Mission Statement

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) has endeavored to improve the quality of life for all of the citizens of the bi-county area it serves and of the communities in which these citizens live, work and raise their families. This mission is embodied in three major program areas which respond to the vision of our founders and are incorporated into our charter. M-NCPPC's mission is to: Manage physical growth and plan communities. Protect and steward natural, cultural and historic resources. Provide leisure and recreational experiences.

Description

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) is a bi-county agency empowered by the State of Maryland in 1927 to acquire, develop, maintain and administer a regional system of parks within Montgomery and Prince George's counties, and to provide land use planning for the physical development of these counties. In addition, the agency gained responsibility for the public recreation program in Prince George's County in 1970. The governing body of M-NCPPC consists of 10 members, 5 appointed by Montgomery County and 5 by Prince George's County. The Commission coordinates and acts on matters of interest to both counties. The members of the Commission from each county also serve as separate Planning Boards. M-NCPPC administers a park system of more than 52,000 acres. Its staff of career employees includes planners, park and recreation administrators, park police and administration staff. In addition, seasonal workers staff numerous park and recreation programs.
