Are you aware of the proposed high-speed MAGLEV project that could be built through Prince George’s County?

Mayor Craig A. Moe, President Michael Leszcz and the Laurel City Council have been following this and they are asking for your input!

Mayor Moe recently wrote a letter to Governor Hogan, opposing this project; one reason being it “will cut through Prince George's County, taking people's homes and land while seriously damaging our environment, but providing no benefit to the greater Laurel area or Prince George's County,” and many more reasons that can be found at /comm/press-releases/12257-mayor-craig-moe-sends-letter-governor-opposing-maglev-project.

The Mayor and City Council Meeting, originally scheduled for January 8th, will be held tonight Wednesday, January 10th, at 7:00pm and will introduce and hold its first public hearing on Resolution No. 2-18, a resolution of the Mayor and City Council of Laurel opposing the High-speed Superconducting Magnetic Levitation (SMAGLEV) System between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland.

Attend tonight’s meeting and let Mayor Moe and the Laurel City Council know your thoughts on this proposed project! Or call the Mayor’s Office at 301-725-5300 ext. 2125 or email Mayor Moe at [email protected].

An informed community is a community the works together for the benefit of its residents!
