The Town recently submitted comments regarding the Purple Line’s Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), which assesses the environmental effects of the proposed project. These comments note significant concerns with the project’s skyrocketing costs and funding prospects and call for a new environmental impact study to identify lower cost alternatives, such as bus rapid transit. The comments also raise technical concerns about the proposed alignment, including visual, noise and safety impacts.
As plans for the Purple Line progress, the Town Council wants to ensure that the Town’s concerns are given serious consideration by state and federal decision makers, and the Council has proposed to engage a law firm to assist in that effort. The length of the engagement will be approximately 18 months, with a cost of approximately $360,000.
At the public hearing, residents may comment on this proposal. If you are unable to attend the public hearing, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall, you may submit comments to the Town Office at email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] or at 4301 Willow Lane, Chevy Chase, MD 20815 prior to the hearing.
