Evaluation and Recommendations: Simplifying Zones and Uses

Prince George’s current zoning ordinance has more than 73 zone districts. Can you imagine trying to thumb through 73 zoning codes and regulations? It’s like reading a surgical manual on operation procedures and you have never been to med school!

Clarion has recommended that we consolidate and restructure our zones and regulations to 43. It’s a start…Zone consolidation helps support mixed-use, transit oriented development, and revitalization. Making sure we get the right growth in the right locations.
