CMA Joint Public Hearing Scheduled for March 23rd to be Rescheduled
The State and County governments have declared public health emergencies, due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak. On March 17, 2020, the Prince George’s County Council adopted CR-10-2020, an Emergency Resolution that mandated the continuance of public meetings, sessions and hearings of the District Council for a period of sixty (60) days or until such time as the statewide emergency is lifted.
Accordingly, the Joint Public Hearing of the District Council and the Prince George’s County Planning Board of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, concerning the proposed Countywide Map Amendment (CMA), scheduled for March 23, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., at the Prince George’s Community College, must be postponed and rescheduled, after the sixty (60) days have expired or the statewide emergency has been lifted.
The public hearing is part of a process leading to the approval of a new zoning map, thereby implementing the zones contained in the new Zoning Ordinance for Prince George’s County adopted by the Council through Council Bill CB-13-2018 on October 23, 2018.
The CMA is intended to implement the Zoning Ordinance by placing property in the new zone that is closest in uses and purposes to the property’s current zone. Upon rescheduling, the Joint Public Hearing would provide all interested persons the opportunity to express their views on the CMA
