Abstract This study concerns revitalization of an older community in southern Prince George's County, located between rapidly developing areas adjacent to MD 5/US 301, and the county's designated Rural Tier. The Brandywine Revitalization and Preservation study area straddles both the Subregion 5 and Subregion 6 master plans, approved in 2009, and responds to recommendations in those plans that a planning study focus on revitalization in this community. While this older Brandywine community has attributes of a small town and a cluster of historic resources, it lacks other characteristics that would distinguish it as such. The threat is that without a definition of the desired community character and strategies for achieving it, new development, when it arrives in old Brandywine, will subsume it into the suburban fabric of the greater community. The strategies and illustrations in this study are intended to be used as an action plan for community stakeholders to improve the look and function of the public realm, focusing on improving the Brandywine Road streetscape,pedestrian circulation and safety.
