Proposals to extend local roads came under fire at a Montgomery County Plan Commission meeting Wednesday evening. Residents voiced concern over eminent domain, safety and other infrastructure needs as the commission considered a drafted thoroughfare plan.

The plan includes several areas for improvements or changes, including some new roads that would add more connections to existing ones.
