Conifer Village PerspectivesAn apartment complex, Conifer Village, is coming to District 7, Capitol Heights. Conifer Realty, LLC of Columbia, MD has had their plan approved for Conifer Village to be located where the old Lustine building at the intersection of Brooks Drive and Ridley Street. Conifer Village *sidebar* I hate when multi-family units or apartment dwellings are named “village.” By definition, the word works but the visualization for me is a bunch of people living in grass huts near dirt roads. *end sidebar* will be 120 multifamily housing units in a single building.  The plan from Conifer Realty has been approved with conditions by the  Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission.

Suitland Parkway
Suitland Parkway

A plan to raise Suitland Parkway ab0ve Pennsylvania Avenue is in its preliminary stages, NBC4 reported.  “A plan to lower Pennsylvania Avenue (MD4) and raise Suitland Parkway to run over Pennsylvania is being discussed by the Maryland State Highway Administration and the National Park Service. The intersection is a major crossroads for commuters in Prince George’s County. The plan, which is still in early stages, could make traffic move more efficiently. “We’re separating the two roads so you wouldn’t have the ability if you’re traveling on one to have a crash with another car on the other one,” said Valerie Burnette Edgar of the State Highway Administration said. “You’d be completely separated by bridges.”
 The $120 million project is already funded, Prince George’s County Bureau Chief Tracee Wilkins reported. The State Highway Administration, which oversees Pennsylvania Avenue (MD4), must acquire land from the National Park Service, which operates Suitland Parkway, before the project can begin. “Once this project, assuming it goes forward and gets built, the State Highway Administration would take over the section of road that is currently theirs and continue to maintain it,” Edgar said. The National Park Service wants public comment on the idea. Review the plan at the National Park Service website or the State Highway Administration website.
