Pathways to Opportunity: A Community Development Agreement for the Purple Line Corridor (PDF) articulates a collective vision for vibrant economic and community development along the 16-mile corridor, strategies to achieve that vision and a commitment by a variety of project stakeholders. It represents an opportunity to leverage the Purple Line investment to achieve benefits throughout the communities along its route, including:

      • Revitalizing and stabilizing neighborhoods
      • Supporting small businesses
      • Connecting workers with jobs
      • Creating healthy and vibrant communities

 

Capturing the benefits of transit investments requires coordination and cooperation by a broad group of stakeholders. In summer 2014, officials from the State of Maryland, Montgomery and Prince George’s County joined forces with the Purple Line Corridor Coalition (PLCC) and stakeholders to develop a Purple Line Community Compact. In the Fall and Winter of 2014, PLCC members and more than 300 leaders from communities, businesses and local governments in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, and state agencies engaged in a transparent and inclusive dialog, set goals and made commitments as part of the compact process. Our joint commitment offers the opportunity to truly maximize the return on this important investment.
