Welcome to the SOECA Purple Line issues page.
This page includes pdfs and some videos from MTA and documents about about SOECA's activities related to the Purple Lina.
The most recent documents are at the top. You will need a PDF reader to open most of these files; there are several free programs that will do that, most popularly Adobe Acrobat Reader or Preview for the Mac. The .wmv files are Windows Media files, which can be viewed on a PC or using the Windows Media player or the Flip4Mac Quicktime plugin on a Mac.These comments include as an exhibit the recent status report prepared by the The Working Group for Residential Wayne Avenue Purple Line Design,a collaborative effort of four civic associations along Wayne Avenue. Another copy of that status report and other documents compiled by the Working Group are below.
