Prince George\’s County Council Supports Capital Trails Resolution 

During the session this Tuesday, the Prince George’s County Council, unanimously adopted Council Resolution CR-62-2021, legislation supporting the Capital Trails Coalition and the Capital Trails Network. The Capital Trails Network is a connected system of multi-use trails located in the jurisdictions that comprise the Metropolitan Washington region. CR-062-2021 requests the County Executive and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, as well as the State of Maryland and the Federal Government, assist in prioritizing Prince George’s County Capital Trails Network projects for funding.  

The legislation also endorses the completion of 40 priority projects of the Capital Trails Coalition Network by 2025.

Once completed, the Capital Trails Coalition estimates nearly 4 million people, including more than 500,000 working-age adults in Prince George’s County, will live within a 2-mile walk or ride of the network, giving them access to jobs, businesses, transit, and recreational opportunities, while also reducing the region’s greenhouse gas emissions by bolstering its sustainable transportation network.
