Prince George’s Weighs Options For Land Development In Bowie

BOWIE, Md. (AP) — A board weighing the fate of 200 acres of property near Bowie State University is expected to make a
recommendation next year about what to do with the land.

Among the options for the county-owned land are a mixed-use development and a training facility for the Washington Redskins.

The Washington Post reports that the board, which was created in February, is expected to make a recommendation next year to the Prince George’s County council.

The land is located near the university and the Bowie MARC train station.

County Executive Rushern Baker III has asked the Maryland Stadium Authority to study the economic impact of moving the Redskins’ training center and team headquarters, currently located in Virginia, to the Bowie site.
