While large county projects planned for Silver Spring are already funded in the county's upcoming Capital Improvements Program, residents urged county officials Monday to provide future funding for smaller road improvements and trail projects.

Construction for the new civic building transit center has already been funded, as has the design phase for the new Silver Spring Library, county officials told the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board.

But county officials said residents should lobby the county executive and County Council to get funding for smaller projects, such as improvements to Seminary Road and a comprehensive study of traffic conditions along Dale Drive.
