PURPLE LINE UPDATE

For 12 weeks this summer, ESSCA participated with 40+ other civic associations and community organizations, as a member of the Purple Line Implementation Advisory Group (PLIAG), appointed by County Executive Ike Leggett. The purpose of the PLIAG is to provide a forum for documenting and resolving issues of concern to the communities along the Purple Line route, i.e. noise, business impacts, construction, etc. The Request for Proposal (RFP) to build the Purple Line was released by MTA in July. PLIAG will continue to meet on an as-needed basis during the process of awarding the contract and construction of the Purple Line. Karen Roper, who has represented ESSCA on the PLIAG, will provide a more detailed update on the Purple Line at our September meeting.
