Our city’s lack of a reliable and cohesive public transit system is not just an inconvenience for our citizens, but in the current economical crunch, an ever-growing liability. In our first hour, we debate Baltimore’s proposed Red Line. How can we build it? Where do we put it? Can Baltimore City afford to put a transit system underground, and if we can’t, should we wait until funding is available? How will it affect our community?
The panel for this segment included:
- Jaime Kendrick, Deputy Director, Baltimore City Department of Transportation
- Warren Smith, President of the Greater Westhills Community Association, and member of the Citizens Advisory Council for the Red Line
- Darryl Jurkiewicz, President of the Canton Community Association
- Dan Pontious, Executive Director, Citizens Planning and Housing Association
