Mission Statement

The City of Bowie, in partnership with the community, provides a cost-effective system of City services and facilitates compatible economic development that enhances Bowie’s quality of life within a positive and sustaining physical environment.

Description

The City of Bowie is approximately 19 square miles in size and located halfway between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. Bowie was incorporated as a town in 1916. Historically, the area is associated with thoroughbred horse breeding and railroading. The community of Huntington, the original Bowie, traces it roots to 1870, when the lands were subdivided by land developers into more than 500 residential building lots, to create a large town site at a major junction of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad. In 1958, the firm of Levitt and Sons acquired the Belair Estate and two years later the town of Bowie chose to annex the Levitt properties. Today the City is the largest municipality in Prince George’s County with a population of approximately 58,682 (American Community Survey 2019 estimate).
