The Redevelopment Authority develops, redevelops, revitalizes and preserves targeted communities with an emphasis on communities within the Beltway in support of the County Executive’s priorities of community development, transit-oriented development, and affordable housing. Mission
The mission of the Redevelopment Authority is to be the County’s principle development/redevelopment entity with a specific focus on the development of mixed income, mixed use and mixed tenure in targeted communities, and the development and preservation of workforce/ affordable housing near transit centers.
The agency's primary objective is to decrease the number of blighted commercial and residential structures within a 1/2 mile radius of existing transit centers and improve the quality of life for the residents of Prince George's County.
The strategies to accomplish this objective include:
Acquisition of vacant and underutilized commercial and residential properties for development in targeted areas;
Ensuring that financing is secured for all projects;
Obtaining required approvals for all development plans;
Partnering with non-profit and for-profit entities.
By facilitating catalytic economic development and expanding the County's tax base, the Redevelopment Authority partners with non-profit, for-profit, and other governmental entities in its efforts to preserve and stabilize the County's neighborhoods.
Executive’s Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative
The Redevelopment Authority also provides support to the County Executive’s Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative through its redevelopment and revitalization efforts as a means of spurring economic and community development.
