Planning Areas

  • Prince George's County is divided into 7 subregions which are further divided into 36 planning areas (PA), excluding the City of Laurel. The City of Laurel has its own planning authority.

  • Planning areas are similar in size and each is a fairly cohesive district that is typically bordered by a major highway, political boundary and/or natural feature such as a stream valley. See map for more information about a planning area.
