The Greenbelt News Review recently (2/22) reported that the Bureau of Printing and Engraving met with the Greenbelt City Council to inform them that the agency was looking to move its printing operation out of the District. This operation takes place in an annex building that was built in 1938 and is now obsolete. While a decision was to made in 2019, the Bureau's current preferred location was to a 100-acre site in the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. The proposed site is north of Powder Mill Road, about one mile east of Edmondston Road. The proposed move would involve about 800 of the bureau's 1200 employees. The remainder of the employees would continue to work in the district.

BARC supports the move as currently only about one-half of its 500 buildings are being used and it budget is not sufficient to maintain its large property holdings.

The draft EIS for this project was issued in the fall. BARC location is still the preferred site for a 2-acre sized building about 40 feet tall. It would employ up to 1,600 workers working 3 shifts a day. Construction could begin by late 2022 and the facility could open in 2025.

That is great news. I'm sure College Park businesses would get a shot in the arm when classes end for the summer break

Also, with the Trump admin out, I wonder what this does for the FBI relocation effort? MD still has some pretty senior congressmen in office. Would like to see that taken off the shelf and revisited.
