(Refreshments at 6:00 pm)

Location:

Computer Sciences Corporation
7900 Harkins Road, Lanham, MD (New Carrollton Metro station)

Speakers:

  • Stewart Schwartz,  Executive Director, Coalition for Smarter Growth
  • Shyam Kannan, Managing Director of Planning, WMATA
  • Chuck Boyd, Deputy Director of Planning Services for the Maryland Department of Planning
With opening remarks by County Council Member Mel Franklin.

Learn from Schwartz about how he’s worked every angle to make TOD in our region a success for the more than a decade. He’ll share with us his “Ten Things to Get Right” list for TOD. Kannan will address how Metro and the county can work to take advantage of WMATA property and adjacent sites to attract investment and build quality places.

Boyd brings a wealth of experience and knowledge about best practices in planning and development review processes. He will bring a practitioner's view to planning and development review processes and plans that balance public and private interests and create a winning outcome for communities working to achieve quality TOD. 

This event is co-sponsored with the Envision Prince George's Community Action Team for Transit-Oriented Development.
