This panel will highlight rail plans and efforts underway which support revitalization and healthy/sustainable communities in Delaware and Maryland. Starting with a regional perspective looking at the Federal Railroad Administration’s NEC FUTURE project, the session will then dive down into specific projects and plans in the two states. Of special interest will be discussion of Transit-Oriented Development opportunities around specific rail stations, and examples on how agencies have come together with other planning partners and rail stakeholders to advance improvements to benefit their communities as part of large public investment projects.
