Purple line through Campus Drive (ReThink College Park)

The Prince George’s County Planning Department of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) is sponsoring a series of public meetings to consider the future of transit-oriented development (TOD) along the planned Purple Line light rail transit corridor.

The next one is scheduled today in Riverdale, where there will be a discussion on M-Square and UMD station. The meeting will take place at the Department of Parks and Recreation Administration Building, 6600 Kenilworth Avenue, Riverdale, MD 20737 (6:30pm – 8:30pm).

The Planning Department is working with community residents, property owners, and businesses to prepare TOD plans for five proposed Purple Line stations in Prince George’s County.

You will have an opportunity to define a vision and give input on each station’s identity, streetscape, architectural character, uses, and amenities. Your ideas and comments will inform the development of preliminary concept plans for each of the five station areas.

Two more sessions are coming in the next two weeks – one on Feb 9 at Hyatsville Hyattsville Library ( 6530 Adelphi Road) and another on Feb 15 in Riverdale (Beacon Heights Elementary School, 6929 Furman Parkway). Both meetings are scheduled at 6:30pm.
