  • Conceptual Site Plan (completed 2015);

In 2006, the overall Melford property was rezoned from E-I-A (Employment and Institutional Area) to M-X-T, via the Bowie and Vicinity Master Plan and Sectional Map Amendment (SMA).  

 

On April 21, 2014 the Bowie City Council voted to approve the Conceptual Site Plan for the Melford Village, with eight conditions, but determined that the residential component should be revised to include 1,000 senior multi-family units (which may include assisted living facility units), 1,000 non-senior multi-family units and 500 townhouse units.  On March 23, 2015 the Prince George’s County Council, sitting as the District Council, approved #CSP-06002-01, with 25 conditions.
