This information, based on staff and consultant analyses, helped guide the Prince George’s County Planning Department in making recommendations contained in the Preliminary General Plan and will also be used in the preparation of future plans. The report is divided into three parts. The Environment Infrastructure section describes background information and analyses for green infrastructure, woodland conservation, water quality, energy efficiency, green building, and outdoor lighting. The Transportation section describes the transportation model used to analyzed the mid-range (2005) impacts of the Preferred Development Alternative upon which the Preliminary Plan’s recommendations are based. The general implications of the model results are also discussed. The Public Facilities section describes background analyzed for schools, fire and rescue, police, and library facilities.
