Prince George’s Bill Introduced On Office Conversions
The Prince George’s County Council has returned from its August recess and is resuming action on legislation. Earlier this week Council Member Patterson introduced CB-74-2014, which would permit the renovation and conversion of an office building from commercial use to residential use in the C-S-C Zone under certain circumstances. To qualify for a conversion under the bill a property would have to meet all of the following standards: (1) have a minimum land area of 5 acres; (2) be adjacent to a freeway; (3) be within a Local Center designated in an applicable General Plan; (4) be within a designated Revitalization Tax Credit Area; and (5) be within a Priority Funding Area. The bill has been referred to the Committee on Planning, Zoning and Economic Development.
