Created in 1927, the Maryland-National Capital
Park and Planning Commission has jurisdiction
over parks and planning in Montgomery and Prince
George's counties (Chapter 448, Acts of 1927).
This authority covers all of the two counties except
for certain incorporated municipalities.
The Commission is composed of ten members.
Five are residents of Montgomery County and five
are from Prince George's. The five members from
each county make up the county's planning board.
Within the Maryland-W»shington Metropolitan
District, the Commission is empowered to acquire,
develop, maintain, and operate parks systems, the
expense of which, including debt service, is paid
from a separate park tax levied within the District.
In Prince George's County only, the Commission
operates the public recreation program, funded by
a separate county-wide recreation tax.
Taking into account all factors of urban, subur-
ban, rural, and regional planning, the Commission
is empowered to make, adopt, and amend a General
Plan for the physical development of the Maryland-
Washington Regional District. The Planning
Boards make zoning recommendations to their
respective County Councils, sirring as District
Councils, for the portion of the District within their
county to enact die zoning ordinances and change
the zoning map. The Planning Boards have ex-
clusive responsibility for subdivision approval, loca-
tion and grades of streets, location of public
buildings and utilities, and street naming and house
numbering. Administration and planning expenses
of the Commission are paid from an administrative
tax levied within the District.
Commission members serve four-year terms. In
Montgomery County three members are appointed
by the County Council and confirmed by the Coun-
ty Executive, and two members are appointed by
the County Executive and confirmed by the County
Council. In Prince George's County the County
Executive appoints all five members subject to
County Council confirmation. No more than three
members from each county's planning board may
