Is the Rustic Road concept only Mountgomery County brainchild or is this nationwide?

question: When people ask for improvements on Rustic Roads, is Mo Co DOT mandated to stay within the original boundaries of the road-another words not widen it?

Are there any regulations / guidelines for the plantings and vegetation management along the sides of the roads? I’m especially interested in native plantings and wildflowers and how these might be encouraged. Also how many miles are there of rustic roads? Thanks!

Are there any functioning mills in Montgomery County?

Brilliant. Thanks. I’ll share the Code with The Wild Ones - a large group of gardeners who are native plant enthusiasts.

Thank you so much - this is such a spectacular success because of your efforts. We appreciate it so much. And it is such a contrast with the Planning Board's continuing failure to strongly enforce the Forest Conservation statute and the State and Federal laws governing stream buffers and wetlands.

Excellent work. In England, they have designated Areas of Natural Beauty. But they let the beauty speak for itself, without signs saying so e.g in the Cotswolds and Yorkshire Dales. The US suffers from Sign-itis - so something is stuck by the roadside every 50 yards. River Road e.g. has Scenic Byway signs, stating the obvious. Your Rustic Roads emblem happily is discreet. In general, can we moderate the signs so as to keep the roads rustic and let their beauty speak for itself? Just a thought. C. Ellis😊

If you look up Rustic Roads Advisory Committee there is a complete calendar, plus agendas and a lot of other information
Mr. Courtenay Ellis
01:27:31
Thanks to Leslie for not dodging my Sign-itis concern, spurred in part by the arrival on my street of successive adopt a road signs advertising two finance companies. I have been cleaning the street for 20 years and have never seen the advertisers/adopters. All we have is 2 signs uglifying our street. Keep up the effort to protect your signs from becoming another advertising program. Thank you.
