New Carrollton already has many of the ingredients for success. These include access to public transit, a large workforce, and high levels of multimodal traffic. The County wishes take advantage of these assets. Thus, it has designated New Carrollton as a Downtown. The Placemaking Section helps implement this goal.
The Section aims to improve New Carrollton by working with our partners to:
Enable a mix of uses, encompassing residences, recreation, and professional services;
Improve connections and pedestrian infrastructure to enable car-free access to New Carrollton;
Augment work done to support workers already at New Carrollton;
Enhance a sense of "place" at New Carrollton; and
Support community efforts by area residents.
Currently, this work supports other, ongoing work at New Carrollton. This includes:
