Opportunities for Public Comment Still Available
The Prince George’s County Council’s Committee of the Whole heard public comment on proposed Zoning Ordinance Rewrite legislation on Tuesday, July 17, the final opportunity for public comment during a Committee of the Whole work session.
Residents unable to attend the Committee of the Whole meetings, who still wish to offer public comment, are encouraged to submit their comments online at https://pgccouncil.us/ZOR, send an email to ZOR@co.pg.md.us , or mail a letter to the Clerk of the Council, County Administration Building, Second Floor, 14741 Gov. Oden Bowie Dr., in Upper Marlboro, Maryland 20772.
The County Council, in partnership with the Prince George’s County Planning Department, is conducting a comprehensive update of the County’s 50-year-old Zoning Ordinance to streamline zoning laws and create a user-friendly document supporting the County’s vision for smart growth, economic development and improved quality of life for residents.
Prince George’s County Council Chair Dannielle Glaros (D) – District 3, says community input remains critical as the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite legislative process moves forward.
“The Council has presented a number of opportunities for residents to publicly weigh in on the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite, and we appreciate those who joined us in Upper Marlboro for our work sessions. While the established period for public comment before Committee of the Whole has ended, our work with residents to update the ordinance continues, and we look forward to receiving public comments submitted online, via email, or in a letter addressed to the Clerk of the Council.”
