During his tenure working on local community development and revitalization Stuart has managed many non-profit and governmental fundraising endeavors, initiated development projects, and the construction of community facilities. Stuart has played a key role in the creation of new commercial and residential space, and public art projects in Hyattsville and across nine municipalities. He has led or assisted in many legislative and administrative efforts to aid in the realization of community-based revitalization goals: including the statewide authorization to create Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in Maryland; enabling the universal use of Resident Artist tax credits in Arts Districts all across the State; and spearheading the team that authored the Prince George’s County Gateway Arts & Entertainment District Recertification.
Stuart’s previous career as a cabinet maker and project manager, along with his long-time avid community and environmental activism, prepared him well for his current mission: making Hyattsville CDC a leading nonprofit community services provider transforming the Route One Corridor and the Inner Beltway region of Prince George’s County: facilitating the economic renaissance of the area and leading to a sustainable, fortified local tax base.
