One of the biggest questions currently facing Prince George’s County is where growth should take place in order to increase economic vitality and achieve a higher quality of life. There is currently no “downtown Prince George’s” and more and more people believe that the County needs to develop one or more clearly defined centers of economic activity.
On Saturday, June 15th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM the Plan Prince George’s Town Meeting will take place at the University of Maryland’s Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center. The central purpose of the meeting is to get input from residents, organizations and business leaders from around the County about where future growth should take place.
Please register now to attend this interactive town meeting. You will have the opportunity to participate in discussions and then use computers and voting key pads to express your views on what our priorities should be. Information emerging from this public participation process will be submitted to the Prince George’s County Council for action later this year.
