Public Forum on “Mansionization” today

A public forum will be held today to discuss “mansionization” issues in Prince George’s County (sorry about the late notice, we just learned about this). The forum will be held at

7 pm in the Prince George’s County Parks and Recreation Administration Building, located at 6600 Kenilworth Avenue in Riverdale

Mansionization is the phenomenon characterized by the construction of unusually large homes replacing smaller homes in an existing neighborhood or homes that are incompatible with the character of an existing neighborhood.

Today’s meeting is the first in a series of meetings to discuss the Prince George’s County Planning Department’s ongoing Mansionization Study, how this practice is impacting communities locally and regionally, and how these issues need to be addressed. The general public is invited to share their thoughts and concerns.

Contribution to the forum can be made without attending by completing and electronically submitting a survey to the Planning Board. The survey can also be printed, filled, and taken in person to the meeting.
