Feds move forward on project in Prince George’s
The Obama administration is advancing a proposal to place a large office complex for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in Prince George’s County, a development that would bring more than 3,000 jobs to the region. Though the decision is not final, the General Services Administration informed property owners that it will begin an environmental assessment of a site in Camp Springs. That review process will take six to nine months. Maryland leaders have been working separately for years to land a new headquarters for the FBI in the county. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services — which processes immigration visa requests and naturalization and asylum applications, among other responsibilities — would bring about 3,200 jobs.
