ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — Whether it's finding parking or getting through traffic, navigating around Ellicott City and neighboring Oella can be a challenge for residents and visitors alike.

Last spring the Baltimore Metropolitan Council launched a study to explore ways at improving accessibility.

After months of public input which generated 86 online responses, the results are in.

The Council made nearly 50 suggestions including implementing a parking shuttle and increasing bike and pedestrian infrastructure.

Improved parking management and how to better handle loading and deliveries were also highlighted.

A public meeting to discuss the findings will be held March 21 at the Roger Carter Community Center.

Public comment is also welcome until April 5.
