Overview

The Adelphi Road–UMGC-UMD Purple Line Station Area Sector Plan will be the guiding document for future development surrounding the Adelphi Rd – University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC)/University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) Purple Line Station and the surrounding neighborhoods, for the next 25 years. The Sector Plan will advance the goals of the Prince George’s County General Plan – Plan 2035, and will build upon the recommendations provided in the Purple Line Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Study that was conducted by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission in 2013. This plan will incorporate and build upon the ongoing Northern Gateway, Purple Line, and UMGC-UMD campus planning efforts. The document will replace the 1989 Approved Master Plan for Langley Park-College Park-Greenbelt and Vicinity, within the Sector Plan area. The Plan will examine the existing conditions and issues, and assets and opportunities, and identify strategies to implement the County’s goal of maximizing the benefits from the massive public investment in transit infrastructure through targeted transit-oriented development and accessibility improvements in the Sector Plan area through an inclusive public engagement process. 

All properties within Prince George’s County outside of the City of Laurel are currently proposed to be rezoned to the new zones contained within the County’s adopted 2018 Zoning Ordinance through the ongoing Countywide Map Amendment. Should properties require further zoning changes to implement the recommendations of this Sector Plan, a sectional map amendment will be conducted concurrently.
