! PLEAsE NOTE Due to the necessity of replacing the aquatics center’s filtration system, all aquatics classes scheduled to begin in November through the end of January, have been cancelled at Fairland Sports and Aquatics Complex. Since the Winter Guide was at the printer, it was too late to remove these courses from the Winter Guide. The aquatics team and maintenance unit are working to resolve the problem. Some aquatics courses are being transferred to RollingcrestChillum Splash Pool . Please call staff at Fairland, 301-362-6060, TTY 301-362-6090. Gymnastics, fitness and tennis courses are not affected by the pools closure. The rest of the complex remains open for business. We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing to our very loyal customers.

Resident Registration and Fees The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission policy gives priority to Prince George’s County residents during program and class enrollment; it also increases registration fees by approximately 20 percent for non-residents, or those living outside Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties. This procedure ensures that the citizens who fund these programs through their tax dollars have the first option to enroll. After the priority registration period, registrations are accepted from residents of all jurisdictions. The fee schedule applies to all Commission programs and facilities in Prince George’s County, with a few exceptions such as performance tickets and historic site admission fees. *NOTE: Full payment is due at registration unless a class or program has a scheduled payment structure i.e. Kids’ Care, Trips & Excursions. Need help? E-mail the Park and Planning Help Desk at help4smartlink@pgparks.com

Registering Your Association to Receive Notices of New Development Applications Applicants for new development are required to send informational mailings for cases to be heard by the Planning Board. These notices are sent to adjoining property owners, municipalities within a mile of the proposal, previous persons of record, and associations registered with the Planning Department. The applicant must send these mailings at least 30 days prior to filing an application. The notices must contain a variety of information about the application, including the telephone number to call for additional information, a statement to recipients that the applicant will meet to explain the application; an applicant telephone number for persons wishing to meet; and an explanation of how to become a person of record in the case. A municipality, civic association, or other person entitled to an informational mailing can request a copy of the site plan from the applicant. For information on registering your association, call 301-952-5401 or visit www.pgplanning.org/Register-Association.htm

FAQS–FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: PLANNING, ZONING, AND DEVELOPMENT Q: As a county resident, how can I participate in the planning process to ensure the protection of my home and community? A: It is important to become involved early on in the process of preparing master plans, sector plans, and sectional map amendments. This is the stage where many of the decisions are made about how development occurs and what can or cannot be done on a piece of property. A planner assigned to your area can help you with information. Call the Community Planning Division at 301-952-4225. You may also register to become a party of record to ensure that you receive information on a particular pending development application. Visit us at www.pgplanning.org or call 301-952-3530. Q: I noticed a sign, posted on property, that advertised a hearing. What is this about? A: Try to note the application number and general location of the sign. Then call 301-699-CALL to obtain information. Q: What is a site plan, and why do I need to submit a site plan with my permit application? A: The County Zoning Ordinance requires that each application for a building or use and occupancy permit be accompanied by a site plan. The site plan is a graphic illustration of the site and all buildings, improvements, parking, landscaping, etc. This allows reviewers to accurately determine what your plans are and whether they conform with zoning regulations. Q: How do I find out the zoning classification of my property? A: Contact or visit the Planning Information Services office on the lower level of the County Administration Building, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro, Maryland 20772, telephone number 301-952-3208. You can also perform some research on your own by logging on to our mapping website at www.pgatlas.com. The zoning classification determines uses permitted on a piece of property. Q: I own a piece of property. How can I determine if I can build on it? A: The property must meet certain size and other requirements. Property zoning establishes these requirements, as well as the types of structures and property uses permitted. There may also be other factors to consider such as environmental and roadway requirements. If you have questions, call the Planning Information Services office at 301-952-3208.
