Several north College Park residents testified at Tuesday's mayor and council meeting against a potential footbridge connecting their neighborhood and the future redeveloped Greenbelt Metro area.
They were concerned about the impact a bridge could have on noise, crime, and the environment. Several also said a bridge built high enough for a train to pass underneath wouldn't fit in with the residential area.
But such a connection would allow for greater access from north College Park to trails and future retail, Councilman Patrick Wojahn (Dist. 1) said.
Details about the exact location, appearance and financing have yet to be determined, if the bridge is actually built.
The discussion continues here. What do you think about having a pedestrian bridge connecting the Hollywood neighborhood with the redeveloped Greenbelt Metro area?
