This week, Prince George’s County will hear from residents about whether it should ban new townhouses for the next two years. We think this is a bad idea, and we’re not alone. Here’s how you can get involved.
The County Council is looking at three bills, all related to townhouses. One bill, CB-52-2023, would block approvals for new townhouse developments except in a handful of areas. Two other bills, CB-50-2023 and CB-53-2023, are meant to block proposals to build townhouses in specific locations. Council Vice Chair Wala Blegay, who’s cosponsoring the three bills with Council Chair Tom Dernoga, says the three bills will prevent suburban sprawl and encourage development near the Blue Line instead.
