BY SUSIE CURRIE — In March, Hyattsville’s two Metro stations moved a little closer to redevelopment. On March 27, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) directors approved a plan to fast-track proposals to develop its parcels around four Metro stations, including West Hyattsville.

The Prince George’s Plaza Metro station area is likely to attract even more transit-oriented (read: high-density) development after the District Council voted to expand the Transit District Overlay Zone by nearly 30 percent. The new boundaries extend north to Rosemary Drive and west to Highview, and include 82 acres that had formerly been in five different zoning categories, from R-O-S (“very low density”) to R-18 (“medium density”).
