On The Issues
There are many places in Frederick County that have inadequate road
capacity, that are seeing extremely high congestion and degradation of
roadways intended for much lower-capacity use. One of the immediate
options to help mitigate this problem is expanding the County’s TransIT service, offering Sunday service, and creating new routes that encompass many of the newer areas of development. Kavonté also feels we need to incentivize companies to increase options for remote work opportunities which reduce the number of commuters on the road.
Climate & Environment
Kavonté will support small area plans that honor the goals of livable
Frederick; including the need to consider and mitigate long-term
environmental impacts from new development. He would continue to fund the county’s efforts to expand the agricultural preservation, ensuring land is protected from residential development and urbanization and at the same time allowing farmers to ensure a legacy of value from the most important asset they possess.
