M-NCPPC Prince George’s County Planning Board Announces
New Web Platform to View Weekly Meetings
UPPER MARLBORO, MD – The Prince George’s County Planning Board (Planning Board) of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) announced today that the agency will be updating the public web portal that is used to view the Prince George’s County Planning Board’s weekly meetings and the Prince George’s County Planning Department’s Subdivision and Development Review Committee bi-weekly meetings. Effective Thursday, December 15, 2022, viewers may visit https://www.mncppc.org/883/Watch-Meetings to access the link to the Granicus platform to watch the live stream of meetings, view videos of past meetings, and access or download agendas and supporting documents. The platform update is necessary for continued maximum compatibility, transparency, security, and ADA compliance.
“For more than a decade, M-NCPPC has offered video viewings of the weekly Prince George’s County Planning Board meetings to inform County residents and stakeholders on land use cases and development applications,” said Peter A. Shapiro, Chair of the Prince George’s County Planning Board. “Residents and stakeholders will continue to have easy access to watch the Planning Board’s weekly meetings and be able to view or download agendas, staff reports, presentations, and supporting documents via their computer, smartphone, or tablet at any time from their remote locations.”
Archived videos of meetings prior to December 15, 2022, will continued to be stored and posted online. To view videos of past meetings, the public may access the link from the agency’s website or view on the Planning Department’s YouTube page (https://www.youtube.com/user/PGPlanning). After December 15, 2022, the former IQM2 platform (http://mncppc.iqm2.com/Citizens/Default.aspx) will no longer be the public portal to view live meetings of Prince George's County Planning Board or Subdivision and Development Review Committee.
