Featured Development Projects

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (the Commission) and the Prince George’s County Council are generally responsible for development review within Prince George's County. The City’s role in the process is advisory in nature, with a few exceptions. The Prince George’s County Council delegated authority to the City to hear and decide requests for variances and departures from the Prince George’s County Zoning Ordinance.  In addition, the City has been delegated authority over Alternative Compliance from the County’s Landscape Manual, nonconforming uses, minor revisions to special exception site plans and certain detailed site plans. Details about the County’s development review process and requirements can be found on the Planning Board website.

Jesuit Property Retreat Center Proposal

Representatives of The Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) contacted the City to build a religious retreat center on a portion of their property. At this point, all that is known is that the project would consist of approximately 45,000 square feet on about 36 acres of land located on the south side of MD 450, between Sacred Heart Church and Race Track Road. A stakeholders meeting was held on December 1, 2020. 

2/25/21: The Jesuit Property Proposal was scheduled to be discussed at March 1, 2021 City Council Meeting but that discussion is now postponed until further notice.
