Prince George's County Planning Department

Project Overview

The Prince George's County Council, sitting as the District Council, initiated the Greenbelt Metro Area and MD 193 Corridor Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment (SMA) on May 17, 2011 (see CR-40-2011).  This planning effort will follow the 18-month planning process established by the County Council in 2005, and received a 6-month extension in January 2012 to provide additional time for community consensus building and agency coordination.

Preplanning and initial discussions with residents, employees, business and property owners, agency staff, municipal leaders, and other key stakeholders began in the fall of 2010 to help the project team further define the project and establish sector plan boundaries. This initial phase of outreach is being followed was followed by a number of community and stakeholder meetings and workshops between the summer of 2011 and spring of 2012.  These sessions resulted in the creation of a consensus vision and plan for the future development and design character for the Greenbelt Metro area and MD 193 Corridor.

The District Council approved the sector plan and SMA on March 5, 2013 (See CR-14-2013 and CR-15-2013).  Over the next weeks and months planning staff will revise the sector plan and SMA per the direction of the Planning Board and District Council and a final plan document will be printed and made available to the public in the spring or early summer of 2013.
