Planning Hosts A Better Maryland Strategies Survey!

Weigh in on strategies developed following the first round of public outreach meetings.

The Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) is in the second phase of community outreach for the new state development plan, A Better Maryland. Planning developed topics and strategies using input provided by participants in the first round of outreach, which was completed last spring. The Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission, the Maryland Chapter of the American Planning Association, the Maryland Municipal League, the Maryland Association of Counties, Maryland state agencies, and others assisted in this effort.

As part of this second phase, Planning has posted a new online survey to gather additional input as we formulate A Better Maryland. The survey allows you to prioritize the strategies developed following the initial public outreach.

We invite you to take the online strategies survey! ​​​​​​​​
