Dear Marketing Professionals

The Port Towns Community Development Corporation (PT CDC) is soliciting a “Port Towns Strategic Marketing Plan” proposal for the Port Towns of Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, Cottage City and Edmonston, Maryland.  These Towns share borders with Washington, DC to the south, Hyattsville/Riverdale, Maryland to the west, and Cheverly, Maryland to the north. The Anacostia River travels through each Towns and is the source of the Brand Name “Port Towns”.

The PT CDC, as a part of developing the Port Towns Community Legacy Plan for the State of Maryland, will produce a Strategic Marketing Plan for the Port Towns in order to assist the Towns and Port Towns’ Partners in attracting tourist, desirable businesses, new residents, and new partners to the area.  

The Port Towns’ is a “Wellness Opportunity Zone,” was the site of the Battle of Bladensburg during the National War of 1812, and has significant focus on environmental stewardship due to its proximity to the Anacostia River.

The Plan created by the awarded contractor will inform, organize, and direct the Towns and Port Towns’ Partners to take specific action towards promotion and marketing of the Port Towns to achieve the community’s goals stated above.
