Virginia: Montgomery County Council Deputy Director says Complete Streets are too expensive and too hard on drivers (War on Cars Watch)

Planners in Montgomery County want to make Veirs Mill into a Complete Street, with BRT, sidewalks, a grade-separated crossing of the Matthew Henson Trail and a bikeway; but Montgomery County Council Deputy Director Glenn Orlin, in a memo to the Planning, Housing, and Economic Development Committee says that will all be too expensive and will make driving worse.

Orlin states that Complete Streets are an “urban” thing, but that Veirs Mill is a suburban major highway.
