The Montgomery County Planning Board supported most of the recommendations made by county staff for the upcoming revitalization of New Hampshire Avenue, but split over how to improve the residential and commercial district without pushing out the ethnic businesses and low-income residents who live there.

The staff report recommended, among other things, the light-rail option for the Purple Line, mixed-use residential and retail space in the five major shopping centers at the Takoma/Langley Crossroads and efforts to keep affordable housing options open for residents.
