The Approved New Carrollton Transit District Development Plan and Transit District Overlay Zone is available on-line.
The transit district development plan (TDDP)/transit district overlay zone (TDOZ) guides land use and development of all properties at or near the New Carrollton Metro station consistent with transit-oriented development (TOD) principles.
The plan also:
Enhances pedestrian and vehicular connectivity between properties north of the Metro station and those south of the station
Establishes community and developer expectations for market-based TOD development
Focuses county, state, and federal resources to stimulate TOD at the New Carrollton Metro Station
Identifies funding/financial gaps to address through public-private partnerships
Refines the 2004 planning study's recommended public infrastructure improvement program
Streamlines existing TDOZ and other regulations to respond to market realities
The New Carrollton TDOZ is located in Planning Area 69 (Bladensburg-New Carrollton and vicinity), immediately west of the Orange Line Metro/Amtrak/MARC rail alignment. The TDOZ contains approximately 71 acres surrounding the intersection of Harkins and Ellin Roads.
