Land Use Ethics Law Information and Forms

This plan will update the 1993 Subregion V Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment and contains policy recommendations to reinforce countywide land use policies or amend policy area boundaries in the 2002 County Approved General Plan. On October 26, 2012, the Prince George’s County Circuit Court Order reversed the September 9, 2009, District Council approval of the 2009 Subregion 5 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment. Until the updated plan and SMA are re-approved, the approved master plan reverts to the 1993 Subregion V Master Plan. The process for approving a new master plan/SMA for Subregion 5 restarted with the Joint Public Hearing held on April 11, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Hearing Room, County Administration Building, 1st Floor, located at 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive Upper Marlboro, MD 20772. Testimony received for the original Joint Public Hearing held on March 31, 2009, were entered into the record at the upcoming Joint Public Hearing. The date of this hearing was advertised in county newspapers of record, and notification letters were mailed to all property owners in the planning area. Copies of the 2009 Preliminary Subregion 5 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment may be obtained from Planning Information Services (301-952-3208), Lower Level, County Administration Building, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

Please note that at least 30 days prior to the date of the Joint Public Hearing any request for intensification of zoning or land use must be accompanied by a signed affidavit that attests to contributions to elected officials made during the preceding 36 months. For your convenience, here is a link to the affidavit form(s) and filing instructions.

Chronology of Planning Activities

The Planning Board and the County Council held the joint public hearing for this project on March 31, 2009. There were 61 speakers and approximately 350 people in attendance. Staff subsequently prepared a digest of testimony that analyzed comments received at the joint public hearing in a document using the plan and SMA framework for its organization. The digest of testimony includes the exhibit numbers and testifiers, summaries of the testimony, staff analyses, identification of properties referenced in zoning change requests, and staff recommendations. This document was the subject of a work session with the Planning Board on June 18, 2009. On June 25, 2009, the Planning Board adopted the plan and endorsed the SMA with the adoption of PGCPB Resolution No. 09-109.

On July 20, 2009, the District (County) Council’s Committee-of-the-Whole held a work session on the Subregion 5 Adopted Plan and Endorsed SMA. In this work session, the Council provided staff with a list of revisions to the endorsed sectional map amendment.

The Adopted Subregion 5 Master Plan and Endorsed Sectional Map Amendment consists of the Preliminary Master Plan and proposed SMA and the following documents:

On September 9, 2009, the District Council approved the Subregion 5 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment (SMA). The approved plan and SMA consists of the adopted and endorsed documents along with District Council Resolution 61-2009.

On October 20, 2009, an SMA revisory petition was filed for 76.3 acres known as the Hamptons property located within the boundaries of the approved Subregion 5 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment. The site is described as Parcels B, C, D, E, F, K, L, and Parcel 133 on Tax Map 45, located in planning area 85A on the west side of Dyson Road, approximately 500 feet north of its intersection with Brandywine Road. The petition requested that the subject property, zoned R-S and R-R, be placed in the M-X-T Zone. The SMA revisory petition hearing took place on November 17, 2009, and resulted in the District Council approving Zoning Ordinance 20-2009, which rezoned the subject property to the M-X-T Zone upon the applicant’s agreeing to one condition of approval stating that "prior to approval of any permits on the subject property, the owners shall obtain approval of a detailed site plan from the Planning Board and District Council."

On March 8, 2010, the District Council voted to approve Zoning Ordinance 3-2010, the revisory petition submitted by Jose Mararac, of MCQ Auto, the property owner. This decision reverts part of Lot 16 (0.5 acre) at 15717 Livingston Road in Accokeek to its presectional map amendment C-M (Commercial-Miscellaneous) zoning. The property had been placed in the R-R (Rural-Residential) Zone in the 2009 sectional map amendment.
