Maryland builders raise concerns about townhome development pause in Prince George’s Co.
PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, Md. (DC News Now) — The Maryland Building Industry Association is speaking out about a proposal to pause townhome construction in Prince George’s County for two years.
County council members said there are just too many townhomes being built in certain parts of the county, and it’s straining infrastructure. They’re hoping a two-year pause will slow that down and encourage builders to build in more high-density areas of the county.
“To bring true economic development to the county will be building in transit-oriented areas because that’s where you’re going to bring the jobs, that’s where the office shots are gonna come, that’s when that’s where the employers want to be,” Councilmember Wala Blegay said in an interview last month.
