Melwood-Old Marlboro Pike Commercial Area

Project Description


The Melwood-Old Marlboro Pike Revitalization Study builds off of the 2009 Approved Subregion 6 Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment. The Planning Board and County Council requested that special attention be focused on the Melwood-Old Marlboro Pike commercial and industrial area to improve and strengthen as a service hub.

The Melwood Study develops a road map by which the existing employment and commercial areas can be enhanced and development opportunities maximized by addressing key issues. Issues identified include vehicular congestion and circulation as well as pedestrian circulation and connectivity, particularly to the surrounding residential neighborhoods.
