Meeting To Be Held In Prince George’s County To Discuss Potential Sites Reserved For The Federal Bureau Of Investigation Bureau

Prince George’s County officials had chosen two sites, one in Greenbelt and the other in Landover, for the new consolidated Federal Bureau of Investigation Headquarters. The United States General Services Administration (GSA) announced this week two meetings to discuss the transportation impact with the County residents.

The two potential sites in Prince George’s County are competing with a third site, which is located in Springfield, Virginia. Three teams of developers are competing to earn the winning bid to build the project. Final bids must be submitted by January 6, 2017, but the GSA is expected to announce the final decision on the FBI headquarters relocation in March 2017.

The State of Maryland and Prince George’s County have committed significant public funds to support the project. If either of the Greenbelt or Landover sites are chosen, 11,000 jobs will be brought to the County, along with a $2.5 billion, two million SF facility.

“I encourage any Prince Georgians interested in learning more about the new consolidated FBI Headquarters project and overall process to attend these meetings,” said Prince George’s County Executive Baker. “This is anticipated to be a $2.5 billion project that will create 11,000 jobs at one of the three locations.  We are confident and optimistic that with two of the three final sites at Greenbelt and Landover, we have superior locations and infrastructure, as well as the best deal for the U.S. taxpayers.”

Residents are encouraged to attend one of the scheduled meetings, so they can provide input and ask questions.
