The Strategic Framework for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) in Prince George’s County is a countywide planning document for attracting TOD to Prince George’s County as a means of achieving General Plan development goals and objectives. The framework discusses the history and employment of TOD, including other jurisdictions’ best practices and lessons learned elsewhere in the metropolitan region and the United States. It discusses opportunities, challenges and policymaking issues associated with employing TOD planning in Prince George’s County. The framework provides criteria for evaluating the TOD potential of 15 Metrorail and 2 stand-alone MARC (commuter rail) stations in the county, and includes descriptions of those station areas. It provides a case study of TOD planning for the West Hyattsville Metrorail station area and makes planning, community outreach, procedural and interagency and intergovernmental coordination recommendations for attracting TOD to the county.
