Development is largely determined by the availability and capacity of water and sewer service. Controlling the expansion of water and sewer service is the easiest and most effective way a jurisdiction can manage and phase growth.
Plan 2035 recommends placing properties that are located within the Growth Boundary, but which have not been approved for a water and sewer category change (which would allow for denser development) in Future Water and Sewer Service Areas. The Future Water and Sewer Service Areas are holding zones in which near-term development is deferred until additional residential capacity is required.
In 2035, Prince George’s County is the community of choice for families, businesses, and workers in the region.
