The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission--Envision Prince George's.

Dear Prince George’s County Parent,

You may have heard about an initiative launched by The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission--Envision Prince George's. Its goal is to get people more involved in helping to create a great future for our county. Envision Prince George's is a call to action to develop and implement a vision for our county's future with a vibrant economy and a high quality of life for all. As parents of our youngest residents you and your family members should be involved and have your voices heard.

During the past several months, Envision has actively engaged more than 1,000 people in community forums and other activities throughout the county. In all of these programs we have been asking people what they like about life in Prince George's County, the challenges we need to overcome and what they want our county to be like in the future.

The Envision Prince George’s 21st Century Town Meeting will take place Saturday, March 20th at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex in Landover. We are expecting a historic event with more than 1,000 people gathering to give their views about the future of the county and to help plan some specific action steps to implement the visions being created.

This Town Meeting will be very different than any meeting you have ever attended. The size and diversity of the crowd will be quite unusual as well as the fact that this will be a highly participatory meeting. Like the Community Forums we had this past fall, the Town Meeting will feature the use of extensive table discussions and electronic keypad polling on lots of issues. Each table will also have a computer to use to record their views on the different issues that are discussed.

I hope you will plan on being a part of this important and unique experience so your voice can be included as we talk about what needs to be done to ensure a high quality of life in the future.
