The Prince George’s County Planning Board has made available for review and comment the Preliminary Greenbelt Metro Area and MD 193 Corridor Sector Plan and Proposed Sectional Map Amendment.
This community-based plan and sectional map amendment (SMA) provide “a clear vision” for the future of the Greenbelt Metro Station Metropolitan Center and the portion of the University Boulevard (MD 193) Corridor that passes through the City of Greenbelt and Town of Berwyn Heights between the Metro Green Line and Hanover Parkway. The proposed sector plan builds on the rich and innovative planning history of Greenbelt, Berwyn Heights, and neighboring College Park, and it should be noted that the City of Greenbelt celebrates its 75th anniversary this year.
Community participation and input began in late 2010, culminating in a series of intensive community workshops in the fall of 2011 and spring of 2012. Additional community input was solicited through a series of civic association and small stakeholder group meetings, worksessions with City of Greenbelt planning staff, briefings of the Greenbelt Advisory Planning Board, municipal briefings, and information gathering sessions.
