Program Description

  Transportation Policy

This program provides for the integration of all transportation plans, projects, and programs to ensure Department-wide coordination and consistency. The program provides a strategic planning framework for the identification and prioritization of new County and State capital operating transportation projects and programs. The program advocates and explains the County's transportation priorities to the Council and State Delegation. This program also includes a liaison role and active participation with local and regional bodies such as the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), the Transportation Planning Board (TPB), and the Maryland Department of Transportation. This program involves active participation in the master planning process in order to advance transportation priorities and ensure the ability to implement proposed initiatives. The development of transportation policy, legislation, and infrastructure financing proposals are included in this program, such as administration of the Impact Tax Program, development and negotiation of participation agreements with private developers, and the Development Approval Payment program.
