[ARCHIVED] PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY COUNCIL TRANSITIONS TO HYBRID MEETINGS TUESDAY, MARCH 15TH

Hybrid Sessions to Include Virtual and In-Person Options

The Prince George’s County Council will transition from completely virtual to hybrid meetings on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, offering residents the option of participating in sessions and public hearings virtually, or in person at the Wayne K. Curry Administration Building, 1301 McCormick Drive in Largo, MD. 

Council meetings will be held at reduced capacity and adhere to social distancing guidelines. Safety precautions such as masks for in-person participation are strongly encouraged.

Council Chair Calvin S. Hawkins, II, says the Council is prepared to safely welcome residents who want to participate in the legislative process onsite.  

“Following the expiration of the County’s Declaration of Emergency, and as Covid-19 numbers continue to decline, incorporating an in-person option for participating in the Council process makes room for residents to join us for meetings.  The Council will still offer virtual and mail-in options, so residents may participate in the environment that is most comfortable for them.  The Council looks forward to safely engaging with residents as the County charts its path forward from the Covid-19 crisis.”

The Council will continue to accept written testimony or comments for public hearings and committee meetings via the eComment portal. Eligible items are posted weekly on the following webpage: https://pgccouncil.us/Speak.  While electronic submittals utilizing the Council’s eComment portal are preferred, comments and written correspondence may also be emailed to: ClerkoftheCouncil@co.pg.md.us or faxed to (301) 952-5178. 

County Council sessions are available for Live and On-Demand viewing HERE.
