The Approved Marlboro Pike Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment (SMA) comprises text, maps,illustrations, and pictures. The plan will amend portions of the Approved Master Plan and Adopted Sectional Map Amendment for Suitland-District Heights and Vicinity, Planning Areas 75A and 75B (1985-master plan; 1986-sectional map amendment). The plan will also implement the 2002 Prince George's County Approved General Plan. Developed with broad public participation, this document presents background information, the vision for the area, and a discussion of the seven elements that frame the vision-Community Development and Land Use, Transportation, Natural Environment, Public Facilities, Economic Development, Implementation and Design Guidelines. The plan recommends the designation of seven priority land development areas to encourage the revitalization and enhancement of
the existing major commercial nodes along the corridor. The plan contains policies and strategies for land use, economic development, urban design, transportation systems (including roadways, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and trail facilities), public facilities, and revitalization. The overall objective of these policies and strategies is to create a livable, pedestrian friendly and vibrant community for residents in the sector plan area by creating mixed-use development and commercial centers with a positive sense of place that will attract new residents, quality retail, and jobs-while preserving and strengthening the existing residential neighborhoods. The SMA recommends zoning changes to allow implementation of the plan
vision and the land use concepts in the sector plan.
