Planning Commission Considers Both BRT and Park Option for "The Cut"
The Planning Commission will now consider both BRT and park options for City Branch, the below-grade corridor stretching from Broad Street to 27th Street where freight tracks used to run. Next week, PCPC will release the final version of its Central District Plan, which will include the park and recreation space, not originally included in the drafted document. Although the park alternative will be added to the plan, PCPC will maintain their main position for the primary used being for transportation with a possibility of a recreation trail or other recreation space done in conjunction.
When PCPC evaluated all the needs for the district, it decided that part of the city doesn't necessarily need more park space, but the transit line is something they feel can be a real necessity.
