The Purple Line Corridor Coalition (PLCC) Invites Organizations to Endorse the Purple Line Community Development Agreement
The Community Development Agreement for the Purple Line Corridor is a voluntary agreement among local governments, community, nonprofit, education, business, and philanthropic organizations, and others to complement the State of Maryland's Purple Line project and help to leverage Maryland's largest transit investment in the 21st century to offer all residents and workers pathways to opportunity.

Now that construction of the transit line is moving forward, the Agreement provides a much-needed vehicle for focusing coordinated community and economic development work. And the time to act is now.

The many organizations that helped to craft the Agreement are showing their support for the vision, and their commitment to find ways they can be part of this collective impact approach, by endorsing the Agreement. While the specifics will be worked out as the project moves forward, the role of collaborating organizations ranges greatly from community outreach to task force participation, staffing support to project funding, and more. We are all starting with the question “How can we align our efforts to support this shared vision?” View the latest list of endorsements here:

Creating Pathways to Opportunity Through Local Transit
Pathways to Opportunity: A Community Development Agreement for the Purple Line Corridor (PDF) ( represents a commitment by multiple stakeholders, developed over the course of several years, to work together to create a place of opportunity for all who live, work and invest in the corridor. Attached to the Agreement, and included by reference is the Pathways to Opportunity Purple Line Corridor Action Plan (PDF) ( The goals, strategies and actions aim to prepare local businesses for the impacts of construction, to preserve the availability of housing options for all income levels, to sustain culturally diverse communities, and to assure that the line connects as many residents as possible with suitable educational and employment opportunities.

The Action Plan also includes background information about the process of creating the Community Development Agreement and more about the multi-sector collaborative, the Purple Line Corridor Coalition (PLCC), which is administered by the National Center for Smart Growth (NCSG) at the University of Maryland. PLCC was formed by government, community, nonprofit and business leaders to encourage collaboration, investment and planning "beyond the tracks" through a collective impact approach. Cities across the country that work together and focus on a corridor approach to community and economic development along a transit line, are able to leverage the greatest benefits for their residents, workers and communities.

To measure and monitor our progress, NCSG is constructing a Purple Line Corridor dashboard for the PLCC. Each year the agreement partners and other interested organizations will review progress toward the goals and strategies, update the Action Plan, and welcome additional partners to make commitments.
