One of the six guiding principles of the County’s General Plan, Plan 2035, is to create “Choice Communities.” Through placemaking and collaborative engagements, we can support our diverse and distinct communities and create vibrant places for everyone to enjoy. 

The Planning Department commissioned the Better Block Foundation to help execute three pilot projects by partnering with local communities and exploring placemaking strategies in their neighborhoods.  The pilot projects are focused in three of the County’s designated centers – Suitland, Riverdale, and Largo.  These collaborative efforts will play a key role in cultivating iconic destinations for people to live, work, play, and invest.
