General Plan (To be used for reference only)

The General Plan (2002) makes comprehensive recommendations for guiding future development within Prince George's County, Maryland. The plan designates more than two dozen centers, which are focal points for increased efforts to concentrate development that can take advantage of existing or future investments in high capacity mass transit services. The plan also designates seven corridors where more intensive development should be encouraged. It proposes three development tiers within the county (the Developed, Enveloping, and Rural Tiers) and policies to guide development within each. The plan recommends goals, objectives, policies, and strategies for the following plan elements:
  • Economic Development
  • Environmental Infrastructure
  • Historic Preservation
  • Housing
  • Public Facilities
  • Revitalization
  • Transportation Systems
