Planning issues

On February 6, 2007, the Prince George's County Council approved the Westphalia Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment.[3] This document established a planning concept for the Westphalia area and rezoned specified properties.[4] This concept is envisions a "high-density, transit- and pedestrian-oriented urban town center" surrounded by three village centers and multiple residential modules. Buildout is proposed to include 14,000 - 15,300 new residential units, 4.5 million square feet of commercial space, and 750,000 square feet of retail space. A 150-acre Central Park is proposed immediately north of the Town Center, approximately at the center of the Westphalia area.[4]
