Elm Street Development has proposed a residential development on three parcels of land on Annapolis Road, that have been known locally as the Jesuit property. The area is currently outside the Bowie city limits. A zoning change is needed to allow for the proposed number and type of housing units.
Proposal: 400-500 single family homes and townhomes
Location: Both sides of MD 450 between Cornerstone Assembly of God Church and Public Works Road
Current Proposal Description: Rezone to the R-S (Residential Suburban) Zone (2-7 - 3.5 units per acre) to allow construction of 400 - 500 single-family detached and attached dwelling units

On October 11, 2017, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) officially accepted a rezoning application (Zoning Map Amendment A-10039) submitted by Bowie Whitemarsh Elm, LLC. However, the developer is not requesting the scheduling of any County hearings until they have met with the Bowie City Council to request water and sewer service for the project. A written request for an appearance before Council is expected to be received by Thanksgiving.
The project must have a plan or a commitment for water and sewer service before it can move forward. There are no defined timeframes in the County Zoning Ordinance requiring scheduling of a rezoning hearing.
