County Executive Baker Delivers His
State of the Economy Address

County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, delivered his annual "State of the Economy" address to 300+ attendees at a networking breakfast hosted by the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation, in partnership with the Greater Prince George's Business Roundtable, at Colony South Inn and Conference Center on Thursday, April 16. 


"For the past 4 years the mantra of this Administration has been change and together we have made great strides to move us closer to our destiny," said County Executive Baker.


County Executive Baker addressed the unprecedented growth in Prince George's County with six major projects in the pipeline, including MGM National Harbor and the $650 million Regional Medical Center. He also highlighted the wins for the County (the county's first Whole Foods and Dave & Buster's, Harris Teeter), expanding business in the county (Bozzuto, Thompson Creek Windows) and the Department of Housing and Community Development, the FIRST state agency in Prince George's County and that will jumpstart development in New Carrollton.


Thompson Creek Windows Breaks Ground
New 117,000 square foot facility will house manufacturing &
warehousing operations


On Monday, April 20, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and other elected officials joined the Thompson Creek team at the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a new 117,000 square foot building housing the manufacturing and warehouse operations of Thompson Creek Window Company at 8300 Pennsylvania Avenue in Upper Marlboro.


The $20 million project is being undertaken by Chesapeake Real Estate Group, on the site of the existing Murry's Steaks facility adjacent to Exit 4 of the Capital Beltway. 


"Thompson Creek's commitment to expand its operations and remain in Prince George's County adds to Prince George's success as a significant employment center. The fact that Thompson Creek Window Company chose to expand and remain in Prince George's County further demonstrates the county's ability to meet the needs of growing manufacturing businesses," said County Executive Baker. 


Got Potholes?

Thanks to a two-year pilot program with Fort Washington-based Pavement Corporation, a new, high-technology infrared asphalt repair process will be in place that is cheaper, more effective and environmentally friendly to fix potholes in Prince George's County year-round. The new process was validated for quality assurance through a year-long study at the University of Maryland by Charles Schwartz, chair and professor of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. 

"Prince George's county is now on the cutting edge of technology for fixing its roads thanks to this pilot program," said Jay Perry, founder and President of Pavement Corporation. "In addition, we expect to add 5-10 jobs in the short-term and 20-30 more with our expansion projections."


"Potholes are a quality of life issue, especially for people in Prince George's County," said Derrick Davis, vice chair of the County Council. "We are excited and proud of this program between Prince George's County and Pavement Corporation, as it employs the latest technologies to save our taxpayers millions of dollars in car repairs through faster, longer-lasting pothole patches performed year-round."


 College Park Economic Development Report

College Park published its annual economic development report, which reviewed an exciting year for the city that saw progress on over $500 million in development activity. The report looks at trends in the housing, office, and retail markets, while detailing various City initiatives shaping the community. A copy of the report is available here.
