This document contains text and maps of the Approved Transit District Development Plan and Transit District Overlay Zoning Map Amendment for the West Hyattsville Transit District Overlay Zone. This plan will amend the 1998 West Hyattsville Approved Transit District Development Plan for the Transit District Overlay Zone and portions of the 1994 Planning Area 68 Master Plan. Developed by the Commission 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 amended West Hyattsville Transit District Development Plan (TDDP). It controls and guides the use and development of all land within the amended 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.
