Park & Planning
We believe that community input and participation, reasonable public notice and transparency must become basic elements of the planning process in Prince George’s County. This is essential to ensure comprehensive planning and successful development and avoid situations similar to this.

To that end, we suggest the following changes be made to the Planning Board’s process:

  • Require that the item be placed on an agenda 30 days after the staff report’s issuance and 30 days after a municipality has acted on the matter (with accompanying signage). Current practice limits the opportunity for input from residents in the immediate area and those of neighboring communities.
  • Seek out additional meeting spots and rotate Planning Board meetings through the county on a regular basis to encourage community participation in the planning process. The distance to Upper Marlboro and lengthy waits greatly diminishes the likelihood that citizens will attend.

This is our community, so let’s participate in the planning process. Explore below for helpful links from the maze over at the Prince George’s County Planning Board. Remember, you can also search for specific projects by case number or keywords.
