Changing Maryland for the Better

Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) provides guidance, analysis, outreach and support to ensure that all of the state’s natural resources, built environment and public assets are preserved and protected to achieve its goals for economic, community and environmental vitality.

Planning sees Maryland cities, towns and communities as attractive, vibrant places to live, work, play and learn. They grow in ways that add value to the landscape and provide opportunity to new enterprises. Our natural, cultural and historic resources are catalysts that strengthen and renew economic and community development. Planning’s actions will change Maryland for the better.

Local government - with its residents - invests time and resources in creating a vision for how they want their communities to look in the future. They are in the best position to achieve these local aspirations through comprehensive plans, ordinances and local planning.

Planning stands ready to assist bringing our full portfolio of professional staff, data resources and programmatic assistance.​
