Maryland Planning Commissioners Association

Serving the citizen planner since 1983

The Maryland Planning Commissioners Association (MPCA) is a statewide, nonprofit educational organization of municipal, county and regional planning commissioners and boards of zoning appeals members. MPCA members work to improve the quality of life for all Marylanders through planning, environmental protection, historic preservation, and growth management

MPCA promotes better planning and plan implementation by:

  • Fostering communication and sharing information to improve planning practices and procedures;
  • Promoting public interest in municipal, county, regional, and state planning issues;
  • Encouraging increased planning coordination and cooperation within Maryland; and
  • Providing regional and statewide workshops on planning and zoning issues of mutual interest and concern.

Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Baltimore, the MPCA is dedicated to the continuing education and professionalism of those who serve as members of planning commissions, planning boards and boards of appeals. Many of those are citizen planners who serve as volunteers. All members of a planning commission or board and/or board of appeals in Maryland counties and municipalities (incorporated cities, towns and villages) that exercise planning authority are members of the MPCA.

The 35th Maryland Planning Commissioners Association Annual Conference is coming this fall
