What happens to Subtitle 27A if a new Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations is adopted?

Subtitle 27A, also known as Urban Centers and Corridor Nodes Development Code of Prince George’s County, is part of the Prince George’s County’s Zoning Ordinance (Subtitle 27) by extension. Subtitle 27A was an attempt to establish streamlined and clear development review and approval procedures and design regulations to control and ensure future transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use development at designated Centers and Corridor Nodes (locations established by the 2002 General Plan or some master and sector plans). Our expectation is that the new Zoning Ordinance will incorporate elements similar to those contained within Subtitle 27A to address the more urban forms of development desired by the county. Successful enactment of a new Zoning Ordinance will eliminate the need for Subtitle 27A, and it will no longer be in effect.
