More than 45 community members participated in the final project meeting.  A project summary was provided, alongside major project recommendations.  These include the creation of a Scenic Byway Committee comprised of community members and agency staff to evaluate the recommendations contained in the forthcoming Rural Villages Study and the Croom and Aquasco Roads Scenic Byway Plan Elements: A Corridor Management Program for these Roadways and Other Related Star-Spangled Banner Historic Roadways in Prince George's County.  Both documents provide a range of recommendations for better ensuring that future development supports rural character.

Staff presented new information about the cost of transportation improvements and showed a drive through simulation of one of the village development scenarios.  There was a discussion about the scenario, as well as a number of other community concerns.  Staff did not present as much new information as planned, so a final community meeting will be scheduled in the spring.  The purpose will be to discuss outstanding concerns and recommendations from the study and the Star-Spangled Banner Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan for community consideration.

Staff presented a brief summary of the project to a well-attended community forum held by Council Member Mel Franklin. Community members raised questions about the cost of transportation improvements, wastewater treatment options, and more. Our final meeting in the fall will include responses to these questions amongst other topics.

  • The community members in attendance also participated in a general and visual preference survey. The purpose of the survey was to gather some general demographic information from participants, understand areas of community concern, and begin a conversation about the design of future development in the study area. Community members used electronic polling equipment to take the survey which allowed everyone to see the results of their survey choices immediately. To see the results, use this link
  • Some additional analysis of the survey results is being prepared for the next project meeting.  Please stay tuned for an announcement of the next meeting date!
