Urban Land Institute Technical Assistance Panel Report (ULI TAP) (August 25, 2011)
The objective of ULI Washington’s Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) program is to provide expert, multidisciplinary advice on land use and real estate issues facing public agencies and nonprofit organizations in the Washington Metropolitan area.
The panel stated that substantial change is possible over time with policy and leadership focused on one station, which they suggested should be the Branch Avenue station. In order to guide this process the panel also recommended that a liaison for the Green Line corridor be created in the County Executive’s office. Commending the county’s AAA credit rating, the TAP suggested using the many tools and incentives that the county has at its disposal to partner with the private sector investors.
