Roadway Flooding Solution
Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has recently agreed to engineering a solution to improve the drainage problem on Montgomery Village Avenue between Lake Shore Drive and Walker House Road. Recent heavy rain storms have overwhelmed the drain and pipe system causing dangerous roadway flooding (closing the road for safe travel). MCDOT has been cleaning the drain and pipe on an as needed basis, but has decided to implement a more permanent solution. More than likely, MCDOT will need to install a larger drain in the median and new piping under the roadway.
Presidents’ Council Meeting Held
After a long hiatus, the Montgomery Village Presidents Council met virtually on June 7 to discuss issues of mutual concern to the homes corporations and condominium associations. The meeting was well attended with representatives from the HOAs, condos and apartment communities.
The main discussion topics included a presentation on the Ring Security Camera partnership in East Village by the East Village President Kevin Linck, and how to improve community parking. A subcommittee will be formed to further discuss parking, which is a hot topic for many in the community. The Presidents’ Council will reconvene in September but the date has not been set.
Upcoming Public Safety Meeting
6th District Commander Eric Stancliff and other police representatives will hold a special meeting to discuss crime trends and other police information during a virtual meeting from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, July 25. This is a good opportunity for residents to ask questions with local police leadership present.
The agenda and Zoom instructions will be posted on the MVF website a week prior to the meeting.
