Description

This project provides for planning needed to support redevelopment in the Long Branch Sector Plan area. The construction of the Purple Line will influence the development potential of the sector plan area on both a short- and long-term basis. Two Purple Line stations are planned in Long Branch - one on Arliss Street, just to the north of Piney Branch Road, and the other on University Boulevard, just south of its intersection with Piney Branch Road. The County will coordinate through a multi-departmental approach that will include the Office of County Executive, Department of Transportation, Department of Housing and Community Affairs and the Silver Spring Regional Service Center. Activities will also be planned in partnership with the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), property owners and businesses in this sector plan area with input from the surrounding community. The State will have the primary responsibility for coordinating efforts to mitigate impacts of the Purple Line in Long Branch. As such, efforts are needed to help ensure that the multitude of businesses in Long Branch can prosper during the construction of the Purple Line, and just as importantly, after it is operational. In order to minimize any disruption that may affect the Long Branch business community, a multi-prong approach will be implemented through: 1) marketing assistance that highlights the availability and presence of existing businesses during construction; 2) training, available to all businesses along the Purple Line, that will focus on adjusting to a new marketplace and developing business opportunities during construction; 3) signage that will direct patrons to shops, restaurants and available parking; and 4) technical assistance designed to strengthen existing companies. This strategy is consistent with the Purple Line Corridor Community Development Agreement's goal to help locally established businesses prosper both during and after the construction period and to minimize disruptions during construction.
