NO ON M83: HELP STOP ANOTHER SPRAWL HIGHWAY.

Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is pushing forward a costly and destructive highway project called M83 (the Midcounty Highway Extended). In a time of scarce resources and rising environmental challenges like climate change, we can’t afford to make the wrong investments for our future.  Now is the time to invest in transit, not new highway capacity.
There is an important public hearing next week to grant an environmental permit for this major sprawl highway. Please stand with our allies at TAME Coalition (Transit Alternatives to the Midcounty Highway Extended) to stop this destructive project:

Please submit the letter linked below with your comments, and it will be sent to the Army Corps of Engineers, Maryland Department of the Environment, MCDOT, the County Executive, Montgomery County Council, Montgomery County Planning Board, and the EPA.
Join Us on Wednesday, August 7th at the environmental public hearing, Seneca Valley High School, Germantown, Md. Sign up: 4:30pm - 6:30pm. Public Hearing: 6:30pm - 10:30pm.  Come and join the crowd for an hour...or two, 
or three, or four...  We'll be there with hundreds of our friends!
