Prince George’s County Planning Department Hosts Open House Events for the

Central Avenue-Blue/Silver Line Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment

 

 

LARGO, MD – The Prince George’s County Planning Department of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission will host two in-person public open house events for the Central Avenue-Blue/Silver Line Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment (SMA) on Wednesday, March 13, 2024, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, March 16, 2024 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover. Community members and stakeholders are invited to review, ask questions, and provide feedback on revised vision statements, draft plan goals, market study results, and preliminary urban design visualizations. Planners will deliver summary presentations twice each day: Wednesday, March 13 at 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.; Saturday, March 16 at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The community is encouraged to select one date and session as the same information will be shared at each event.

 

The community’s input and feedback will guide the development of the plan’s strategies and priorities; help shape the future of the Central Avenue-Blue/Silver Line Sector Plan area; and address future development in and around Capitol Heights, Addison Road-Seat Pleasant, and Morgan Boulevard Metro Stations – which are designated as Local Transit Centers in Plan Prince George’s 2035 (Plan 2035). The open house events will be the last opportunities for the community members and stakeholders to contribute comments before the plan is drafted for public review and input in the fall of 2024.
