The project team compiled a general summary of the comments that were heard during the AA/DEIS comment period. Public comments on the AA/DEIS were accepted for three months from October 17, 2008 through January 17, 2009. These comments were reviewed and considered by the State of Maryland as part of the decision-making process for the selection of the Preferred Alternative for the Purple Line. The comments are all part of the formal public record and will be responded to formally in the Final Environmental Impact Statement. Please note that a more detailed summary and responses to the comments will be included in the Final Environmental Impact Statement.Click here to see what elected officials, community associations and community member said about the Purple Line AA/DEIS.
