This development plan includes a design review process and standards to establish a framework for business and property owners, tenants, residents, County officials and staff to review planned new development or redevelopment within the Mixed- Use Town Center Zone. This rezoning effort is intended to foster redevelopment and revitalization to create a town center in Suitland that will include the County’s Suitland Manor redevelopment project. It will also implement the county’s 2002 General Plan Regional Center recommendation for this area that includes the Suitland Metro Station. The Mixed-Use Town Center Zone stipulates that regulations concerning the location, size and other provisions for all buildings and structures in the zone are as provided in an approved town center development plan. This document provides the following: a brief introduction and historical overview; overall development and design concepts; a specific long-range development concept that proposes areas for mixed-use and residential development with new and improved public spaces; specific design principles and standards to guide development necessary to create a town center; description of the local design review and special permit processes; inventory of existing uses and street right-of-way widths; the permitted uses and special permit process in the M-U-TC Zone; and recommended plant species.
