Our Commitment

Pathways to Opportunity: A Community Development Agreement for the Purple Line Corridor articulates a collective vision for vibrant economic and community development along the corridor and strategies to achieve that vision. The Agreement represents a strong commitment by public, private and community stakeholders to work together to leverage the major Purple Line transit investment to create a place of opportunity for all who live, work, and invest in the corridor through the collective pursuit of four goals.

The Opportunity
