Help the environment and the economy! Tell Prince George’s County –the new medical center should be Metro-accessible for everyone

    1. Sponsored by

      Coalition for Smarter Growth

Prince George’s County is about to make a decision on where to put a new state-of-the-art Regional Medical Center. 

Building a new regional medical center with convenient access to Metro means less traffic, less global warming air pollution from cars, and more convenient access to quality healthcare for everyone, including individuals who must rely exclusively on transit. 

Most importantly, putting a new hospital near transit can jumpstart other quality development, meaning a big economic boost for Prince George’s and potentially thousands of new jobs for county residents.

Please let County Executive Rushern Baker know that you want a convenient, environmentally-friendly regional medical center that will help to invigorate existing neighborhoods, improve our economy, and not worsen the sprawl that drains our finances every day. Sign the Coalition for Smarter Growth’s petition!

      This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.

      This is to help with the economic downturn. I have a petition below that’s for the economy and ridiculous gas prices and other things affecting us. Let’s sign mine. I need 1,000,000 signatures in total.

      We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.

      We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.

      There’s also a petition on sign on. Here’s that link below as it’s for the reshaping the world to improve our lives.

      I worked all the 32 years in public service to Prince Georges' County to get the best access, high quality health care for all our citizens. This site near the Metro stop would be the best possible to fulfill all those goals. It would also be environmentally sensitive to allow for less traffic congestion and cut down on the need for more parking spaces.

      This seems to be the most LOGICAL way of doing this.

      This is very important to me because we need to have the hospital centrally located, near a Metro and the community college, to generate jobs, business, and economic activity within the region.

      It is very important that transportation avalability be provided to really make a positive impact on this community needed project. So many elderly , disable and poor people can only receive medical care if they can be provided with the nessessary public transportatoion. If not a subway please make sure that a bus line schedual is provided (night and day). Thank You
