COUNCIL CHAIR TODD M. TURNER AND COUNCIL MEMBER DERRICK LEON DAVIS ENCOURAGE RESIDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN BOWIE-MITCHELLVILLE & VICINITY MASTER PLAN KICKOFF EVENT
Virtual Kickoff Meeting Saturday, June 13th
Prince George’s County Council Chair Todd M. Turner (D – District 4) and Council Member Derrick Leon Davis (D- District 6) encourage residents to join a virtual (given the current state of emergency) kickoff meeting for the Bowie-Mitchellville and Vicinity Master Plan on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. The meeting will highlight the initiation of a new Master Plan for approximately 59 square miles of northeastern Prince George’s County, including the entire City of Bowie, Mitchellville, Collington and other surrounding communities.
Initiated by the Maryland-National Capital Planning and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) and the Prince George’s County Council, this is the first Master Plan update since the 2018 Council adoption of the new Zoning Rewrite Ordinance.
The Bowie-Mitchellville & Vicinity Master Plan will serve as a guiding document formulated through public engagement to address future development in the City of Bowie and surrounding communities. The plan will replace the 2010 Bowie State MARC Station Sector Plan, and the 2006 Bowie & Vicinity Master Plan, and will be based on Plan Prince George’s 2035.
Council Chair Turner and District 6 Council Member Derrick Leon Davis, both of whom represent areas covered in the Bowie-Mitchellville and Vicinity Master Plan, will welcome participants to the kickoff meeting on June 13th. Chair Turner discusses why public participation in this process is vital to its success.
“It is important for residents, property owners and stakeholders to play a role in shaping their communities – now and in the future. The Bowie-Mitchellville and Vicinity Master Plan will carefully examine existing conditions, including transportation, recreation and open space needs, and revisit the vision for the area. We want residents, businesses and others to be a part of the discussion and encourage them to participate.”
The Master Plan will involve additional public and community outreach through 2022. For more information, visit https://www.mncppc.org/3390/BowiePlan ,or contact the project team: BVMP@ppd.mncppc.org or call 301-952-3756.
