Subregion I is located in northern Prince George's County and is bordered by Montgomery, Howard and Anne Arundel Counties. There are no municipalities in the Subregion. However, it is adjacent to the City of Laurel which has its own planning and zoning authority. Planning Area 64 consists largely of Federal properties such as the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center and NASA. Federal properties have their own master plan and are not subject to the County's land use regulations.
