next week on just up the pike . . .

A million new people are coming to Maryland in the next twenty years, and state planners want suggestions on how to house them. We'll have a re-cap of last night's Smart Growth Listening Session at Blake High School (pictured above), where local residents offered their two cents on how the state should grow.

Also: what happens when a government contractor from Poolesville starts taking the train to work? He decides to write a musical about the Purple Line. Check out our exclusive interview with Paul Stregevsky, the creator of Tracks: The Musical.

All this and more next week on Just Up The Pike!

Funny, the Purple Line and trains, and such evoked a similar idea, however it would be cut down to just one song concerning trains and the purple line in the production I envision.

Back in the 80's, a musical about capitol View Park was made, and their civic association has it on tape. I can't even begin to imagine what it's like.
