its citizens and businesses, as well as provide a vision for future needs, Planning began the task of creating the first-ever countywide Comprehensive Transportation Master Plan. The goal of this plan originates with the 2014 Carroll County Master Plan, which states, “Provide a safe and functional intra-County transportation system that promotes access and mobility for people and goods through a variety of transportation modes.”

The new survey, announced at the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission meeting on April 20, 2021, is available on the department’s webpage for public comment until June 1, 2021. Residents and workers are encouraged to share their thoughts on a number of transportation-related questions and survey responses will help steer the direction of the upcoming Transportation Master Plan.

Those who complete the survey and provide an email will be the first to receive updates on the Transportation Master Plan or interested persons may click here to subscribe to the latest updates.
