This document contains text and maps of the approved transit district development plan (TDDP) and transit district overlay zoning map amendment for the Capitol Heights Metro Station and vicinity. This plan contains a new TDOZ and transit district overlay zone (TDOZ) and amends portions of the 1993 Approved Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment for Landover and Vicinity (Planning Area 72) and the 1986 Approved Master Plan for Suitland-District Heights and Vicinity, Planning Areas 75A and 75B. Developed by M-NCPPC with the assistance of the community, this plan contains a comprehensive development vision, development review process requirements, and form-based development standards and guidelines. Together, these elements comprise the Capitol Heights Transit District Development Plan (TDDP). It controls and guides the use and development of all land within the Transit District Overlay Zone (TDOZ) from the initial submittal of plans to the issuance of permits. Together, the TDOZ and TDDP are intended to foster transit-oriented development that increases the use of public transit, maximizes return on investment in transit facilities and services, encourages appropriate development near transit stations with coordinated urban design elements, and increases local tax revenues.
