The Town Council has agreed to ask the Town’s Long Range Planning Committee to focus its work effort on two important issues over the next few months. Specifically, the LRP will study ways that the Town can better position itself with respect to the Bethesda Downtown Plan and to our efforts on the proposed Purple Line project. Both efforts will be led by the LRP interim chairs, Grant Davies and Kathie Legg, with Fred Cecere as Council liaison.

Regarding the Bethesda Downtown Plan they are tasked with reviewing and assessing efforts to date to develop a strategy coupled with the tactics needed to move forward. This may include forging relationships across a number of partners; for example, if possible, strengthening the Coalition of Bethesda Communities.

Regarding TOCC’s Purple Line efforts, the LRP will review Town efforts to date, costs and return, and discuss options going forward. This will in large measure depend on Governor Hogan’s decision regarding the future of the light rail project, which is expected shortly.

The LRP’s involvement in these two projects is consistent with the Committee’s approved tasks for the current year. The next LRP meeting will be held on June 15, and the Town Council will discuss both projects at its June 17 meeting.
