The Purple Line Corridor Coalition is a collaboration between communities and the public and private sectors. Led by the University of Maryland’s National Center for Smart Growth, the coalition works collectively toward prosperity in the communities and businesses around the Purple Line.
Tuesday’s meeting brought together corridor residents, nonprofits, businesses and other organizations to check in on local communities and businesses. Also present were planning department officials including Kip Reynolds from the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission and community activists such as organizers from advocacy organization CASA.
Sheila Somashekhar, the coalition’s director, spoke about how the community must adapt to the changes presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
