Greater College Park P3: Greater Than Sum Of Its Parts

One could consider Maryland a breeding ground for public private partnerships, or P3s. County P3s abound from economic development projects and broadband deployment to stormwater management and green infrastructure investment.

Just look at what Prince George’s County, the City of College Park, the State of Maryland, University of Maryland, and private developers have underway in Greater College Park: over 30 projects and $2 billion in public and private investment, including a hotel, four new academic buildings, and a public-private research hub. By capitalizing on public investment in education and research and private sector innovation, the Discovery District has become greater than the sum of its parts.
