Snowden Pond at Montpelier is a small community of colonial homes nestled in a rural zone of Prince George’s County, south of Laurel, Maryland. Its proximity to the Patuxent Wildlife Refuge and Beltsville Agriculture Research Center create the ambience of wooded country space, yet residents enjoy convenient access to three major metropolitan areas.

Plan Now. Start Bringing Your Reusable Bag When You Shop!

Better Bag Bill

Effective January 1, 2024, Prince George’s County prohibits all retail establishments from providing plastic carryout bags to shoppers and, with certain exceptions*, shall charge at least 10 cents for each paper carryout or reusable bag provided to a customer. To assist residents in making the transition, the County will provide a limited amount of free reusable bags and will announce distribution dates and locations once finalized.

 Bag It Right

Why the ban?

  • To protect the environment and marine life and reduce litter.
  • Plastic carryout bags are not recyclable at the County’s recycling facility and impose costs to county government and taxpayers in the form of removal of litter and repair and wear-and-tear on recycling machinery due to the improper disposal of plastic bags in recycling bins.
  • Single-use plastic bags are made from fossil fuels, and their production results in harmful greenhouse gas emissions at every stage of their life cycle, from extraction to production to disposal, contributing to climate change.


Consider donating to the Salvation Army

Each year, people from across the community stream through the doors of The Salvation Army Prince George’s County Corps in need of help. Committed to the task of Doing the Most Good, officers, staff, and volunteers work to catch people as they fall and help them back on their feet again.

Case Managers work with parents to wrap services around their needs, from assistance with rent and utility bills to donations of grocery vouchers that put food on the table. Helping the young to grow holds a special place in the Corps’ heart. Music lessons taught by skilled instructors, character-building programs, and Bible study is available each week.

Supporting veterans is a top priority at the Prince George’s County Corps. Thanks to a bequest from a generous supporter there are extra funds available to meet the emergency needs of local veterans that live throughout the county.
