Southern Green Line Station Area Plan

The Approved Southern Green Line Station Area Plan (February 25, 2014) is currently unpublished. Until published, the approved plan consists of three documents: the 2014 Southern Green Line Station Area Preliminary Sector Plan and Proposed Sectional Map Amendment, the Planning Board amendments in Prince George's County Planning Board Resolution Number 13-98 (PDF), and the District Council’s Resolution of Approval Numbers CR-9-2014 (PDF) and CR-10-2014 (PDF), and minor amendment CR-1-2016 (PDF).

Project Description


The plan aims to increase the county’s share of regional job growth; address income, jobs, and transportation inequities; increase quality, affordable housing through mixed-income projects; enhance connectivity to and between Metro stations; increase transportation options and utilization of the Metrorail Green Line for reverse commute trips; and stabilize and preserve nearby communities.

The purpose of the DDOZ is to prohibit certain uses in the entire area and additional uses near the Metro stations, as well as establish development standards and requirements for properties within one-half mile of the following Metro stations. DDOZ development standards and requirements for street design, block standards, building height, and parking are included for the Branch Avenue and Naylor Road station areas.

Project Boundary


The project corridor surrounds four stations on the southern end of the Metro Green Line in Prince George’s County, Maryland, extending from Southern Avenue down Branch Avenue (MD 5) to the Capital Beltway (Interstate 495). The four stations within the plan area include:
  • Branch Avenue
  • Naylor Road
  • Southern Avenue
  • Suitland
