Landover Metro Area and MD 202 Corridor Sector Plan and SMA
You are welcome to attend the Prince George’s County Council, sitting as the District Council Worksession for testimony from the February 18, 2014 Joint Public Hearing on the Preliminary Landover Metro Area and MD 202 Corridor Sector Plan and Proposed SMA. The worksession is scheduled for Tuesday, May 6th, First Floor Hearing Room, CAB, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro, Maryland 20772.

The recommendations are intended to create a “sense of place,” stimulate new residential and commercial investment at existing shopping centers and underutilized properties, encourage streetscape improvements at key intersections and along the MD 202 Corridor and provide pedestrians and bicyclists safer access to the Metro and adjacent communities.
The sector plan area contains approximately 528 acres. The boundary includes the MD 202 corridor from just west of the Baltimore Washington Parkway (MD 295) to Barlowe Road and the commercial, multifamily, institutional and industrial properties immediately adjacent to the corridor between the two intersections.
