The Prince George's County District Council on Monday voted in favor of taking another step toward a mixed-use development in Riverdale Park that includes a Whole Foods grocery store.
The 7-2 decision to prepare a document supporting rezoning the property that the council will vote on later comes after months of legislative hurdles, including days-long public hearings to debate the pros and cons of the project, which boasts the upscale grocer as an anchor store.
Wearing a bright green T-shirt under her suit coat, Jane Cafritz, one of the developers and owners of the property where the 37-acre project is proposed, called the project a “logical, progressive step for this county.”
“This project is a catalyst for developing a very current transportation system that meets the needs of this community,” she said.
