Join the SGA Student Sustainability Committee on Tuesday, March 31st to engage in a forum on the Maryland Transit Administration’s Purple Line project. The Purple Line would have major implications for the University of Maryland and surrounding communities, servicing 21 stops between Prince George’s County and Montgomery County. The infrastructure project could generate as many as 6,300 jobs and remove 17,000 cars a day from our roadways. But, not everyone is supportive.
A panel of experts and stakeholders including College Park Mayor Andrew Fellows, Leslie Henderson of Prince George’s Advocates for Community-Based Transit, Michael Madden of the Maryland Transit Administration, and John Fitzgerald, a practicing lawyer and an opponent of the Purple Line from Chevy Chase, will speak regarding the project at 7pm in the Prince George’s Room in Stamp.
Come to learn about how this project will affect you, and bring questions! RSVP to the Facebook event here.
