Appellate Court of Maryland Issued a Reported Opinion in Favor of JGL Client

The Appellate Court of Maryland issued a reported opinion December 20, 2023, in favor of JGL’s client, the developer of the Suffrage Point development in Hyattsville. The Appellate Court determined that the Prince George’s Planning Board had not erred in approving our client’s Preliminary Plan of Subdivision for the development. Senior Counsel Alyse Prawde briefed and argued this case.

The case concerned important issues about the procedure for developers moving through the zoning and subdivision process. The Appellate Court of Maryland found that the pending appeal of the Conceptual Site Plan did not prohibit the Planning Board from approving our client’s Preliminary Plan of Subdivision. The court also determined that there was no requirement in the County’s Zoning Ordinance requiring a preliminary plan of subdivision to conform with a conceptual site plan.
