The Bowie City Council is seeking volunteers to fill four vacancies on the city's community recreation and education system study committees.
The recreation committee advises the council on all recreation matters, and is the liaison between the city and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
It also proposes a master plan for recreation and open space.
The educational system study committee compiles information on educational matters concerning Bowie students. The 10-member committee meets monthly and includes one student member and two associate members designated by parent-teacher associations.
Applicants must be registered to vote in Bowie and should submit resumes to the city clerk, 2614 Kenhill Dr., Bowie 20715.
In other action, the Bowie council introduced a resolution earlier this week to annex a 155-acre, undeveloped plot next to the city at the corner of Highbridge Road and Rte. 450.
The land is owned by the Carrollton Corp., which recently received zoning approval from Prince George's County for development on the land. Bowie city planner James Cronk said the corporation has the option to build up to 60,000 square feet of commercial facilities, 89 family detached houses and 286 town houses on the plot.
Cronk said Carrollton Corp. asked the city to annex the land so that residents who move to the proposed development would benefit from city services. He said the city may vote on the annexation next month.
