Prince George's County Approved General Plan
The General Plan makes comprehensive recommendations for guiding future development within Prince George's County, Maryland.

The plan also designates seven corridors where more intensive development should be encouraged. It proposes three development tiers within the county (the Developed, enveloping, and Rural Tiers) and policies to guide development within each. The plan recommends goals, objectives, policies, and strategies for the following plan elements: Environmental Infrastructure, Transportation Systems, Public Facilities, Economic Development, Housing, Revitalization, Urban Design, and Historic Preservation. Plan implementation through future intergovernmental coordination, public participation, planning, regulatory measures, and plan monitoring is described.
Plan Prince George’s 2035, an update of the county’s General Plan, is underway and will result from months of planning by experts in the field and the engagement of county stakeholders and residents on these issues.
