The Prince George's County Planning Department hosted an Urban Land Institute Technical Assistance Panel (ULI TAP) roundtable discussion on September 3 and 4, 2014. (ULI TAPs are designed to deliver honest, unbiased answers to land use and real estate questions that defy easy solutions.) The purpose of the ULI TAP was to suggest ways to help create a walkable, attractive, transit-oriented community at the Prince George's Plaza Metro Station through strategic public and private investment.
The nine-member ULI TAP panel presented strategies to build an ongoing and planned development activity to help meld disconnected parts of the area into a compact, walkable, urban place, and to leverage limited county and state fiscal resources to help realize a new downtown around the Prince George's Plaza Metro Station for the lowest cost. The ULI TAP also identified short-term and long-term strategies for development and rebranding that can be phased in over time. These recommendations will help inform the upcoming community design charrette. Please click here to view the ULI TAP presentations.
Interested in what an environmental setting of a historic site is? Read on! An environmental setting is determined at the time of designation, whether by council action, master plan, or, in the case of an historic resource being elevated to historic site status, the Historic Preservation Committee. The default environmental setting is typically the entire parcel or parcels in question, but it can be modified at the time of designation or at a later date. You can see all of the County's environmental settings on PGAtlas by clicking "Advanced Mapping" and selecting the "Historic Sites Environmental Settings" on the "Historic" map layer.
