The Rural Villages Study and the Prince George's Star-Spangled Banner Scenic Byway (SSBSB) Corridor Management Plan are two Planning Department efforts aimed at the preservation and enhancement of rural communities in southeastern Prince George’s County. The work for these two initiatives is being coordinated under a single effort to efficiently analyze common issues with community members. Through a series of workshops, community members will be asked to define the type of landscapes, roadway design, architectural features, and other elements that they value as part of a rural community. The workshops and community input will identify recommendations that may cover a variety of issues from design to development standards for the public, and possibly the private, realms. Through the completion of the Prince George's Star-Spangled Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan, the county will be eligible for state and federal funding opportunities for improvements along the corridor. This could include funding for promotion of this historic route as the bicentennial celebration of the War of 1812 approaches.
