Planning Board Overview

The Prince George’s County Planning Board, together with the Montgomery County Planning Board make up The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission – a bi-county agency set up under State law in 1927 to acquire, develop, maintain and administer a regional system of parks and administer a general plan for the physical development of both counties.  In Prince George’s County, the agency also administers the public recreation program.

A quasi-judicial body, the Planning Board’s responsibilities include supervising preparation of land use plans and comprehensive zoning maps, advising the County Council on zoning map amendment and special exception applications, and reviewing and approving site plans.  The Board also oversees the Commission’s work in the County, as carried out by the Parks and Recreation and Planning Departments.
