Approved Countywide Green Infrastructure Master Plan

Countywide Green Infrastructure Functional Master PlanThe Prince George's County Planning Department of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission has developed an Approved Countywide Green Infrastructure Plan. The 2002 Prince George's County Approved General Plan recommends that a Countywide Green Infrastructure Plan be prepared as a functional master plan to preserve designated green infrastructure elements and reflect the desired development pattern in the 2002 General Plan. The goal of the Countywide Green Infrastructure Plan is to identify existing green infrastructure elements throughout the county and propose conservation mechanisms to preserve, protect, and enhance these elements.

Green infrastructure is defined as an interconnected network of waterways, wetlands, woodlands, wildlife habitats, and other natural areas of countywide significance. The Countywide Green Infrastructure Plan describes goals, objectives, and policies for implementation and provides maps showing the identified elements of the green infrastructure including regulated areas, evaluation areas, and gap areas.
