Abstract The Approved Branch Avenue Corridor Sector Plan and Sectional Map Amendment comprises text, maps, illustrations, and pictures. The sector plan amends portions of the 2000 Approved Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment for the Heights and Vicinity (Planning Area 76A) and the 2002 Prince George's County Approved General Plan. Developed with broad public participation, this document presents background information, the vision for the area, and a discussion of the five elements that frame the vision-Land Use and Economic Development, Design and Appearance, Infrastructure to Support the Plan, Quality of Life, and Community Involvement. The plan recommends the designation of the Naylor Road Metro Station as a Regional Center with a mixeduse, high-density residential/office/retail land use classification, and the Iverson-Marlow Heights Mixed-Use Center as a node on the Branch Avenue Corridor with a mixed-use, medium-density residential/office/ retail land use classification. The plan contains policies and strategies for land use, economic development, urban design, parks and recreation, transportation systems (including roadways, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and trail facilities), revitalization, public safety, and community involvement. The overall objective of these policies and strategies is to revitalize and redevelop the sector plan area, thereby improving its visual appeal and providing pedestrian- and transit-oriented, mixed-use development that will create a positive sense of place and attract new residents, quality retail, and jobs while preserving and strengthening the existing residential neighborhoods. The sectional map amendment (SMA) contains zoning changes to allow implementation of the plan vision and the land use concepts in the sector plan.
