UPDATE: Next FY 2021 Budget Hearing to be Held Virtually

The County Executive’s next FY 2021 budget hearing, previously planned for March 12, will now be hosted virtually on March 30 at 6 p.m. The hearing will be livestreamed on the county’s YouTube page for those interested in watching. You can also sign up to give virtual testimony.

We know that these are uncertain and scary times as we monitor the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region. While this is not business as usual, we must also recognize and leverage new ways to elevate our voices to ensure our community has what it needs to be vibrant and healthy well in to the future.

Members of the Streets for All Coalition are planning to give virtual testimony in support of increased funding for sidewalks, bike lanes, crosswalks, paths, bus stops and other projects to bolster active transportation options in Howard County. Improving our bike and pedestrian infrastructure, especially in communities like Guilford, Elkridge, Savage and Jessup, will help us create healthier communities where all people can thrive, no matter who they are or where they live.

The deadline to sign up to give virtual oral testimony at the hearing is this Friday, March 20 at 5 p.m. Join us in advocating for these important active transportation improvements to our community.
