The Prince George's County Planning Department has been engaged in a work program effort to examine risk and land use compatibility issues around the county's four general aviation airports: Potomac Airfield in Friendly, Washington Executive Airpark in Clinton, Freeway Airport in Mitchellville, and College Park Airport in College Park. The project is an outgrowth of several aircraft accidents in the neighborhoods close to Potomac Airfield during the mid-1990s and resulting residents' concerns. To help the staff further understand the issues and risks involved at Potomac Airfield and the other airports in the county, the Planning Department hired a team of aviation consultants to examine safety and land use compatibility issues around each airport, to research what is being done in other jurisdictions, and to recommend state-of-the-art approaches to address issues in Prince George's County.
