Prince George’s Bill Introduced On Office Conversions

Headlines ,

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.
