Clarion Associates, lead consultants for the Prince George’s County Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations Rewrite, presented its evaluation and recommendations for how the County’s Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations should be restructured during three regional listening sessions in January and February 2015. Their comprehensive analysis is published in the Evaluation and Recommendations Report and is a result of Clarion’s yearlong review of the County’s current codes, regulations, and procedures.
The Report contains Clarion’s assessment of the problems with today’s regulations; as identified by the residents, business and property owners, developers, elected officials, and other interested Prince Georgians; proposes comprehensive recommendations for revising the Prince George’s County Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations; and contains a proposed annotated outline for how the new Zoning Ordinance should be rewritten. This document provides a catalyst for continued conversation with the community to help the County decide how to proceed in the preparation of new zoning and subdivision regulations. The findings in the Evaluation and Recommendations Report draw on the consultant’s experience and best practices that are in-place and effective for many jurisdictions across the country facing similar issues as Prince George’s County.
