The sector plan amends portions of the 2000 Approved Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment for the Heights and Vicinity (Planning Area 76A), 2006 Approved Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment for the Henson Creek-South Potomac Planning Area, 2008 Approved Branch Avenue Corridor Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment, and 1993 Approved Subregion 5 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment. This sector plan builds on the opportunities for growth and revitalization within communities along the Central Branch Avenue Corridor created by the potential future growth at Joint Base Andrews, the planned expansion of Southern Maryland Hospital, and the planned fixed guideway transit line along MD 5. These events, coupled with plans for transit-oriented development at the Branch Avenue Metro Station, create opportunities to reposition key commercial and employment centers and offer a broader range of housing options. The sector plan highlights these and other key opportunities and constraints. It presents redevelopment programs to guide future growth and revitalization at future transit nodes and within suburban strip shopping centers in six focus areas along Branch Avenue and the Allentown, Suitland, and St. Barnabas Road commercial corridors. Developed with extensive public participation, this document presents background information; plan goals; focus area visions and recommendations pertaining to land use, future zoning, development programs, and concepts; corridorwide recommendations for land use, community design, the environment, transportation, recreation and parks, schools, and historic preservation; and implementation strategies.
