of some schools. It is therefore very important for residents to

District 3 schools will be presented in the Spring.
Go to http://www1.pgcps.org/pasb/forms.aspx?ekfrm=75296 to

Help Plan Future
Parks and Recreation Facilities
Here’s your chance to let others know what kind of
community centers, recreation programs, parks, trails and ball fields
you want in your community. Prince George’s County wants to hear from
you as it develops a plan for future parks and recreation projects and
open space acquisitions from the year 2010 to 40 years in the future.
The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission
(M-NCPPC) is asking county residents to fill out a survey by mail or
online during January. The written survey takes about 15 minutes to
fill out, or you may answer the questions online at the site . Questions ask about your family's parks and
recreation interests, even if you do not currently use Park and
Planning facilities and programs. All answers will be kept
confidential, and will be part of the comprehensive parks and
recreation needs assessment study for Prince George’s County.
To encourage your participation, everyone who responds
will be entered in a drawing for the chance to win one of ten $100
Giant Food gift cards. To enter the drawing, simply enter your first
name and daytime phone number or e-mail at the end of the
survey. For more information about the Parks
& Recreation: 2010 and Beyond project , contact
