About Planning

County Administration Building, Upper Marlboro, MD Welcome to the web site of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) Prince George's County Planning Department. The M-NCPPC was created by the Maryland General Assembly in 1927 to develop and operate public park systems and provide land use planning for the physical development of the majority of Montgomery and Prince George's Counties, and to operate the public recreation program in Prince George's County. State-of-the-art facilities and national, regional and state award-winning programs have been the result.      

The role of the Planning Department is best described in its mission statement: "to help preserve, protect and manage the County's resources by providing the highest quality planning services and growth management guidance and by facilitating effective intergovernmental and citizen involvement through education and technical assistance."

Prince George's County boasts a diverse population of nearly 850,000 residents increasingly interested in the land development process, the services we provide, and opportunities for citizen involvement. The Department values community engagement and is committed to enhancing knowledge and participation of the public in every element of its work.
