New Carrollton Transit District Development Plan

The Approved New Carrollton Transit District Development Plan and Transit District Overlay Zone is available on-line.

Project Description


The transit district development plan (TDDP)/transit district overlay zone (TDOZ) guides land use and development of all properties at or near the New Carrollton Metro station consistent with transit-oriented development (TOD) principles.
The plan also:
  • Enhances pedestrian and vehicular connectivity between properties north of the Metro station and those south of the station
  • Establishes community and developer expectations for market-based TOD development
  • Focuses county, state, and federal resources to stimulate TOD at the New Carrollton Metro Station
  • Identifies funding/financial gaps to address through public-private partnerships
  • Refines the 2004 planning study's recommended public infrastructure improvement program
  • Streamlines existing TDOZ and other regulations to respond to market realities

Project Boundary


The New Carrollton TDOZ is located in Planning Area 69 (Bladensburg-New Carrollton and vicinity), immediately west of the Orange Line Metro/Amtrak/MARC rail alignment. The TDOZ contains approximately 71 acres surrounding the intersection of Harkins and Ellin Roads.
