About Us

Our History

SCEDA provides community-based leadership and planning for economic growth and development in Prince George's County, with a focus on the southern part of the county.

We are a major stakeholder and an organization of record on issues having an economic impact on the quality of life of our community.

Solified the position as a voice for business development, retention, and expansion, the County Master Plan, zoning, transportation, education, public safety, and legislation. Our objective is to promote economic empowerment for the citizens of Prince George's County.

SCEDA focussed on areas of business development, education, public safety, transportation and community support. The organization supports academic excellence in the schools, full summer youth employment, safe streets, adequate transportation facilities (including metro rail service across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge), transit oriented commercial development, and high end restaurants and shopping centers such as the Tanger Outlets.

SCEDA has adopted three schools, supported the community work of The Charity Carrousel to feed hungry families in our community and supported efforts to attract more international trade and commerce to Prince George's County.

SCEDA continues to lobby government at all levels to adopt policies and procedures that support smart economic growth.
