M-NCPPC Alternative APFO Requirements

The Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission of Prince George’s County engaged KAI to establish new approaches to adequate public facilities regulations (APFR), and cross-jurisdictional land-use planning and development to meet County goals that focus development in walkable, transit-oriented centers. Key aspects of the work included efforts to:

  • engage state agencies to support cross-jurisdictional coordination of plans and development impacting major corridors
  • introduce multimodal systems-based rather than auto-oriented point-based transportation improvements in General Development Plan Centers and Corridors
  • analyze current policies and practices on the realization of TOD-focused development goals.

The work represents a groundbreaking approach within the state to introduce system-based developer contributions founded in regional model analysis and transit center-oriented sector planning. The draft report and recommendations are being reviewed by partner agencies and will be presented to the County Council for action in the near future.
