Welcoming & Diverse Communities

One of our greatest assets are our diverse communities which range from rural communities, such as Baden, Croom, and the Town of Eagle Harbor to historic areas, such as 

  • Bradbury Heights 
  • Broad Creek
  • Fairmount Heights
  • Glenarden
  • Greenbelt
  • Mount Rainier
  • Riverdale Park

Our communities also include suburban subdivisions and master planned communities including: 

  • Beechtree
  • Beltsville 
  • Calverton 
  • Fairwood
  • Landover Hills
  • Lanham
  • Marlton
  • Waterfront developments (such as National Harbor)

While the U.S. 1 (Baltimore Avenue) corridor and University Town Center have been successful in accommodating more urban lifestyles, Prince George’s County has historically been more effective in meeting the needs and housing preferences of families and those seeking a suburban lifestyle. As is discussed throughout Plan 2035, it is vital that Prince George’s County continue to support its established communities while proactively working to diversify its housing options. By promoting new vibrant, mixed-income and mixed-use, transit-oriented communities and opportunities for residents to age in place, the County will help ensure it retains its upcoming workforce-its recent college graduates-and responds to the needs of its changing demographics, namely its growing senior population.
