PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY COUNCIL RESPONDS TO NEWS THAT LOGISTICS CENTER IS NOT COMING TO WESTPHALIA

 

The Prince George’s County Council is aware that the company that planned to build a Merchandise Logistics Center at the Westphalia Towne Center is no longer pursuing that site.

The County Council, in its role as the County’s zoning authority, was looking forward to public hearings on the pending development applications for the planned Merchandise Logistics Center at Westphalia, and an important opportunity to address concerns expressed by residents and other stakeholders. Until the applications are formally withdrawn, the Council cannot comment further on the development process.

The County Council serves to encourage, enable and support economic development, and to facilitate smart growth and major economic development projects. To this end, we share the optimism of County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, that a future location will be found within Prince George's County for this project.

The Council will continue to work with the County Executive and with the communities we represent to ensure economic development and the increased services and amenities it brings, flourishes throughout our County.
