The Prince George’s County Planning Department of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) will host a Community Stakeholder Workshop and Open House for the U.S. Route 1 Land Redevelopment Study on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at the Beltsville Community Center, 3900 Sellman Road, Beltsville, Maryland to explore possible strategies for a more walkable, connected, and thriving corridor. Residents, business leaders, and other stakeholders will participate in an interactive workshop from 9:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to learn about findings from previous community engagement sessions, hear examples of successful case studies from across the country, and provide feedback to guide recommendations for future development along the Route 1 Corridor study area. M-NCPPC will offer an open house from 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. where planners and consultants will be available to answer questions on the study.
The U.S. Route 1 Land Redevelopment Study examines the 2010 Approved Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment for Subregion 1 and the area along the Route 1 Corridor boundary from Quimby Avenue to Sunnyside Avenue, adjacent to the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center and the immediate surrounding neighborhoods. Through collaboration, the community will help create recommendations for future development that will align with the approved master plan and sectional map amendment, improve the coordination among the commercial and industrial uses with the surrounding neighborhoods, enhance the visual appearance of the area, and ensure a pedestrian-friendly environment.
Interested participants should register for the workshop in advance. To access the link to the online registration form and additional details on the study (in English and Spanish), individuals may visit the Prince George’s County Planning Department’s website: https://pgplan.org/Rte1LRStudy.
